Toddlers will love the crepes which are on sale throughout the region. They come in both sweet and savoury flavours and there is something for everyone! The creamy omelettes of the Mont Saint Michel, the Vire andouille sausages, the “boudin” sausages of Mortagne are also guaranteed to satisfy younger travellers.
The regional cuisine is based around the three main products of the region: seafood, apples and dairy products. Specialities from the sea include Dieppe sole and Normandy oysters. Normandy is the home of several world-famous cheeses: Neufchâtel, Pont-L’Evêque, Livarot (also known as the “Colonel”), and the round Camembert of Marie Harel. It is renowned for its variety of meats, from the delicate flavor of saltmarsh lamb to creamy chicken “à la Vallée d’Auge” and duck “à la Rouennaise”. Local desserts include “bourdelots” or “teurgoule”, or such sweets as Isigny toffees or apple sugars from Rouen.
