The discovery of edible plants
For this weekend, I propose you to discover edible plants. Taste the pleasure of preparing and savouring wild plants in a magical place in Vallorcine.

A good time spent together, greedy and instructive for all, young and old. I am waiting for you.

Nature is generous. She offers us immense possibilities to vary our menus, to refine our palate to new flavours, to be more sensitive to what she gives us.

May - September



Meeting at 10.00 am at the train station of Le Buet near Vallorcine. The train from Chamonix stops there and also the train arriving from Martigny and Switzerland.

After check-in in the beautiful chalet in Vallorcine and a welcome tea we will leave for 2 hours of walking ("easy" level) and picking, enjoying beautiful panoramas . Along the way, I will show you how to recognize the plants that we can eat and we will harvest some of them to prepare a small picnic 100% natural and savoyard!

Notice to the greedy people, the walk does not stop there! Indeed, we will also visit a nearby farm to learn more about the steps of local cheese making. 

Finally, we will return to the Chalet and will be able to prepare and taste a dinner made with the plants we have picked, as well as cheeses, traditional recipes from the Savoyard countries of the farm. 


We enjoy homemade bread and jam for breakfast. Then we go up to Chalet Loriaz which is beautifully situated above the tree line. We pass through different areas and the higher we climb, the more we can find and identify different plants. Today we will have lunch at Chalet Loriaz to taste the Haute Savoyard specialities. Then we will go down another path to go back down into the valley. 

At 4 p.m. we end the weekend at the train station of Le Buet.
