Fribourg, gourmet cityCapital of the canton of the same name, this medieval city of bridges is also the link between the French- and Germanspeaking areas and their cultures. No fewer than eleven GaultMillau- listed restaurants are waiting to be discovered, at enjoyably reasonable prices: an impressive number for a city of just 35,000 inhabitants.
Pre-Alps: cheese and chocolateUp in the alpine meadows grazing cows polish off 100 kg of lush grass, full of wild herbs such as thyme, caraway and vanilla-scented wild orchids daily. The result is 25 litres of gloriously creamy milk every day.
When you order a coffee in the Fribourg Pre-Alps, it is often served with a small wood or chocolate container filled with double cream that drops heavy and rich from the spoon. This double crème also goes sublimely well with meringues or berries.
Nature and nourishment come together at the gastronomic level in Les Paccots. Along the gourmet trail here, in little alpine chalets, you can stop to taste the typical dishes of the region.
