Le Gaudin is very lucky being situated in the Calvados region of Normandy, not only because of the beautiful landscape, culture and history, but also the gastronomy.

Cheese plays a big part in the daily life around here and of course we try to stick to eating some every day! But of course this isn’t just any cheese, these are some of the worlds most famous, and they’re local. These include Camembert, Pavé d’Auge, Livarot, Pont l’Evêque, Neufchatel, Boursin, Brillat-Savarain and Brin de Paille.

There’s even tours you can take to see how these wonderful delights are produced and you can sample along the way too.

Safe to say then, and without trying to sound cheesy, a visit to Normandy isn’t complete without eating some whilst you’re here and then taking home more to share too.

Here’s a nice link explaining some of the cheeses produced locally https://www.cookipedia.co.uk/recipes_wiki/Category:Basse-Normandie_cheeses
