FOOD AND RESTAURANTS
Classic dishes include cassoulet (beans and meat casserole), tapenade (olive paste), wild boar stew, confit de canard (duck cooked in duck fat), bourride (fish stew with aioli garlic mayonaise). The Languedoc is also the home to a good truffle harvest and some of the tastiest oysters in France.
The Languedoc is one of the largest wine growing regions of France and until recently these syrah based wines were also the most affordable. They’ve gone up in price recently because they’ve gotten a wide international recognition. However, there are still many of them to be had for less than €10 and they are worth looking at. Our favorites (reds) are from Corbieres, Minervois, Coteaux de Languedoc and Faugeres.
