At the centre of the Leysin ski resort in the Vaud region Alps, La Fromagerie is an authentic site for tasting typical Swiss dishes, learning about cheese-making over a wood fire and inspecting a collection of objects from days gone by in the chalets dotted all over the region’s Alpine pastures.
A vast 17th century rustic chalet fronted by a giant wooden cow. No mistaking the Fromagerie de Leysin! La Fromagerie accommodates both individuals and large groups or corporate trips in its traditional wooden décor. Try some typical Swiss cuisine – cheese, of course, but also other delicious dishes – all washed down with regional wines, starting with the chasselas offered on every table at aperitif time.
More than just a good place to eat, La Fromagerie reveals all the secrets of life in the Alpine pastures. On the second floor explore an exhibition of artefacts associated with that simple rustic lifestyle. Rare objects also evoke winter sports in the region. But above all, it is the demonstration of cheese-making over a wood fire, held in the evening several times a week, which the delighted guests take home as an unforgettable memory.
