【Joan of Arc】
There are sites where Joan of Arc appeared during the Hundred Years War. She got audience with Charles IV in Chinon and released Orleans from the British army. It’s interesting to visit while following her history.
It’s the most famous specialty in the region. It looks like an apple tarte, but we heat apples at first and put the pie. It’s the sisters of Tatin made it by error.

【Cream of Anjou（ Crémet d’Anjou ）】
It’s a dessert in Angers where the big tapestry is famous. Although it looks like a sundae of strawberry, but it’s the sundae of pear.
