The Tours region offers lots of great produce and it is not by chance that the kings of France stayed there for an extended period, offering all kind of delights close at hand.
It is also the reason why culinary identity is not marked like other areas in France here, it is national and universal!
This garden of France is a source of never ending cooking inspirations.
Artisans, farmers, fishermen, butchers, winemakers and local producers share the same passion for the produce and the valorisation of our Loire region with us.
Don't hesitate to visit them to appreciate their savoir faire.
