Cheese fondue

During your holidays in Savoie, you cannot skip the cheese fondue. A typical cheese fondue in this region is made with the following cheeses: Comté de Savoie, Beaufort, Tomme de Savoie and Emmentale. These cheeses are kept warm in a Caquelon, which is a thick-walled pan smeared with garlic. This pan ensures that the cheese does not solidify. With a cheese fondue, drink a delicious white wine such as an Apremont.



Directly translated, raclette means scrape or sheep, but it is also the type of cheese used in this typical Savoie dish. In a raclette, a round cheese is cut in half and heated on one side. This is done by fire, an oven or a special raclette appliance. The melted cheese is scraped off the piece of cheese and served with various products such as potatoes, pickles or fine meats such as ham or salami. This delicious dish is accompanied by a white wine.

The dish was created because cheese farmers wanted to make reblochon cheese better known. Nowadays, it is mainly a popular après-ski dish. As the dish is quite hearty, it is ideal to pair with a fresh white wine or a young red wine.



Berthoud is a dish consisting of abondance cheese, garlic, nutmeg, red and white Savoie wine. This dish is made in an oven and eaten with pieces of bread or diced potatoes cooked in the skin. It is also often served with a salad and fine meats. A white Savoie wine is often drunk with this dish.
