Food and Gastronomy in Franche-Comté are closely related to the life that once led shepherds and other inhabitants of this region of France. The traditional Franche-Comté dishes are rustic and warm and used to help these people to live in hard and demanding environments. Nowadays French gourmets benefit from traditions that have been kept alive, often for centuries.
From the Saucisse de Morteau and Saucisse de Montbéliard to the outstanding Franche-Comté cheeses, this region has a lot on offer for every French food gourmet. The traditional honey is also an absolute must.
