Gastronomy tour in Charente, Dordogne and Périgord

The Périgord and the Charente are two regions of France that are full of gastronomic specialties. During your stay at the Eymouthiers camping, don't miss out on tasting their emblematic dishes.


The Périgord is known for its black truffle, a variety highly sought after by chefs for its subtle and delicate flavor. It can be found in many local dishes, such as scrambled eggs with truffle or truffade, a dish of grated potatoes and melted cheese. Another example, the Périgueux sauce is a reduction of white wine with a blond roux to which diced truffles are added.


Another specialty of the Périgord, foie gras, prepared according to the traditional method and accompanied by onion or fig confit. Finally, the walnut is also very present in the Périgourdine cuisine, whether in salads, meat dishes or desserts.


As for the Charente, it is the land of cognac, a brandy produced from grapes and aged in oak barrels. It is often served as an aperitif, but can also be used in cooking to bring a unique flavor to dishes such as duck breast or risotto. In alcohol, you can't miss the pineau des Charentes!


Charente is also renowned for its oysters, raised in the marshes of the region and tasted fresh with a squeeze of lemon or a mignonette sauce. Finally, don't miss out on tasting the Charente walnut tart, a traditional dessert made with walnuts, honey and cream. And for the pâté lovers, you absolutely must try the potato pâté and the Charentais grillon.


One thing is certain, if you stay in our camping with swimming pool in Eymouthiers, in Charente, which borders the Dordogne, you should find your happiness in terms of local gastronomy!
