Nivernais (French pronunciation: ​[nivɛʁnɛ]) is a former province of France, around the city of Nevers, which forms the modern department of Nièvre. It roughly coincides with the former Duchy of Nevers.[1]

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

Culture[edit]

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