A gourmet terroir
In Alsace, avid foodies can enjoy a unique and diverse terroir shaped by nature.
From must-try Alsace sauerkraut (PGI) to the fruits and vegetables of the region, including asparagus, strawberries, and quetsch plums, each season brings its own ephemeral delights.
Cheeses carry the aromas of Alsace's pastures, with Munster of course, but also Tomme du Ried and goat cheese, whether fresh or aged, soft or hard.
Honey comes in a wide variety of liquid or creamed forms reflecting the diversity of Alsace's flora, like characterful and minty pine honey, or comforting and sweet flower or acacia honey with hints of citrus.
