Local Cuisine

Valdostan Fondue

To call it heavenly is not to do it justice. Substantial yet delicate, fondue is ideal for warming yourself up during freezing Alpine winters. Simple, high-quality ingredients: PDO fontina cheese , butter, milk, stale bread and egg yolks. Served in small, terracotta dishes with a final sprinkling of white pepper, fondue is a sine qua non of a high-altitude holiday.

Greichen

In Dolonne, near Courmayeur, a favourite dish is greichen, a typical egg-based dessert garnished with raisins. Together with black bread, it is very much a symbol of the local identity.

Genepì

An unforgettable liqueur, genepì is made using Alpine herbs that flower at high altitudes, such as glacier wormwood and black wormwood. It has a unique flavour and, when sipped at the end of the meal, is an excellent digestif.

Teteun

Teteun, meaning “udder” in the local dialect, is a wonderful, local cured pork that is eaten as an antipasto. It is prepared using the udders of local cows, preserved in brine with spices and flavourings, and then cooked.
