In a country known for its gastronomic treasures, the French themselves consistently choose the Southwest as the country's best area for enjoying food and wine. The Dordogne region's most celebrated products include perle noire truffles, walnuts, chestnuts, strawberries, asparagus, Armagnac, duck, and wild mushrooms. When combined, these ingredients provide the foie gras, confits de canard, and terrines savored by those lucky enough to live in or visit the area. The area boasts more than 40 open-air farmers markets selling regional delicacies as well as copper kitchen wares, French linens and local crafts.
