The Big Prune Show at Agen

Agen Grand Pruneau Show
Agen (47 Lot-et-Garonne, Aquitaine) is home to the famous Agen Prune – the gently baked moist plums which are a key feature of SW France cuisine. The delicacy (although not that delicate) is protected as an Appellation Controllee.
Agen celebrates its Prune with a weekend festival every Autumn – taste and learn with music and dancing and the town in a festive mood. The local wine is Buzet AC – good Bordeaux style red, white and rose.
