A taste of Normandy

Today my menu takes you to the north of France in the beautiful Normandy Region.

Normandy is famous throughout the world for its WWII D-Day beaches and WWI battlefields and cemeteries.

The top most visited sites in Normandy by American travellers include the Abbey of Mon-Saint-Michel and Giverny, depicted in many of Claude Monet’s paintings, particularly the water lily series.

Dieppe is the oldest sea resort in France and a short drive down the coast lies the village of Etretat, situated between magnificent white cliffs.

Honfleur is considered the birthplace of impressionist painting. This charming harbour village, with narrow timbered houses dates from the 11th century, and has always attracted artists, among them Monet and the poet Baudelaire.

An the film I have chosen today to accompany the menu is La Disparue de Deauville. A 2007 film with Sophie Marceau et Christophe Lambert.
