Tips for Getting Along with Locals in Aurillac
Aurillac's south-central location makes it both cold in winter and hot in the summer so come prepared for extreme weather. Some beginner French is recommended for getting around shops and restaurants. Since about half of the local land is made up of farms, it's no wonder that food plays such an important role here. Cheese, such as Saint Nectaire and Auvergne Blue cheese, is very popular as is meat. A regular dish is Potee Auvergnate, a casserole made of pork meat and cabbage.
