Périgord, in northern Aquitaine is an area well known for its truffles, foie gras, and walnuts.  Although the groves you see today are somewhat newer trees, this is talk of evidence which suggests that walnut groves have flourished in this corner of the world for the last 17,000 years (yes, I said 17,000 years!)  and they have been staple of the regions thriving economy since the 10th century.

This tart is a traditional recipe of sweet pastry, walnuts, eggs, sugar and cream … what more could you want on a cold winter evening…
