The dining options in the French Alps are as varied as the skiing itself, whether it’s a fast and filling mountain top lunch, traditional après-ski dinner or haute cuisine you’re looking to enjoy. We’d recommend looking out for the regional specialities (naturally). Tartiflette is one of the most well known Savoyarde dishes, a gratin comprising of reblochon cheese, potatoes, onions and lardons. It’s simple, filling and utterly delicious.
Raclette is a brilliantly sociable alpine meal with cheese, once again, taking the starring role. Grilled at the table and served with potatoes, pickles and cured meats. Perfect to share with friends as you also share your stories of that day’s adventures on the piste.
It’d be rude not to complete your meal with a traditional digestif and ‘le genepi’, a traditional herbal liqueur, is the order of the day in many French restaurants and bars across the Alps. Just don’t exceed the drink-ski limit!
