Rhone-Alpes - alpine Landschaften und Flussauen

Rhône-Alpes ist eine Region im Osten von Frankreich. Zwischen den Städten Avignon und Grenoble liegt unser Lieblingsgebiet Drôme, wo sich grüne, blühende Landschaft ausbreitet. Die Region grenzt an die Provence, anders jedoch als diese Schwesterregion ist Rhône-Alpes und vor allem Drôme wesentlich weniger touristisch erschlossen, sodass es hier noch wahre Perlen an Ruhe und Tradition zu entdecken gibt. Historische Städchen wie Grignan, im Sommer umflutet von duftenden Lavendelfeldern, mit filmreifen Festungen und Altstädten machen den Charme der Provinz aus. Im Süden liegt Drôme Provençale mit seinem wunderschönen Tal der Rhône, vielen kleinen, historischen Dörfern, und verbreitet einen mediterranen Charme mit Olivenhainen und dem natürlich überall gegenwärtigem Lavendel. Im Norden verführen Städte wie Grenoble, im Westen Montélimar.

It is one of the most scenic areas of France with dense forests, lush pasture land, huge lakes, deep gorges and spectacular mountains. The French Alps, dominated by the Mont Blanc, form the border between Switzerland and Italy to the east of this region. The stunning landscape and the challenge of the peaks have long drawn climbers and walkers in the summer, and winter sports enthusiasts in the winter. Chamonix, both a ski resort and mountain climbing centre, is where the Mont Blanc Tunnel runs through the Alps to provide a direct link between France and Italy.

A traditional snack in the bistros of Lyon is “machon”, a salad of potatoes, lentils, or dandelion leaves and bacon with garlic sausage, slices of brawn, “cevelas truffé” – a lightly cured pork sausage with truffles, served with jugs of Beaujolais.Gastronomy here is  hearty and varied, drawing on local produce, onions, fruit and vegetables and a wide range of charcuterie as well as beef from Charolais, poultry from Bresse and freshwater fish and game from Dombes. Butter, cream, milk and cheese, dominate the Alpine area of the Savoy. Fish from lakes and mountain streams, game from the forests and mushrooms from the woods – a unique habitat in Europe.
The orchards are planted with cherry, apple, pear and walnut trees – and strawberries and raspberries are plentiful in the glades. Soups are made with sorrel, pumpkins, nettles or leeks, as well as with cheese. The rivers provide resources for a number of Savoyard dishes, fricassé of frog’s legs with garlic, onions and vinegar, perch with red wine, quenelles. Casseroles made with pork knuckles, sausages, stockpot vegetables and chestnuts, chicken with crayfish and gratins, using cep mushrooms, leeks, cardoons and marrows, and cheese.
