Gastronomy and terroir

our tables, our products, our recipes

Cantal isn't just a land of cheese! Here, flavour, authenticity and tradition all come together in the quality of the local products that contribute to our culinary specialties, which is the foundation of the terroir.

Far from limiting yourself to the generous portions of truffade or tripoux, quintessential Auvergnat recipes, restaurants in Cantal offer a real culinary diversity, from Michelin-starred chefs to cozy bistros.

Cradle of the salers and aubrac cow breeds, Cantal is also renowned for its savoury fresh and cured meats, which you can find at market or directly from the farm.
