In Gironde holidays go together with gastronomy
The Médoc cuisine is so varied and rich, that if we were to make a list, we would need more than one site; therefore, let’s just focus on the basics: The quality of the produce, which is utterly, together with keeping the receipe simple bring out the flavours.
A couple of mouth-watering delicacies just to whet your appetite during your stay at Les Acacias du Médoc: Oysters from the Arcachon Lake, freshly delicious, sea lamprey Bordeaux style, a savoury and amazing dish, a slice foie gras of Gironde on a piece of toasted farmhouse bread, king shrimps of Médoc just grilled on vine shoots fire, etc.
On the sweet side, the famous bouchons bordelais (delicious filled chocolate almond petit four flavoured with Fine Bordeaux), sarments du Médoc (fine vine-shaped shoots chocolate enhanced by citrus fruit notes), noisettines du Médoc (typical Bordeaux chocolate coated hazelnuts)…While enjoying these fine sweet treats, think of acqua gym lessons at the campsite to make up for this indulging!
