Grand Hôtel des Rasses stars

St. Croix / Les Rasses


Just follow your nose: Truffles may be treated like gold, but they are far more appetising and accessible: in fact Switzerland’s most prized and costly truffles grow just below the surface of the earth in the canton of Vaud. Finding them is an art – one you can learn with the help of a professional forest ranger. On a four-kilometre walk, you find out all about the knobbly fungus as a truffle dog tries to sniff out the treasured quarry. Who knows, you may even strike lucky yourself. You’ll certainly have a taste: the exclusive truffle menu at the Grand Hôtel des Rasses makes a delectable conclusion to this gourmet autumn adventure.
