Dinner in Bernay and an Evening in Rouen

Late afternoon June 6, 2015.

Ending up our day-trip through cider and cheese (and chocolate) country with a dinner in Bernay.

We stopped for dinner in Bernay. Al had a Grimbergen (AGAIN – often the ‘only’ decent beer available in France, at least according to Al) and me a brut farm cider (AGAIN – I really like this stuff).

The drinks came with a serving of rustic bread and some kind of tasty tuna spread.

We decided to order the 19.50€ three-course special which started with a shrimp cocktail…

Eventually we discovered Le Nash, where Al had an Affligem (AGAIN) and I managed to find something different, an Edelweiss Blanc, a sweet light wheat beer that came with a lemon that added another dimension to the taste.

From there we went off on what our ‘Backroads of France’ guidebook called the ‘Cider & Cheese’ route. In Cambremer we discovered some fabulous ciders (& Calvados, the French apple aperitif) followed by a stop at a fromagerie in Livarot and another at Camembert.
