Clafoutis for Dessert in the Loire Valley

Clafoutis is a dessert for the all too brief cherry season. I make it about once a week when we have cherries, and all the traditional workers restaurants serve it. It’s a home baking classic here, not something that you buy at the patisserie. If you want to try it let us know when you book a tour with us. If it's cherry season, there will be clafoutis.

Bread has been a staple in France for centuries, and central France is the biggest producer of wheat in Western Europe. To find out how bread has been prepared over the centuries and how the ovens developed from communal facilities in the Middle ages to steam injection temperature controlled modern technology book a tour with us.
