Local products

Thanks to our local newspaper for this article published on 22 June, 2019. They support our action "Gardons le moral, consommons local" which is one of our multiple ways to promote seasonal and local products that we cook at our restaurant, and that are on sale at L'Épicerie d'Arnay (opposite our restaurant), our partner in this campaign. We have great farmers and producers all around Arnay: thank you to all of them.
