Camping de la Plage – Houlgate | À visiter | Discover the specialities of Normandy

Take advantage of your stay in our beautiful region to discover the gastronomic specialities to be tasted without moderation. In addition to these beautiful landscapes, Normandy can offer you some great gastronomic discoveries.


Camembert cheese


Camembert, the most famous French cheese in the world, cannot be missed. If you’re staying in Normandy, it’s an essential part of the gastronomy that you must try. To try a real Norman Camembert, look for Camemberts with the PDO “Camembert de Normandie”.


Tripe à la mode de Caen


Another must of Norman cuisine: tripe à la mode de Caen. Avoid this dish if you don’t like offal. This culinary preparation is made from parts of the stomach of a ruminant and a beef foot. You can taste it in many Norman restaurants. There is even a brotherhood dedicated to the tasting of tripe à la mode de Caen, called the Grand Ordre de la Tripière d’or.


Andouille de vire

You can’t stay in Normandy without hearing about the andouille de Vire. Fans of charcuterie will love this pork-based speciality. To be eaten cold and as an aperitif, it is the perfect start to a meal of pure Norman tradition.


Teurgoule is a Norman culinary speciality that can be called torgoule or tergoule. Teurgoule is a dessert made from sweetened rice pudding with cinnamon. The teurgoule is cooked over a very low heat for 5 hours in a dish specially designed for this dessert. You can accompany your teurgoule with cider for a 100% Norman dessert.


Norman Cider


Accompany all your Norman dishes with a Normandy cider. This alcoholic beverage obtained from the fermentation of apple juice is no longer in need of introduction. Normandy is one of the two main regions in France that grows cider apples and can therefore produce this drink.
