How wonderful that the best Swiss game dishes are to be found in the region of Fribourg like roasted venison steak with a side of home-made egg spätzle, buttery cauliflower and delicious chestnuts. Poire à Botzi AOP, a Fribourg speciality, and, of course, a fine red wine from Vully are the perfect accompaniments. There are also French-inspired game dishes, such as wild boar, hare, duck and pheasant. In the capital, the restaurants La Clef and La Pinte des Trois Canards are renowned for their excellent game. So too are the Bel-Air restaurant in Praz on the shores of Lake Murten, the Jura restaurant in Kerzers, the Gasthof zum Schlüssel in Ueberstorf, the Buvette des Sattels in Jaun, and the Le Gruyérien in Morlon. For other restaurant ideas, it is best to ask local epicureans. Just say the magic words ‘spécialités de la chasse’ (game). Bon appétit!
