Grown on the Opal Coast and in Picardy, the Ratte du Touquetis the brand name of a type of potato. Of the Ratte variety, it appeared in Touquet in 1962, where it benefits from the mild, pleasant climate. Knobbly and mouse-shaped, the Ratte du Touquet, also called "ram's horn" (corne de belier), has firm flesh and a delicate chestnut flavour. Despite being a low-cropper, the Ratte du Touquet is very much enjoyed by gourmets, who steam it, boil it, turn it into rissoles or bake it in its jacket. It is satisfying, and also very good for health, as it contains vitamin C as well as a lot of protein and fibre. There are also many minerals in the famous Ratte du Touquet.
