It’s What I Ate Wednesday! This week it’s all about the incredible cheeses, chocolates, breads, and more incredible foods Switzerland has to offer!
It’s the most important meal of the day, and the Swiss do it best! I don’t know what’s in the grass they feed these cows, but the milk, cheese, yogurt, etc., just taste so much richer in Switzerland. The bread is also better here–crusty on the outside, soft and fluffy on the inside. It’s worth a trip to Switzerland just for the bread and cheese!
If you’ve been following our travels for long, you may have picked up on our travel eating style. Steve and I like a hearty breakfast, a late lunch, and a light supper, usually something for takeaway from a low-key restaurant or local grocery. We really went all out for lunches in Zermatt!
A first for us: fondue that did not involve cheese of any kind! It came with hot broth to cook your raw meats in (beef, veal, and pork), French fries, rice, pickles, an assortment of sauces, and fruit for dessert.
With unprecedented snow (and avalanche warnings) altering the course of our travel days, we had to do a couple of quick “grab and go” lunches in various train stations between Zermatt and St. Moritz:
I love my treats! Who doesn’t, right? And when in Switzerland, it’s all about the chocolate. The selection was out of this world!
Who knew quiche was so very Swiss? I actually got another quiche besides what you see here, but I ate it before I remembered to take a picture!
