Local flavors

Be epicurean

A preserved nature, an exceptional climateand a quality agricultural activity are the advantages of our region to cultivate the art of good things thanks to the know-how of our producers. A wealth of local products found on market stalls and showcased by many local restaurateurs.

 

Some examples :

The emblematic speciality of the region is the tourton, a tasty stuffed shoe that can be enjoyed both in salty (potatoes, meat, etc.) and sweet version (prunes, raspberries, apples).

Ravioles, oreilles d'âne (a gratin made of wild spinach leaves that, when ripe, look like donkey ears, accompanied by cream and pasta) or potato pie are also found on high-alpine tables.

Produced in integrated or organic agriculture, apples, pears, peaches and their by-products such as juices, compotes, jams, nectars, pies, etc. are also fully part of local products.
