Papet vaudois: a crafty creation

Potatoes, leeks and a tasty pork-and-cabbage sausage: that's papet vaudois, the favourite dish of residents of the Lake Geneva Region. According to legend, this delicacy was created in the village of Orbe more than 1,100 years ago. The locals had insufficient meat to feed the king and his entourage who were passing through, so they added cabbage to the sausages to make the meat go further. The king was impressed – and the villagers had created a unique dish.

Only a handful of confectioners are permitted to produce these cork-shaped sponge delicacies. Their filling comes as a surprise: the finest almond praline mass. Their name is a wordplay that refers both to their form, in the shape of a cork (French: "bouchon"), as well as to the French word for mouth ("bouche").
