Market days in the Charente

16CharenteLocally produced Beef and Veal, capons (la poule noire de Barbezieux), snails, beans, chestnuts, goats cheese and truffles are just a few of the specialities available in the Charente departement.
The area is perhaps best known for Cognac brandy – also try Pineau des Charentes – a local blend of unfermented grape juice and cognac.
