Noone should leave Savoie without having tried a "fondue savoyarde" at least once, unless you are allergic to cheese.
The fondue is melted cheese cooked with white wine in a big pan type thing. You deep pieces of bread in the pan and eat them. Note that this not a dish suitable for people on a diet. But then again, who would come to France while on a diet?
You are also meant to drink white wine with a fondue, rather than water. The main reason is the alcohol of the wine mixes much better with the cheese's fat than water does and makes the meal easier to digest.

Any good butcher in Savoie will have a selection of local dry sausage and cured ham.
What to buy: Everything. My personal favourite are the "grelots aux noix", small ball like dry sausages with walnuts inside.
What to pay: It varies widely depending on where you go and what type of sausage you buy but you can expect prices to start around 5 euro.
