The Somme, between land and sea France
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover The Somme, between land and sea

One thing's for sure, Picardie certainly has plenty to offer fish-lovers!
Menus feature sole, shrimp and eel (which is served smoked or in a pie, and can be found in many a local recipe) direct from the Channel, along with more earthy dishes such as duck paté, rabbit served with prunes or perhaps 'ficelle picarde', literally 'Picardie parcel' (a crêpe served with a slice of ham and a mushroom sauce).
Foodies with a sweet tooth will no doubt enjoy the must-try after-dinner delights commonly served here, such as the macaroons, Amiens fine chocolate biscuits and poppies (made using cocoa beans flavoured with poppy liqueur).
