Bénichon: a Tradition of Giving Thanks in the Fribourg Region.









Bénichon was originally a Thanksgiving Festival during which the farmers thanked God and blessed the harvest. Today Bénichon has mostly lost its religious connotation and has become a popular folk festival with many culinary highlights, such as “Cuchaule”, plaited bread seasoned with saffron, which is served with sweet-sour Bénichon mustard, “Pot-au-feu” or lamb ragout with “Poires à botzi” (caramelized pears), “Bricelets” (thin crisp waffles), pie with “Vin Cuit” (wine), “Meringues”, “Beignets” (apple fritters) and “Cuquettes” (flaky pastry).   For further information follow this link…
