And to finish your meal, why not try a Gâteau à la broche (spit-roast cake) or Pastis gascon, with its extremely delicate layers of raised puff pastry? In the summer months, the sweet melons of Quercy and Lectoure provide a refreshing alternative.
The Department du Lot (Lot County of France) is renowned for its food and wines and is a perfect venue for vacations off the beaten track. Here, fine dining is an art with its own magazine Bonnes Tables du Lot and the Lot is proud of its gastronomic traditions. Cahors vineyards, introduced by Roman Emperors more than two thousand years ago, produce red wines that are not only the darkest but among the strongest. Perfect accompaniment to the cuisine of the South West – foie gras, breast or confit of duck, Quercy Farm lamb, charcuterie - which is truly world class. Try a carpaccio of scallops, potatoes and truffles…
Eating out or at home is an experience for the whole family and children are welcome at Manoir Les Gaillardoux and in most local restaurants.
