The Traditional Mountain Cooking
Savoyard cooking, the typical food from Chamonix - Mont Blanc, is based on a staple diet of cheese and potatos. Produced locally in summer and easy to store during the long winter months, plus a high calorific value, all make for a good human fuel source. With a little ingenuity the Savoyards make it taste good too.
Don't miss the pleasure of the aperitif. Every evening, people gather around in Chamonix town center or Argentière to enjoy this french 'ritual'! Chamonix, Argentière, Les Houches... all have a lot of bars where you can enjoy 'Apero' time.
