Gourmets by nature

Are you a gourmet? Do you like to discover a terroir with your taste buds by testing good authentic products? You’re looking for the must-have, pure local product? From jams and syrups to charcuterie, beer and wine, we’ve got you covered. So go ahead, treat yourself. Whether it’s a picnic, a fine meal, home cooking or a gift, there’s plenty of gourmet goodness around! The Office has even turned it into a boutique 😉


The fig

in all its forms

In jam, jelly or chutney, the fig is the star of the store. Every first weekend in October, we celebrate the Fig Festival in Mas d’Azil. And all year round, you can enjoy figs candied and cooked in a cauldron. Jellies and chutneys are made with the figue blanche de Castex, a small village in the Arize valley where hardy locals are busy transforming this fruit for everyone to enjoy. Don’t hesitate to try them fresh in early autumn: they’re delicious and a perfect accompaniment to duck, foie gras… The winning combo: a fresh goat’s cheese salad with ripe figs, honey, a dash of pepper and cider vinegar. We’re already salivating!


A land of vineyards

Wines to taste

Who says Ariege isn’t a land of wine? That’s because he doesn’t know the two wineries in the Lèze valley. The IGP Vin de l’Ariège is brilliantly defended at Lastronques and Fossat. At the domaine de Lastronques, wine is a family affair: the vineyards here are ideally sun-drenched, and the setting is full of charm, with ancient buildings and rolling landscapes. At Dominik Benz in Le Fossat, the setting is peaceful and the vineyards produce some very fine organic wines.


Apples, apples, apples...

Extra juice

Apple juice yes, but not just any apple juice, we want extra good and local! Vergers de Sésame concocts a delicious apple juice with a selection of heirloom varieties. And we know them their “plein vent” orchards where 15ancient varieties thrive peacefully, grown without treatment or pesticides. And the result is there: a light and pleasant juice with an inimitable taste. A must-taste!
