Create Normandy’s Foodie Delights At Home

November 18, 2020

With travel on hold for the time being, we’re all looking for new ways to spend time inside. Cooking and creating new dishes is a great way to spend time at home and you can even tie it into your travels by cooking dishes from the places you long to visit. For some inspiration, take a look at our list of some of the best Normandy delicacies to re-create at home!

1. Marmite Dieppoise

Normandy has some of the best seafood in France and Dieppe has it’s very own fish stew. Originally created in the 1960s for sailors arriving into the port, the dish includes a mix of flavoursome seafood and freshly caught fish.  It has a kick too, with cayenne pepper and paprika being added to some dishes, not forgetting the locally churned butter or cream.

2. Pont l’Evêque Croque-Monsieur

A classic French lunch is the Croque-Monsieur. This recipe gives it a Normandy twist by using the regional Pont l’Eveque cheese and andouille sausage. Enjoy for a treat weekday lunch or pair with some cider for a weekend brunch.

3. One Pot Normandy Chicken

Some of the best meals are one pot recipes. Throw everything into the same pot and let the flavours infuse with each other to create a delicious taste. This One Pot Normandy Chicken uses apples and cider for flavour – something Normandy has in abundance! Enjoy with some crusty bread and a cold glass of wine (or apple juice for the little ones!)

4. Tarte Normande

You’ve devoured the fish stew, you’ve munched the cheese, now it’s time for something sweet. Normandy have some of the juiciest, tastiest apples in France, many of which are used to make cider. But if you’re looking for food rather than drink, a Tarte Normande will not let you down. A crisp, shortcrust pastry is filled with a delicate frangipane cream filling and topped with finely sliced Normandy apples. Sprinkle some sugar over the top and dig in!

5. Teurgoule

Teurgoule is the Norman take on a classic rice pudding. Originally baked in a wood-fired oven after a day of baking, Teurgoule is made with full-fat milk, rice, sugar, salt and a generous sprinkling of cinnamon. These days the rice pudding is cooked in the oven at a low temperature, so it develops a crust. Enjoy with some torn brioche and local wine – parfait!
