Treat your tastebuds to Finistère

Crêpe in Finistère

Authentic, original, and way out the Breton peninsula:
Finistère certainly offers something out of the ordinary and that includes its food.

Breton cuisine is rich and varied, nowhere more so than in Finistère. Here, we are surrounded by glittering waters filled with white fish, shellfish and crabs; we have rolling fields and loaded fruit trees; we have rich soil for producing artichokes, carrots, cabbage and cauliflowers, and we have a perfect balance of rain and sun for the tastiest crops.

Whether you're longing for a cool, fresh, golden cider, local salted butter thickly spread on hunks of bread, pale pink prawns nestling in crisp salad leaves or a warm and simmering casserole followed by a velvety chocolate pudding, Finistère will find a way to appease your appetite and please your tastebuds!

This land is rather like a platter of fresh produce set on a shining sea - don't miss your chance to come and discover the best flavours in France.
