Normandy: rustic kitchen design, rich dishes

Our new summer edition of the kitchen & design magazine Print takes you on one Journey through Normandy, perhaps the most underrated region in our valued neighbor France. The glamor of the Côte d’Azur does not prevail here, the playful country life of Provence, the bitter wine enjoyment of Bordeaux.

Above all, however, the people here know how to enjoy the local, substantial specialties with delight.

Camembert, cider, calvados: the three big Cs dominate the menu of local bistros, which with their strong alcohol and fat content and the generous addition of cream and sugar stand in stark contrast to the sometimes barren landscape.
