You know you are in France when you visit an entire village celebrating strawberries. The French have an intimate relationship with their countryside and many food events take place throughout the year. Intertwined in the production of food is a culture of acknowledging local producers that farm the land and the crops that result. In the Dordogne Valley, local producers are varied and many. To celebrate the fruits of their labour, village fetes (festivals) take place for key regional products from walnuts to truffles.
