Autumn versions of Burgundian dishes
Producers, artisans and chefs all bring their expertise and creativity to the table, to concoct delicious dishes with the seasonal products of autumn. The secret Burgundy black truffle adds an exceptional touch to each dish. Taste this omelette for instance! And the sweet scents of the pain d’épices (spice bread) will whisk you back to your childhood.
Grapes, red berries and nuts can be found in desserts, or the more daring chefs might even use them to give savoury dishes an original twist. Other local products found here in autumn are chestnuts, freshwater fish and game.
Your culinary voyage can begin... and it's even better when it can be shared!
