All the advertising and leaflets led us to believe that this 'temple' was not to be missed for any fan of fromage. As it also has a restaurant serving fondue and raclette it seemed like a chance to get some decent fermier cheese to take home, and dinner at the same time. How wrong we were. We finally found the...

A typical Savoie cheese shop and restaurant , they serve amazing cheese fondu and rack-let ,all cheese is made there , you buy the best Abondance and Tommy cheese. They also sell a great selection of jams and Marmalades.

Le Temple du Fromage isn't really a restaurant - more a performance space adjoining a great cheese shop a few miles outside Evian. I remembered coming here on an earlier holiday in the Haute-Savoie and enjoying a thoroughly kitschy experience in a packed room with local costumes, music and a huge vat of melted cheese and so insisted to my...
