Somersaults
Awaken your taste buds

Our local delicacies

The discovery of a territory also passes through the plate! To appreciate the art of living in Saumur, it is essential to taste our specialties. Lovers of authentic products and original creations full of flavors will be delighted...

The traditional ones

Fouées

the fouées

Conviviality guaranteed with these round and hollow rolls that are garnished with rillettes, cheese or white beans.

The mushrooms

Directly harvested in our cellars, we taste them as they are, just pan-fried. Or else we pull out all the stops with our somersaults! These big button mushrooms are stuffed with garlic, rillettes, goat cheese, parsley… then baked.

The smashed apples

An 18th century recipe born in the village of Turquant, tapped apples are dehydrated apples then… flattened with a hammer! Rediscovered in the 1980s, tapées apples are now available in many local shops and even have their own museum, at a producer's.

Crémet d'Anjou

A sweetness all in freshness and lightness that we allow ourselves without remorse at the end of the meal! Crémet d'Anjou is a mixture of whipped cream and beaten egg whites, delicately flavored with vanilla, sugar and lemon...

Combier liqueurs

Founded in the 19th century, the Combier distillery gave birth to Triple Sec and a number of liqueur recipes to be enjoyed in moderation! Still in operation in the city center of Saumur, the establishment enjoys an international reputation.

La Tourangelle Oils

Since 1867, the Saumur oil mill has been producing oils using traditional methods. Today, this family business has expanded the range, while maintaining the high quality requirements of the selected raw materials: cosmetic oils, oils with flavors from around the world, or even mayonnaise with good free-range hen eggs.

Creations

The Gouline

The Gouline

This gourmet pie, now emblematic of Anjou, is cooked with 100% local products! Rillauds, mushrooms, shallots, Tomme d'Anjou and… a little white wine (Chenin, of course!).

The Vinaillou

Born in the 2000s, Vinaillou is a biscuit originally prepared with Cabernet d'Anjou, a semi-dry rosé that brings a special flavor to small cakes. Today there are many variations of Vinaillou (apple, lemon, honey, etc.).

The Shard of the Loire

A unique cake, created and made by the Montsoreau baker-pastry chef, Romain Besnard. As soft as you can imagine, Éclat de Loire is prepared with almonds and “L'Original Combier” orange liqueur. And to prolong the pleasure, this “travel” cake benefits from a long shelf life… For goodness sake.
