Whether you are a big gourmet or not especially, there always comes a time when you have a little peckish. Take the opportunity to taste one (or more) of our specialties!
For the sweet tooth
The foyesse, a cousin of the sugar pie, is a typical recipe from the medieval city. Its brioche dough covered with cream and sprinkled with sugar makes it an ideal cake for a snack or breakfast!
The ravier and the coral of Morestel
The first is a cake that bears the name of the famous painter François-Auguste Ravier, consisting of a crunchy praline topped with an almond biscuit, chocolate mousse and sprinkled with cocoa. The second is a mixture of almonds, puffed rice, chocolate and orange that forms small bites. Both are delicious! Meet at the Aux Délices de Morestel pastry shop (291 Grande Rue) for a deliciously chocolatey sweet break.
The Vézerontinois… from Vézeronce-Curtin
The Vézerontinois is a gourmet cake made up of a crunchy praline, chocolate mousse and marzipan that you will find at the Vandroux bakery-pastry shop, in the heart of the village (96 place Clodomir).
For salty beaks
Charcuterie lovers, over here! The sabodet is similar to a cooked sausage that is often eaten with steamed potatoes.
The potato gratin
As its name suggests, gratin dauphinois is a dish… dauphinois! On the menu of many restaurants in the Balcons du Dauphiné, gratin dauphinois is a gourmet and comforting dish that accompanies both meat and fish. This is a recipe within everyone's reach: a few potatoes, cream, milk, a little garlic, salt and pepper, a passage in the oven and you're done!
