The Gersois is epicurean, and if there is one area where this particularity is expressed, it is that of the table… Here the savoir-vivre is intimately linked to the arts of the table and local products!

Savory local flavors

The duck, available to infinity

With an ambitious vision about to IGP specific to its department, the duck with foie gras from Gers naturally makes the reputation of the divine foie gras in all spheres of French and international gastronomy. A dish that we know how to prepare in Gers houses as well as in restaurants!

Geese and ducks, are part of the decor of our campaign. The quality of their flesh tastes like confit: an old cooking method where the noble parts remain for hours in salt and cooked in their fat until this culinary specialty is obtained, typical of the South-West of France.

The magret born here!

André DAGUIN gave birth to the magret in 1959, from the Hôtel de France in Auch.

Duck is also eaten stuffed, in the oven, in a casserole dish, with figs, onions, apples, grilled, duck breast, dried ... All its pieces are appreciated: aiguillettes, gizzards, sleeves, necks, hearts, fillets, thighs, carcasses.

Every year, in February, an ancestral breed is in the spotlight with some of our restaurateurs: the Noire d'Astarac.

Gascon black pigs

It's here oldest breed known in France. The black Gascon pig, of the Iberian type, finds its origin in the Nébouzan, enclosed between Armagnac, Comminges and Lomagne. Race threatened with extinction, today less than 100 farms are committed to saving it. This is the case in the Gers, at the Bidache farm in Castéra-Verduzan.

Other regional delicacies

Fine and sweet, it can be eaten "plain" or accompanied by a dash of Gascogne floccu ! On the Lectoure side, his brotherhood celebrates it in the middle of summer.

THEwhite garlic from Lomagne, ancestral culture in Lomagnole soil (region of the lower valley of the Gers from Montestruc-sur-Gers and the territories further east bounded by the course of the Garonne, to Beaumont-de-Lomagne in the Tarn- et-Garonne).

Beautiful book on gastronomy

Perhaps at first glance outdated, this book is full of charm. My crush goes to work Le Gers - Delightful delict, published by Gypeate.

 »Its cover and its title already evoke the idea of ​​this small guilty pleasure: Gluttony, but with refinement… What is visible through not only receipts unveiled but also by very beautiful pictures which highlight, over the pages, dishes and details of Gers heritage.
It is a beautiful book, in the original format, to use of course to prepare excellent recipes, but also to slip into its library as such in order to admire the quality of the visual. Thus, we will enjoy doubly! "
