Just lately I haven't enjoyed this thread as much as I used to. It's all because the answers seem to have become as obscure as the clues. Generally, when I solve a cryptic clue I can feel a certain satisfaction because the answer absolutely makes sense with the clue. Lately though, I find the answers go beyond that and are not instantly recognisable - by me at least. :? :? :?

So, in the hope that the answer to this clue will be clear to most when solved -

I hear this fashionable setback from Grand Est tastes good. (6,8)
