Cardinal: innovative beer ideas

Cardinal has always been an innovative brewery: when the pope presented the Cardinal of Fribourg with his red hat in 1890, the brewers created a celebratory beer called "Cardinal". The same delight in innovation characterises the brewery to this day, as witnessed by new creations such as Cardinal Eve. Anyone interested in experiencing more such creativity should visit the Cardinal Museum: tastings included.

Bénichon: a gourmet work of art

The Bénichon is the traditional thanksgiving festival in the Pays de Fribourg, celebrated with the classic Bénichon meal: a gastronomic work of art that encompasses no less than eight courses and more than 30 creations. Whole families gather for the occasion, eating and drinking from lunchtime until late at night. The Bénichon menu is also served at many restaurants.

Gâteau du Vully: sweet or savoury

The celebrated Gâteau du Vully is produced around Mont-Vully near Murten. A yeast-based dough is topped with plenty of cream and sugar; there is also a savoury version, with bacon and caraway seeds. This tastes superb with a wine from the region: a Gewürztraminer, Riesling-Sylvaner, or a Fribourg wine from Mont-Vully.
