Dauphinoise cuisine France

Discover Dauphinoise cuisine

In the Hautes-Alpes, you can enjoy Dauphinoise cuisine with its many variations using a range of relatively limited ingredients: Dauphinois gratin (thinly sliced potatoes cooked with milk and crème fraîche), Champsaur tarts (jam tarts made with local jams), ravioli, rissole (big raviolis stuffed with cabbage, potatoes and various extras). There are very few wines, but there are many plant-based local liqueurs from the mountains, using genepy, blueberry, etc.
