Some history

The Coregonus Fera was a deep water fish that disappeared from Lake Léman in the 1920s. Today, the term ‘féra’ is used to mean the vendace. This wonderful delicacy was reintroduced into Lakes Léman, Joux and Annecy. It can now be found on the most elegant fine dining tables thank to its delicate, firm flesh.


The tartar:

  • 600g of filet of féra
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • Salt, pepper
  • 200g of cream cheese
  • 1 bunch of chervil
  • Tarragon
  • 1 shallot


The vegetables:

  • 4 carrot tops
  • 4 pink radishes
  • 4 green asparagus spears
  • 1 courgette
  • 1 stalk of celery


The tartar: Finely dice the féra, then season: salt, pepper, olive oil and lemon. Prepare and season the cottage cheese: salt, pepper, chervil, minced shallot, chopped tarragon. Mix the two mixtures together.


To serve: Peel and cut the smaller vegetables in two. Place the tartar of féra in a bowl. Lay the crunchy vegetables evenly on top of the tartar, and serve.
