Inspired Cuisine !
Traditional savoyard dishes of the past, were based on local production and readily available ingredients : potatoes, cheese and dried meats.
Chamonix perpetuates these traditions and you may sample delicious fondues, raclettes, tartiflettes, reblochonnades and other grilled cheese dishes. Not to be omitted is the famous « farcon », a speciality made with grated potatoes, bacon, prunes, raisins, egges and cream... delicious!
Once again the advent of tourism has contributed to the diversity of culinary skills and menus and one can discover dishes from the world over (Italian, Chinese, Japanese, Indian, Mexican....), with creative restaurants marrying tradition and gastronomic skills for the pleasure of all.
