Food and cooking is King around here. You’ll find much of the cuisine is based around the duck, with of course foie gras holding centre stage. Whether you’re for it or against it, it’s a way of life for the folks round here and if you’re a fan, you won’t taste better the world over – guaranteed!
And where there’s food of course there’s wine. Riscle is surrounded by vineyards, from the world famous Madiran, to the less well known but growing in popularity, Saint Mont. There’s also the smaller privately owned vineyards where you can take an empty water bottle and have it filled with wine for just over a euro a litre – and it’s lovely wine (in fact if you don’t have a water bottle, they’ll even give you one!). It’s these unknown places, slightly off the beaten track that’ll give you memories you’ll treasure forever.
When you’ve sampled the wine, there’s also the local speciality, Floc, which is a delightful aperitif and then of course Armagnac, which needs no explanation.
Restaurants recommended in the village (every one!):
Just a stone’s throw from the house, D’Artagnan is a great place to catch an early morning coffee or a lunch. Offering an excellent ‘menu du jour’, if you make this your choice, you’re sure to rub shoulders with a few local rugby stars!
Restaurants recommended within a Gascon quart d’heure (25 mins – life here is slow!)
