"Les glorieuses de Bresse" challenge


The evidence for the first of these poultry competitions dates back to 24th December 1865. The Bressan breeders submit their best rolled birds to a jury made up of renowned gourmets, professionals and head-chefs. The producers judged best receive medals of honour. After the prize-giving the birds are sold. Chickens, capons, turkey and hens are sold for the delectation of all food-lovers and experts. There are 3 other such competitions in Bresse - at Bourg-en-Bresse, Montrevel-en-Bresse and Louhans.

PriceFree of charge.
