3. Farçous from Aveyron

Don’t you know farçous? Well, come and stroll around the Aveyron markets, like the one in Rodez, for example, and sample some farçous. Farçou is a composition of salted and peppered minced meat made with fatty bacon, chard greens, parsley, pigmeat, eggs, wheat flour and a little milk. This stuffing is then usually fried in a pan. They will accompany your aperitifs (in moderation) as well as your Aveyron salads.

Fouace or fouasse or foassa is a large, crown-shaped bread made in Rouergue and Haute-Auvergne. This is a homemade bread dough, scented with orange blossom water, slightly sweet and buttery, fairly dense, made from soft wheat flour and enriched with eggs.
