My top picks for scrumptous foods in beautiful towns of Castets & Dax. If you love Madeleines or Fois Gras. This is the place to find the best tasting Madeleines (Dax) and Fois Gras (Castets) in the whole of France!!
Madeleines are very small sponge cakes in the shape of a shell and the ones found in “Madeleines de Dax” melt at the tip of your tongue. However they do come at a price; its about 30 euros for a dozen but it is well worth it. Every time my family is in Le Pays Basque; I make sure and get someone, anyone to take me to Dax. It’s not exactly an option. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of Fois Gras de Canard; it is probably best you try it first before doing any research on this rich and mouth-watering pate.
