Gastronomy

Gers-Gascony | Gastronomy

A land of gastronomy, a love of nature and an epicurean temperament: the Gers is above all a place of discovery and exchanges. Its cultural identity is rooted in its strong culinary tradition and enhanced with something specific to Gascons – the love of sharing. Local specialities such as foie gras and duck are paired with regional wines, creating a bouquet of flavours that intrigue and delight. The region’s pride in its cuisine is evident: producers in the Gers participate in the Slow Food movement, a commitment to the production of quality food using traditional and sustainable methods.

From the colours and flavours of renowned spirits to the scent of fresh fruits and regional confits, the Gers' gastronomic richness reveals a living and creative culture. Authenticity reigns at 'Ferme Auberge', where young chefs overthrow clichés and revisit regional specialities with inventive and contemporary cuisine.

Savour the famous Armagnac, which is said to be the oldest French brandy, or breathe in the complex perfume of fruits and flowers of our varied wines, such as the Côtes de Gascogne. Visit our wine houses, meet our growers and admire the changing colours of the vines.

‘Les Bons Crus d’Artagnan’ is a group of wine producers in the Gers who this year received the national label of ‘Vignobles & Découvertes’. You are invited to discover the richness of their vineyards, such as Armagnac and Floc de Gascogne, and wines that include Côtes de Gascogne, Saint Mont, Madiran and Pacherenc.

With family, between friends or as a couple, the Gascons have become experts in the art of turning meals into festive occasions. Whether you're at a traditional market, on a farm or in a Tables du Gers restaurant, discover the richness of the Gers gastronomy. In the Gers, all seasons are an opportunity to celebrate the senses.
