Welcome to "le Fréti" restaurant which has celebrated traditional cheeses since 1974!
In Savoie patois (or Savoie dialect if you prefer), "Fréti" refers to someone who produces cheeses in artisanal, often cooperative workshops called fruitières. In Savoie and Jura, Franche-Compté, fruitières are where farm milk is collected to be put to production making artisanal cheeses. It is in fruitières where farmers pool the fruit of their work.
Born in these villages in the 13th century, fruitières have developed over the centuries to achieve renowned savoir-faire and efficacy.
The perpetuation of this unique, artisanal system is in part thanks to PDO sectors that are dedicated to traditional cheese elaboration from unpasteurized milk.
