Typical regional products in the Cevennes

Goat Cheese

Products like the goat cheese Pélardon was originally manufactured in the Cevennes because the barren landscape offered not too many alternatives for agricultural products. The Pélardon is made of one hundred percent raw milk of goats. Once it has coagulated, the curd is scooped into moulds with ladles. After the whey is drained completely it is salted; then it needs to mature for eleven days. This cheese has a nutty aroma; whose intensity intensifies with increasing maturity.


The chestnut tree was popular in the Cevennes because its wood is protected from rotting due to the high tannin content while it could be well finished at the same time. Soon it was discovered that the chestnut is an excellent and filling food, rich in vitamins and high in starch. Today, the sweet chestnut is one of the typical products of the region.


Typical for the Cevennes is the La saucisse d'Anduze, a sausage made from pork.
