Enjoy Local Swiss Produce during you Self-Catered Ski Chalet Stay
When staying in Verbier or le Chable during your Swiss ski holiday, it would be a shame not to try the outstandingly, mouth-watering local produce on offer throughout the year! Making the most of your self-catered ski chalet stay, whether it be on or off season, should include trying the delectable delights which many snowsport enthusiasts indulge in after a long, adventurous day on the slopes.
So come with us and explore the local Swiss produce on offer to tantalise your taste buds, from breakfast to midnight snacks!
The Cheesiest of Swiss Cheeses!
As Verbinet explains: “A favourite dish in Verbier mountain restaurants, the exact [fondue] recipe will vary according to their own personal touches. A typical cheese fondue is a concoction of a variety of local cheese (often reblochon, gruyere, comte, beaufort or emmental), a little garlic and seasoning, a glug of alcohol (kirsch, white wine, or some local liquor) and a bit of flour for thickening.”
Accompanied with locally baked breads from bakeries such as Patisserie Aux Croquignoles, or fresh fruit and vegetables for sweet and savoury options, swiss cheese should be eaten with only the best ingredients. Why not match these beautifully made cheeses with the perfect bottle of local red wine, in front of the fire during the cold ski season evenings? Take a look at the Laiterie de Verbier for a full selection of finely made cheeses for collection or delivery to your Verbier ski accommodation. With our self-catered chalet stays you can wine and dine like royalty for the fraction of the price and you won’t be disappointed!
The Freshest of Locally Reared Meats and Fish
It’s got to be said that the cheese made in Switzerland is the pinnacle of the country’s cuisine. However, don’t let that lead you astray, as there is a plentiful amount of grass-fed beef and fresh-water fish to be had! Take a look at some of the meat and fish dishes to try out with your family and friends during your seasonal chalet experience in Verbier this year!
Appetiser / Snack
- Bundnerfleisch is a delicacy in Switzerland’s eastern mountains and is essentially air-dried beef, but it’s not just any ‘air-dried beef’! The traditional recipe includes a 10 to 15 week drying period in the crisp, fresh Alpine air, meaning that you get the true taste of Switzerland with every mouthful. You can find this beautiful product in any local deli in the Verbier area and can be accompanied by pickles and, of course, cheese and wine!
Lunch / Dinner
- Saucisson Vaudois is a speciality in the Lake Geneva region, close to Verbier and Le Chable. The sausage is often eaten with beans and bacon, or potatoes and leek, but anything goes! Simply cooked in boiling water for 45 minutes, it’s a typical eastern European delicacy enjoyed by many in the region.
- If you are looking for an adventure away from the slopes during your Verbier ski holiday and you want to try some locally caught fish and integrate with the locals, then why not head to the Three Lakes region of Lake Geneva, Lake Neuchatel and Lake Biel? Here you can try and buy whitefish, perch or trout to take back with you to your chalet for an evening supper.
