What you'll do

We'll meet at my place and enjoy La Raclette — a typical French meal based on melted cheese. It's a great cultural experience. You'll learn about the cheese and how to melt it to perfection (it's scientific!). We'll try a few different cheeses from the Alps, alongside French charcuterie, crispy potatoes, and some fresh vegetables. I'll host you as I would my friends and family, in a convivial atmosphere.

The experience offered by Cyril is as fun as educational. While he tells you about various cheeses and the French tradition of raclette, you enjoy melted cheese and an assortment of other natural products. The atmosphere created by Cyril around the group was nice, well-thought, and friendly. He also arranged a special selection of cheeses for the pregnant woman who participated in the experience, which I found adorable of him. Highly recommended cultural experience AND person.

A really great experience, worth testing! The cheese & wine offered were truly exceptional! On top of it, Cyril provided many details about Savoie & its products. He is the perfect host!

A gastronomic journey into the heart of the French Alps, the birthplace of raclette with Cyril as host was an authentic and highly enjoyable experience. Raclette is all about melted cheese. We tried three different kinds. The most delicious cheese came from his family's stock. The host being a native of that region of France (Savoie) where raclette is a staple told the guests personal stories about each cheese and showed the right way to eat it. Ham, boiled potatoes, pickles and fresh veggies were served as well. I had a great time. A generous treat and a story. What else one might need, right? Highly recommended.
