French food is amongst the best in the world, there's no doubt. Even the basics of bread and cheese are made with great pride by the French. Vendée food and wine is no exception.
When we visit the Vendée we are always pleasantly surprised at the quality of food basics - even to the point of taking photographs of them!
Here is a photograph of some french bread sticks (baguettes) on sale in a boulangerie on the Ile de Ré.
