Feast of green lentils from Berry in Vatan

27/08/2018

Treasure of our region, the green lentil of Berry is known throughout France!





It differs from conventional lenses in its particular taste of chestnut which makes all its success.

Label red and PGI, it is produced in 44 municipalities of Indre and 5 communes of Cher. To be enjoyed without moderation, the Berry lentil is the basis of many recipes of yesteryear such as the small salt with lentils, or the lentil salad.

Come and celebrate one of the prides of our territory on September 8th and 9th in the commune of Vatan just 20 minutes from Issoudun and 25 minutes from Chateauroux.

On the occasion of this 24th edition of the Berry green lentils festival, the weekend promises to be rich in entertainment.

The event revolves around fairy tales, and the music will be part of the party throughout these 2 days. The famous singer Pascal Danel, interpreter of the title "the snows of Kilimanjaro" will do us the honor of his presence. Also present will be Laurent Berroyer and Fabrice Guillot, accompanied by fanfares to animate this festival.

Several other activities are planned in the program such as a parade of floats, a parade of cars and motorcycles collections and a farmer's market with local products and cooking competitions.

Lentil-based specialties will also be served for a dinner dance at a price of 26 €.
