Gandeuillot and other cooked meats

Luxeuil ham is the pride of Luxeuil, but Fougerolles is not to be outdone with other delicious recipes!

Gandeuillot is a typical product of the southern Vosges: it combines pork meat (like sausage) and tripe (like andouille), a hybrid speciality that has everyone in agreement! Of course, the recipe also includes a dash of Kirsch AOC!

It's impossible to miss our neighbours' speciality: Andouille du Val d'Ajol, which is celebrated every year on the 3rd Monday in February, and the weekend before.

Say Cheese !

Munster AOC

Who said that Munster cheese was exclusive to the Vosges and Alsace?

The Munster AOC production area actually covers 7 départements, as far as Haute-Saône and Territoire de Belfort. An AOC recognised as far back as 1969!

In our tourist region, Munster is produced at Saint-Bresson at the Menigoz farm, where almost 300 cheeses pass through the hands of the cheese-makers every day.

Do you know the cumin version? This is the only authorised variant for making Munster cheese. Cold or hot, it can be enjoyed in a thousand different ways. What's your favourite?

Absinthe, the other brandy from the Southern Vosges

Refreshing and mysterious, absinthe comes in a hundred different recipes, each distiller adding his own touch and secrets. A magical blend of distillates for flavour and infusions for colour, the absinthe is intriguing and is drunk in a very special ritual.

In 1914, 55 000 hectolitres of absinthe were produced in Fougerolles. Since 16 March 1915, when absinthe was banned, many aniseed-flavoured drinks have been produced.
