Time Out says

Join the resident cheesemaker in making the locale’s signature Le Chalet cheese at this restaurant.

This village near Gruyères has an attraction sure to entice any fondue fan: cheesemaking! Join the cheesemaker in making the locale’s signature Le Chalet cheese in a cauldron over an open fire. A lot of stirring is involved, but once it’s fermenting (at a strict 32°C), it’s time to tuck into the fondue – a classic Vaudois moitié-moitié (half-half ) of Chalet and l’Etivaz cheeses. The event concludes with you hauling 10kg of cheese into a mould, which then cellars for four-to-six months.
