When visiting my family in France, there is always something bothering me more than anything else: restaurants’ hours. A lot of them are closed on Sundays and/or Mondays and in fact, few where we wanted to go to were unfortunately closed. But thanks to the internet, we found few options and this is how we ended up at La Ferme a Dédé close to the train station. We knew this place as we tried one of their restaurants a couple of years ago and I was raving about their farm raised chicken with morel sauce.
I love the decor there that is supposed to represent a farm, quite rustic, as is the presentation of the food. We were surprised to see the restaurant that full on a Sunday evening, but it was because they had a large group of tourists, probably 40 people and it definitely disrupted a bit the service as all their burners were used for them. However, they were quite upfront about it and we decided to stay. We started the meal with an apéritif, a tradition in France to start with a drink before a meal. Jodi got an orangina soda, while I got their walnut wine (vin de noix) that I can only find in that area and love as its taste is particular.
Then, Jodi ordered the Saint-Marcelin (cheese) salad that was quite big and had lots of cheese.
On my side, I went for the chicken with morel sauce. It was fantastic: the farm raised chicken was perfectly cooked, a bit moist and that sauce, that had pieces of mushrooms, was succulent.
With it came a gratin Dauphinois that is potato au gratin, with lots of cream. Delicious!
We did not get dessert as it was extremely hot in the restaurant, because there was no A/C and lots of patrons ordered fondue...
Overall, I like La Ferme à Dédé: the food is good and rustic, with reasonable prices.
Enjoy (I did)!
