l'Oliverie - 79200 - SAURAIS - Naturism in Gâtine Vendéenne

Le Pays de Gâtine

can be proud of its many culinary specialities and regional products. From starter to dessert
you can try tasting the “ farci Poitevin “, charentais melon, and the unmissable “ cagouilles “
or “ lumas “ – snails from the Gâtine at St Pardoux farmed in this area or collected along the country roads after a rain shower…

 farci poitevin

For grilled meats, choose from rib of Parthenay beef which is world-renowned for its quality,
or lamb chops from Gâtine lamb certified under the Mouton Village label.

Accompany these with the “ Cuisine de mojettes “, an amazing combination of flavours.

To follow, an embarrassing choice of cheeses, especially goats cheese.
One piece of advice - give in and try them all !!!!
For dessert you could opt for fruit from the gardens of La Gâtine or bread buttered with Echiré butter, topped with honey.
Of course you are likely to be offered a piece of “tourteau fromager “, a speciality of the region.
The last act in this opera of flavours is a final “ gourmandise “ :  “ l`angélique des marais “ from the area surrounding Niort.
To be tasted crystallized, in a liquor or in a sorbet, it’s your choice !
