Dieppe is one of coastal town located in Upper Normandy which famous with their scallops and seafood. Two weeks ago we went to this town to taste some of Dieppe’s culinaire and visit the famous “Marché de Dieppe“(read: Dieppe’s market). The market is the lively Saturday morning in downtown Dieppe. A popular meeting place for supplies, including local farm products, and to meet. Marché de Dieppe is one of the biggest one within the region. You can find not only fresh fruits and vegetables, dairy products from local farmer, but also takeaway food, flowers and clothes.
One of my colleague who grew up in Dieppe gave me a list of restaurant which qualified as Michelin restaurant, Restaurant “A la Marmite Dieppoise“. It’s pretty expensive, but quality cannot lie. They have some specialties from Dieppe, such as la marmite Dieppoise, a sort of seafood soup contains prawns, fillet de turbot, scallops, mussels, and lobster in sour cream. We also went to the famous patisserie “Divernet“, and it’s kinda hard not to taste their amazing patisseries.
