Camus Food Pairings : a culinary journey

Cognac, this elegant and refined spirit, is much more than just a drink to be enjoyed at the end of a meal. It can also be paired harmoniously with a variety of dishes, enhancing every stage of your meal. Join us on a culinary journey to discover food and cognac pairings, for an unforgettable taste experience.

The Aperitif: Elegance meets conviviality

The aperitif is a moment for sharing and conviviality, where the subtle aromas of cognac mingle with the richness of fine charcuterie to create a perfectly balanced pairing. For a VS cognac, you can choose beef jerky, an American speciality. Your VSOP cognac will go perfectly with charcuterie from around the world: spicy salami, andouille, prosciutto di parma or foie gras. Or are you more into pâté, pork rillette or terrines? It's time to take out your XO cognac in its prestige decanter. When tasting, let the flavors of the charcuterie blend harmoniously with the nuances of the cognac, offering your guests an elegant and memorable aperitif experience. Cheers!

The starter: Fresh and subtle harmony

To start your meal in style, opt for a light, delicate starter. Seafood, such as oysters or shrimp, goes wonderfully well with a young, fresh cognac. Camus cognac Ile de Ré Fine Island is the perfect match for these seafood delights. The iodine notes and marine profile of this cognac blend perfectly with the freshness of the seafood, creating a harmony on the palate that will delight your taste buds.

The floral aromas of VSOP are delicious with crab, lobster or seaweed. You can also enjoy creamy raw fish such as tuna, salmon or eel with your glass of cognac.

The Main Course : Balance and richness of flavours

When it's time for the main course, look for a balance between the richness of the flavors and the complexity of the cognac. VSOP offers an extraordinary tasting experience with sweet and savory. For your main course, choose Peking duck or pork with a glazed honey sauce.

Roast poultry also goes very well with an XO.These older cognacs offer deeper aromas that underline the tenderness of the meat, creating a spellbinding symphony of flavors.

The Cheese : French elegance

Cheese occupies a special place in French gastronomy, and it would be a shame not to enjoy it with a Camus cognac. Choose a VSOP for young cheeses such as Edam, Gouda or Cheddar. Do you prefer stronger cheeses? Enjoy your VSOP with Brie or Gorgonzola. The richness and complexity of XO is a perfect match for a variety of mature cheeses. Mimolette, Camembert, Emmental, Manchego or Parmesan are excellent choices.

Dessert: Sweets and chocolate

Dessert is the perfect opportunity to round off this culinary journey in style. Chocolate lovers will not be left out. We suggest three different desserts to match your favorite cognac:

  • VS : crunchy hazelnut praline with creamy white chocolate
  • VSOP : strawberries or cherries coated in dark chocolate
  • XO : dark chocolate truffles or mousse
