The French are proud of their regional foods, it seems in some areas almost to the point of competition between neighbouring towns. I wonder why we're not really bothered here. I see packets of Wiltshire ham or West Country icecream, Norfolk turkeys and the like in the shop but that's not the same as poulet Brest (confusing, I know) our moules du Etang de Thau. I don't believe there aren't or at least weren't regional specialties before the hypermarkets took over. Are we as a nation missing something or have I been missing some things as I travel around? Do any of you have a local food that's a bit special?
