Specialities and gastronomy

The Savoy area is very well known for the quality and variety of its local gastronomy.  It uses mountain products such as meet, pork meats, cheeses, potatoes, corn, fruits cakes, without forgetting the Savoy wines, red or white which can accommodate perfectly the local dishes and also the fruits or herbs alcohol based (to drink moderately of course…)
