To ensure that your dining experience is the best it can be, we choose suppliers, mainly local, for their history, their know-how and their personality.
 

Here are the suppliers we have the pleasure to work with.

Alpage de Chez Pépé Nicolas :

 - Dairy products: We control the whole process of cheese making: We collect the milk (manual milking for the goats, mechanized for the cows); the making (in the alpine chalet below the restaurant) and the maturing in our cellar.  

In the restaurant, we offer tommes & sérac from Vaches & Chèvres, and fresh goat's cheese.

We also use the milk from the mountain pasture to make the "Fraicheur de Lait" dessert and we produce our own cow's milk yoghurts.

- Trout from the pond: Since this winter we have decided to have our own fish. Here, what could be better than mountain trout? So we serve Farios & Rainbow trout from our pond, caught every morning by us.  

We use the "Ikejime" method, which is a Japanese technique that consists in quickly neutralizing the nervous system of the animal when it comes out of the water, so that it does not suffer. You can therefore enjoy the trout with almonds as a dish. The trout come from the MOREL fish farm, located near Ugine.

- The Permaculture Garden:  

Permaculture spoke to us a lot. We liked the method. We started work on creating this garden in the spring of 2020. We are therefore delighted to supply the restaurant with salad (mesclun), aromatic herbs (Mint, Basil, Chives, Parsley, Lovage, Tansy, Chervil, Tarragon, Thyme, Sage, Coriander, Fennel, Dill, Rosemary, Savory. .. and many others), vegetables & condiments: onions, radishes, kale, peas, peas eat everything, baby carrots, baby turnips, beets, courgettes, cardoons...

These arrive from the garden according to seasonality.

We have a multitude of edible flowers and leaves from the garden: Pansies, Chamomile, Cornflowers, Borage, Lottier, Nasturtium, mustard flowers, coriander, cabbage, chives, peas ... To your taste buds!   


In the valley :

- Honey: In the valley, we work with Klébert Sylvestre for honey who has 30 hives in the valley, some of which are near our site.

- Bread With the baker "La Grange" who makes our two types of bread (white and wholemeal with seeds) according to our specifications, as well as the artisanal ice creams with milk from a Bellevilloise farm.
