Tourtière Landaise and Pastis Gascon

Return
Where to find this product?

These pastries can be found at markets in Landes and Lot-et-Garonne. You will certainly find them if you walk through the markets of Penne-d’Agenais or Touron-d’Agenais. The pastis Gascon can also be found in Gers where it is called a croustade!

When to find it? All year round

Make sure you don’t get mixed up when you’re talking about tourtière landaise or pastis gascon. Indeed, although these two traditional pastries may be cousins, purists might take offence. With a similar composition, both desserts are comprised of a fine layer of pastry covered with slices of apples or prunes (in Lot-et-Garonne), all basted with the famous traditional Armagnac. This is where the great nuance between the two specialities comes in. Whilst tourtière landaise is covered with a thin sheet of flat pastry, the pastis gascon is taller and crunchier thanks to its many layers of delicate pastry which form a chiffonade on top. The best way to learn the differences between these two traditional pastries is by tasting them.
