Anticipating Alpine Adventures

It’s that time of year again when I’m looking forward to heading off to The Alps for some skiing and some good eating and drinking too! This year I’m excited to be visiting to Switzerland, here’s what I’m looking forward too the most…

Cheese for Breakfast!

Why is this only a thing in Europe? We just don’t do cheese for breakfast over here do we? So I’m looking forward to hotel breakfasts featuring cheese and croissants.

Fondue

There I go with the cheese again (although more often than not I’m out voted and end up with a meat fondue). This year, I’m insistent that a delicious pot of molten cheese is happening!

Rösti

A traditional Swiss Rösti is top of my list for lunch. It’s carb-a-licious, being made mostly from potatoes, it’s hearty and delicious too though and I can’t wait for my first plateful this year.

Gluhwein

Christmas may be over, but the hot spiced wine drinking doesn’t have to be. I actually feel like I didn’t drink enough mulled wine this Christmas (very poor effort!) – so I’ll be making up for lost time and enjoying a traditional Guhwein or two when I can.

Hot Chocolate

It just tastes better out in the cold, surrounded by snowy mountains. Comforting sweetness, the smell of cocoa and breathtaking views…a hot chocolate on the slopes is high on the list of simple pleasures on a ski holiday.

Tartiflette

Possibly more French than Swiss, I’m not 100% sure on its origins but am sure it’s 100% divine. This cheesy, potato filled dish is pure heaven and I hope to tuck into some soon.

Have I made you hungry? The cold conditions in England right now make all of the above dishes totally appropriate to enjoy at home too I think…
