Some close-ups of a few tasty treats from Normandy.
Some of them we brought home; some we just snacked on the enroute, especially if we weren’t sure we could take it home…
20 mini dried sausages for 5 euros, in a dozen different flavours – one batch of these were flavoured with nuts and the other with hazelnuts. They travelled well and were part of our daily French picnics for several days.
Who could resist French farm cider, especially from Normandy, which is famous for it?
They are actually famous for all apple-related products such as the boozy aperitif Calvados.
Or just plain old juice, which is anything but plain… Some of the most amazing cheese in the world comes from Normandy but they’re a bit tricky to take home to Canada.
Camembert is a village in this region, as is Neufchatel and Livarot. Of course, when I saw that this cheese plate contained a few of the local cheeses, I had to try it.
Fleur de Mer, a melt-in-your-mouth flaky sea salt, along with other varieties of sea salt, were one thing I knew I could take home.
Salt and vinegar.
Salt and pepper.Bottles of fish soup.
And for dessert?

Yummy! I am hungry!
I seem to have gained a couple of pounds after writing this post… Writing about food is not helpful very helpful in keeping my weight down!
mmm..tasty treats indeed!
reading this post makes me hungry.. I’m off to find some cheese to snack on!
I spent a lot of time in France stuffing my face with cheese – the Neufchatel was particularly delicious!
Will keep a look out for Neufchatel, when I go to the gourmet supermarket. Thanks for the recommendation. 🙂
The French REALLY know how to do a market – they are by far the best in the world – sooooooo delicious! 🙂
I couldn’t believe the number of unique foods available in Normandy!
How fabulous, I can’t wait to explore that area one day!
Your photos brought back some lovely and delicious memories!
Not fair. I haven’t eaten dinner yet and those look amazing!
