It is impossible to speak of Burgundy without speaking gastronomy... the two are inextricably intertwined ! A region where gourmandise and conviviality are pre-requisites for sharing pleasant moments around a well-laid table.
Burgundy region is renowned worldwide for its gastronomy and local specialities that tempt all taste buds ! Here are some specialities that everyone has to taste at least once !
Genuine emblem of the region, the snail of Burgundy is the speciality par excellence ! In its shell with parsley and butter or cooked in another way : the snail captivates everyone ! Another major example : the truffle from Burgundy, genuine black diamond of gastronomy with its unique flavour ! The Borvo smoked salmon : an institution in Burgundy ! Including the traditional Dijon mustard, the blackcurrant, the famous "gougère" (choux pastry filled with cheese), ham Chablis style, eggs in "meurette" (in a red wine sauce), boeuf bourguignon... and all the regional cheeses like Epoisses, Soumaintrain and fresh goat cheese.
When it comes to sweets, don't miss honeyed spiced bread and more locally the "Croquet de Saint Bris" : a small crunchy and almond biscuit.
To get all these good local products please go to the speciality shops in the heart of the city center, in the Auxerre region, in Yonne. It offers you a large range of local wines and food !
