Where to eat in Megève, France
Tucked away in south-eastern France is Megève – an Alpine town that’s known for skiing. But there’s something louder than the sound of skis carving the snow these days – the sound of bubbling reblochon cheese. It’s everywhere.
The iconic cheese of the region is mild and nutty with a semi-soft texture – it’s I-want-to-eat-it-all-the-time good. Each morning the hotel had a spread of it on the breakfast buffet. At lunch the mountainside bistros served it up by the wheel (OK, not really but they may as well have). It was inevitably involved in every dinner and I always had a chunk for dessert. Believe it or not, I also ate some other fantastic food that didn’t involve cheese.
Here’s what I ate in 36 hours in Megève.
What a fondoozy. I ate this mammoth spread on the first day of skiing. The restaurant, located at the bottom of the Chatuley run, serves up a mean fondue made with ceps and served with bread and a seriously tasty salad. Why do salads always taste better in France? They’re the same leaves, yet they taste so much better across the channel. Anyway, I digress, the name of this restaurant escapes me but the good news is: gorgeous dishes like this are around every corner on the slopes of Megève.
