Truffles are the ‘black gold’ of the Périgord and foie gras is also a regional speciality. Duck (magret or confit de canard) and goose are the traditional staples of most restaurants and oil pressed from locally grown walnuts is the basis of many local salads. For keen shoppers it is possible to visit at least one different village market everyday of the week to discover and sample regional produce. You can also visit a walnut oil mill, the foie gras farms or even go on a truffle hunt in a neighbouring village.
