The region, with its strong ties to soil and local products, has a
wealth of village inns and traditional pubs to welcome visitors. With
two establishments rated 16 on the Gault&Millau scale (Le Jorat in
Mézières and la Gare in Lucens), fine food is also at hand. And it is
here that the celebrated Gruyère AOP is produced, along with many other
