Nivernais (French pronunciation: ​[nivɛʁnɛ]) is former province of France, around the city of Nevers and in the département of Nièvre.

The raw climate and soils cause the area to be heavily wooded.

Culture[edit]

"A la nivernaise" refers to a cooking style involving a glaze, usually of butter and sugar, although sometimes involving butter and some other ingredient.
