Rouen, along the River Seine, the Place du Vieux-Marche designates
where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Just north of Caen, lie the
beaches of Normandy where the allied invasion poured forth during World
War II. William the Conqueror also used these shores to set off for
the Battle of Hastings. Artistic history is deep
too. Mont-St-Michel towers upon an island of rock and enjoys superstar
status as one of the greatest architectural achievements in all of
The port village
of Honfleur gave birth to Impressionism, and just outside of Giverny is
where Monet derived inspiration for painting water lilies. Fortunately
some of Normandy's residents realized that its combination of farmlands
and coastline is not only good for making history but for making food
too. Which, from our standpoint, is a great thing. Lobster, oysters,
Camembert cheese, and Calvados brandy are just a few of its regional
specialties that can turn a meal--dare we say--into being historic.
