Raclette and Fondue of the Refuge

Savoyard Raclette and fondue are unmissable dishes of the region.

Convivial, they allow to warm up while spending a nice evening with family or friends, after your day of skiing or hiking.

The raclette was invented by Swiss shepherds in the 19th century in the canton of Valais. Originally, the name was not that of "raclette" but of "roast cheese". In the Middle Ages, the way to prepare this "raclette", was to melt cheese and then "scrape" to drag the cheese on the plate. This favorite Swiss recipe has crossed the border to establish itself as a staple dish based on Reblochon farmer of Savoy.

Like the raclette, the Savoyard fondue is the main national dish of Switzerland with it is prepared since the 1950s in Savoie and Franche-Comté, with mainly Beaufort or Comté but also with the famous Tomme made in our pastures.
