Gastronomic flights of fancy
Culinary regions –
Riches of a proud region.
Food lovers looking for authentic specialities will be in their element here. From rustic, down-toearth country inns to the most sophisticated gourmet restaurants, the menus reveal a tremendous pride in regional cuisine.
Exceptional variety in a compact area.
Hardly any other area is as rich in unique local products as the Fribourg Region. Home of world-famous Gruyère cheese (Le
Gruyère AOC) and its creamy brother Vacherin Fribourgeois
(paired in equal parts for classic fondue “moitié-moitié”), the Fribourg Region also offers fine desserts, fish freshly caught in local lakes, and wines made from the sun-drenched vines. These treats can be enjoyed just as much in the rustic setting of a simple alpine inn as in one of the 28 restaurants in the region that are listed in the GaultMillau guide.
