TRUFFLES AND FOIE GRAS IN THE DORDOGNE

The trip to the Dordogne, February 2014, could not have been more spectacular.  We feasted on foie gras, truffles, duck, walnuts and much more EVERY day.Dordogne_1  We had 5 cooking classes, one in the Château de Puymartin, and several wine and market visits.  We visited Font de Gaume, one of the last prehistoric caves open to the public and had tours of Sarlat and Perigieux.  We also went to the ONLY truffle museum in France!!!

Nini the pig found 700g of truffles in one hour.  We cooked an all truffle meal and then dined with the chef on the only night the restaurant is closed.  For our Gala we ate magnificent poached foie gras!

“The trip to Sorges was great, and the good news is that I not only did not gain weight, but that my cardiologist also prescribed more foie gras.
