The French cuisine in Poitou-Charentes

A famous local dish is an eel dish called Matelote d'anguilles, but there is also Sauce aux Lumas (snails with red wine), young goat with green garlic or mutton and ham rubbed with salt and cognac is also often served. You should also try the famous mussels. In addition, the goat cheeses from the region are excellent and carry exotic names such as Chabichou (a 6 cm high cylindrical cheese. Delicious at the end of the meal or with drinks) or simply named after it where it was created such as Lezay or Saint-Bougon. The most famous drink of Poitou-Charentes, however, is the Pineau, an aperitif based on wine and cognac. The local wines from the various departments are almost all of good quality. Don't forget to try the Broyé Poitevin (round cake) or the Macarons de Montmorillon (almond biscuits).
