La ferme à Dédé in Sassenage is a great find. This place serves some of the classic dishes from the Grenoble region, from raclette to ravioles, as well as products from the terroir. I love the rustic decor with the various farm tools all other, a rustic feel that we would retrieve in the way they serve dishes.
We were there with our friend Chrystelle and celebrated with an apéritif. I decided to go with a walnut wine, the walnut from Grenoble being quite famous. I liked its taste that is very particular, but not as nutty as one may think. Served cold, with an ice cube, it was very refreshing.
With the drinks, they brought us some cornichons and some crackers.
We did not order any appetizer and went straight to the entree. I ordered the farm raised chicken with a morel sauce, dish that came in a Dutch oven with its lid on; I could not wait to lift the lid and, at that point, for the amazing smell of the dish. The smell was amazing, but the taste was even better, the chicken being perfectly cooked and moist and that sauce! It had lots of morels and I could not resist dipping bread in it. The chicken was served with a gratin dauphinois that is made with potatoes and cream. I admit that the gratin was just ok, having a bit too much garlic.
On her side, Jodi went for the Saint-Marcelin salad, Saint-Marcelin being a cow's milk soft cheese It was a big salad for sure and it had lots of cheese in it. I loved the way they served it, the salad bowl being inside a strainer.
Last was dessert that we had with an espresso. I tried the crème caramel
As well as the crème de spéculos.
Both were succulent, but I have to say that I loved the crème caramel that had a delicious thick layer of caramel that was very buttery.
This was a great meal: La Ferme à Dédé is a great spot to eat traditional French cuisine from that area, at reasonable prices. I definitely recommend it.
Enjoy (I did)!
