I will traveling through Burgundy in mid - late March. I've sorted out how to visit as many markets as possible in the towns I'm visiting: Dijon, Autun, Beaune, Semur-en-Auxois, Avallon, Montbard and Vézelay. Unfortunately I won't have access to a kitchen, so I will need to purchase foods I can picnic on without much preperation. In addition to the markets, I like to go to local bakeries, charcuteries and cheese shops. Anyone have a favorite shop in these towns?
Late March may not be the best season for produce--can anyone advise me what will be in season?
I'd like to try as many local foods as possible. I know about the mustard, wine/kir, escargots, boeuf bourguignon, honey and jambon persillé. What else shouldn't I miss?
