La Thuile at the table, food and wine specialties

If you are a lover of good food then La Thuile will not disappoint you! Valle d'Aosta can boast a highly respected culinary tradition, the result of years and years of traditions and small agricultural productions of high value.

Here you can still find the genuine flavors of the past, the cheese has a real flavor, that of milk without the industrial works that destroy its quality; a piece of fontina is enough to immediately understand what we are talking about.
Fontina is produced according to a rigorous disciplinary which, in addition to providing for a production limited to some specific valleys, requires that the milk is from red and black spotted cows from Valle d'Aosta (only 2 Italian regulations provide for the bond of bovine breed).
The milk not only gives life to fontina but also to an excellent butter, an excellent ricotta and "la Brossa", a dairy product with a similar appearance to yogurt derived from the residual whey of cheese processing; excellent to pour over hot polenta.

On the table, cheeses are always accompanied by excellent cured meats, such as mocetta or the fantastic lard (with an incredible flavor), the Aosta Valley sausage or the more particular boudin (sausage with beetroot).

The typical dishes are as diverse as the soup with black bread and cabbage, the excellent game, the desserts and the inevitable mountain herb distillate known as genepì.
