The flavors of green Aquitaine

The southern region of France, where Aquitaine is located, is a very sunny area, which is favorable for the cultivation of vegetables and fruit in the Mediterranean. In addition, the area around Bordeaux (the capital of Aquitaine) is a typical wine area, famous for the best types of wine . It all influences the local cuisine. Aquitaine is a region dominated by fresh fish and seafood . While relaxing there, it is worth trying brandade (puree of heavily salted cod with milk and olive oil) and salt à la dieppoise (salt in wine with seafood). A dish known only in this area is lamproie à la bordelaise, or lamprey in vegetables . The Aquitaine cuisine also includes delicacies for meat lovers. It is worth trying, for example, entrecote bordelaise, i.e. Bordeaux entrecote with a sauce based on red wine, butter and shallots. The region's specialty is escalopes de veau aux truffes ( veal schnitzels with truffles ).


While in Aquitaine, you cannot forget about the wine . In the Bordeaux region, this drink is made mainly of cabernet sauvignon, merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and petit verdot (red wines), as well as sauvignon blanc, sémillon and muscadelle (white and sweet wines) varieties. It's worth tasting the delicate St. Émilion and Pomerol and the expressive taste of Médoc and Haut-Médoc.


All of the above treasures of Aquitaine cuisine can be easily tasted while relaxing at Camping Le Coiroux. We will eat a delicious dinner in a local restaurant , for a quick meal it is worth going to a pizzeria, while snacks are waiting for us at the pool bar.

Italy, Croatia, Spain ... are the countries I would like to come back to every summer. I like to discover new places, whether it is a bustling capital city or a quiet town on a mountain slope.
