Gourmet dining in Pithiviers
Culinary specialities aplenty
It is difficult to mention Pithiviers without immediately thinking of the famous eponymous pie, stuffed with almond paste. While it is now made with a puff pastry, its origins date back to well before when this type of pastry was invented, in the 18th century. Indeed a version with icing and without puff pastry still exists. This is known as “Pithiviers fondant”. Make the most of your visit to this town to sample other local specialities: Bondaroy au foin also known as Pithiviers au foin, a soft cheese, and croquignoles, little crunchy biscuits.
