Gourmet holidays in the Ain
The Ain is blessed with a rich culinary heritage and a huge variety of local produce. Unique cheeses like the Comté or Bleu de Gex, fine poultry from Bresse (famously the only poultry to merit its own protection of origin - AOP), or the wines of Bugey, all are on the menu. The menus are extensive and so are the opportunities to dine well: with a range of restaurants from humble brasserie to fine dining, there is something for everyone. Top of the list for gourmets is Vonnas where the chef Georges Blanc has his 3 star Michelin restaurant.
