Terroir and specialities
Toulouse is the capital of the Occitan region and a worthy representative of local gastronomy. Here the great dining tables showcase the charcuterie, poultry, lamb and veal from local farms.
But please allow us to introduce you to the 100% Toulouse specialities that are often less well-known by the general public, products from here that will give your break a real taste of the South-West.
The star of the South-West, the star of any barbecue, the star of the Cassoulet; that’s the Toulouse Sausage! You can find it by looking for the Red Label at supermarkets or, if you prefer, you can source it directly from local producers that set up their stalls at our markets. This is an artisanal sausage that can even be served with a salad if you are watching your figure.
You can watch a Fénétra recipe video by Christian, assisted by Julie, from « Carnets de Julie ». This is a generous gateau, wonderfully fresh and light, with a base made of almonds and filled with lemons and apricots. Best enjoyed once summer comes around.
