Food specialities

Gardienne de Taureau: this beef stew served with rice is delicious with a hearty red from La Clape.

Anchoïde: anchovy paste flavoured with garlic, olive oil and herbs. A fruity Corbières rosé is refreshing with this anchovy paste served on toast with aperitifs.

Wild boar: delicious barbecued or grilled, often served as a slow-cooked stew (in red wine of course) called acivet.
