Herault Travel - Page 15

One cannot visit France without considering the culinary gems to be tasted in each region. Herault is known for a variety of food specialties. Its close proximity to Spain, as well as its large coastline, account for its Catalan influences focusing on seafood. Brandade, beet leaves stuffed with purée of dried cod, known as Brandada in Spain, is a local popular specialty. Snails grilled in their shells also mimic the Catalan style. Other popular seafood of the region includes mussels, oysters, mullet and squid. Roquefort is the most common cheese in Herault, and other local

foods include mushrooms, honey, lamb, sausage and

goat cheese.
