Our campsite is located in the heart of a gustatory battle. Is the Aligot-Saucisse better in Aveyron than in Lozere? Is the Pélardon really Gardois?
The essential! Very good for the diet :)

Pelardons and sheep's milk cheeses
THE cheese of the Cevennes!
Not a meal without Pélardon. Pélardon is a protected designation of origin for a very small raw goat's milk cheese from our region.
Farçous / Farsous
The dish of childhood.
A good salad and some farcous will do for lunch. Recipe: Chard, sausage meat, smoked bacon, parsley, onion, garlic cloves, dry bread, milk, flour, eggs

The fricandeau is a very appreciated specialty of the Aveyron. It is a pork-based country pâté, baked in a pork crépine, which gives it an incomparable taste and texture.
