Comté fondue is a staple on restaurant menus all over the Comté region. Eating fondue at La Petite Echelle, a mountain inn and chalet in Rochejean, is a unique experience linking food to history, tradition and terroir. The three-centuries-old inn is a stopping point for hikers and shepherds, serving traditional dishes by candlelight (there’s no electricity). The fondue, which is the highlight of the menu, combines Comté with local Jura wine, foraged wild mushrooms and local mountain herbs for a true taste of terroir. But you don’t need to be in the Jura Mountains to enjoy Comté fondue. This mouth-watering version can be mastered in any home kitchen and will give you a taste of the flavours and convivial culture of the Jura, no matter where you live!
