The Summer Summary

It’s hard to imagine that in a couple months time we’ll be covered in snow again. What a great summer we’ve had in Tignes. The terrace has been bustling under the alpine sun and the ice cream sundae’s have been flying out.

Whether you’ve been in and out all summer or just a quick visit we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support. We’ve managed to build on the success of last winter and continue to receive great feedback whilst having a blast at the same time.

For anyone who didn’t manage to stop by this summer, maybe you’re still interested in what’s been going down in cheese town.
In addition to the usual suspects from the winter grilled cheese menu we chose one of the more summery specials to stick around. This was the Moroccan inspired chickpea, red onion and feta sandwich. A refreshing mix with the addition of black olives and lemon, glued together of course with our gooey 5 cheese house blend. Sounds almost healthy!

We also thought we’d try our hands at the burger game. Covering all bases, we had a classic beef burger, a chicken fillet burger and a veggie falafel burger, all served with delicious crisps and a crunchy salad. For our gluten free and vegan friends (not exclusively of course) we offered a spicy falafel salad served on a crunchy salad with a sweet tangy dressing.

It’s not all been slaving over a hot grill here at La Cantine, we’ve been out and about all over the place enjoying the mountains. Camping trips to lake Annecy, concurring the Via Ferrata, stalking the Tour de France, endless BBQ’s and lakeside activities.
We’re actually all fitter than ever and totally ready to get the ski’s and boards back on.
Roll on winter, more grilled cheese and who’s know what?!?
