Delectable Dordogne: Land of the Black Truffle

Discover the flavors and natural beauty of the Dordogne, France’s black truffle country. The Dordogne — also known as the Périgord — is a region rich in delicacies and gastronomy all year round, in no small part due to the foie gras and other duck and goose-based ingredients. Come spring time, delight in morel mushrooms, white asparagus, and strawberries. Summer brings a bounty of fresh produce and fruit, and the Fall is time for walnuts, chestnuts, and more mushrooms. It can even be argued that the Winter is a wonderful time to visit, as its the best time to experience the famous black Périgord truffle, which are also known as the ‘Diamonds of Périgord.’ In fact, the truffle here is the centerpiece of many traditions in the Dordogne, and that is reflected everywhere!

Great combination of learning about history and culture, meeting great people, eating good food and drinking good wine. The highlights were leaning to prepare a duck from Pierre Corre the chef, and meeting several winemakers on their own vineyards. An added bonus is that the Auberge is on the pilgrimage trail of Santiago de Compostella so had wonderful walking trails surrounding it. Shirleen

Trip Details

Delve into the flavors of the Dordogne during your 3 hands-on cooking classes with Chef Pierre, who has long called the region home, as he was born here. While he speaks French, the hands-on classes will have a translator on hand to help him communicate his wealth of knowledge — over 30 years of experience — about the region. Courses all focus on the regional specialities, particularly duck and, of course, truffles! One of the courses will take place in a nearby chateau and focuses on other delicious treats of the region: pastries, such as apple tourtiere, rounding out your fabulous gastronomy getaway.
