cheese   ;-) - Annecy

cheese ;-)

eat some cheese

one of the speciality of the region is cheese so if you like it try:
"la raclette" which is a melted cheese on new potatoes acompanied of saucisson, ham and salad.
"la fondue savoyarde" which 4 or 5 different kind of Comte cheese and white wine ( it eaten using some small fairly dry bread peaces that you put on a fork and use it to get some melting cheese around)
try le "roblochon" cheese or la"tome de savoie"
and there is also le tartiflette .............so much for the cheese lover.....................

la grolle

la "grolle" is an hot alcohol drink made of whisky with freshly squizzed oranges and lemons and is drunk from that funny looking pot which has a few holes. it s really warming after a day skiing, try it but careful it can be really strong .....eventhough my friend seems to enjoy it on this picture!!!!!!!!
