Gâteau du Vully: sweet or savoury

Fribourg Region – 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.

Bondelles: smoked whitefish

Fribourg Region – A speciality from Lake Neuchâtel is the bondelle, a native species of whitefish, which is smoked according to ancient recipes. There is also a great tradition of fishing on Lake Murten, where there are still fishing families. Other delicacies here include pike and perch fillets: most memorably enjoyed on a terrace with views of the lake.

Meringues & whipped cream: the dream partnership

Fribourg Region – What could be nicer than meringues and whipped cream from the Gruyère region? Often they are served with fresh berries, making a heavenly threesome - crispy, creamy and fruity all at the same time. Traditionally, the meringues are baked in a wood oven. The double cream is brought to the table in artistically carved little wooden jugs. This is traditional Fribourg culinary culture!

Rissole aux poires: fruity and sweet

Geneva Region – These pastry cases filled with pear compote are a Geneva speciality, traditionally prepared at home by families over the Christmas period. For the filling, a special variety of pear is used – the poire à rissole – which makes these treats especially fruity, juicy and sweet.
