Bondelles: smoked whitefish

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

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!
