Light snacks or full meals, for lunch-time or evening, as a starter or a main course: the savoury recipes of Vaud are as varied as the local products they are made from! Look through our selection and give your guests a treat with dishes full of flavour and Vaudois tradition!
Whether an easy recipe or something more complex, a winter dish or a summer salad, our suggestions will satisfy your every desire! The star of Vaudois dishes, “papet” is eaten in winter. It is a leek and potato hotpot, accompanied by the unique cabbage sausage, easy to make and appreciated by everybody. When the weather is cold, you can warm up quickly with a good soup made from fish from the lake or nettles, both also easy recipes.
When the fine weather returns, you can feast on a dandelion salad to mark the arrival of spring. Cheese fans accompany their salad vegetables with a Tomme Vaudoise fried in breadcrumbs, delicious at any time of year. With good ingredients, nothing is easier to make than these light dishes!
With a little more skill, one can tackle the traditional recipes for Malakoff (a cheese fritter on bread) or Gâteau du Vully (made with cream, bacon and cumin). Enjoy your meal!
