Discover three cheeses from the Lake Geneva Region that carry the "protected designation of origin" label (AOP), along with other gourmet specialities
Jacques-Alain Dufaux, well-known as a food aficionado in this region, offers about a hundred cheeses that originate mainly from Switzerland and the Lake Geneva Region.
Pride of place in his shop window is given to three local cheeses that carry the "protected designation of origin" or AOP label – Gruyère, Etivaz and Vacherin Mont-d’Or. They are surrounded by other savoury specialities from this region such as Tomme Fleurette and Maréchal. As well as being a cheese lover, Jacques-Alain Dufaux is fond of his region's fine wines – and he claims that nothing can beat a strong Roquefort washed down with a sweet wine from the Domaine de Marcelin.
Hard or soft cheese? Made with milk from cows, ewes or goats? No matter what you prefer, you will find it at Fromagerie Dufaux. It should be mentioned that customers with the most discerning palates have crowded into this little emporium, including the actress Audrey Hepburn who was Morges' most famous resident.
