Because Bayeux and Normandy are not only the place where D-Day happened on June 6th, 1944 ; we have been back to Normandy looking for new sightseeing, activities and nice restaurants for our travelers !
Norman gastronomy is varied: from the seafood platter on the seaside to the Poulet Vallée d'Auge (chicken with cider sauce) in the interland.
One of the most famous dishes remains the Tripes à la mode de Caen...that you can find in all Calvados region. I love the tripes even if I know what they are made of...Do YOU know what tripes are made of? You're sure you want to know?
The tripes are parts of the foot, the stomac and the intestines of porcs. Don't worry, they clean them before cooking them in a stew. This is a perfect dish when you are cold after a day touring the WWII sites on a windy day !
After that, you are good to go on a few mile walk along the Aure river...
