Smelly, melted cheese

Pin It

It's been pretty cold in town lately, which to a couple of my friends can mean only one thing: hot, melted cheese.  We trekked across to the Dark Side and huddled in the warm, smelly confines of the Swiss Chalet for our ritual.

I arrived very late thanks to a last-minute meeting, and the gang was already digging into their pots of fondue.  I decided to go for something else tonight.

Lozärner chügeli pastetli - this is like a simple version of a vol-au-vent, filled with cubes of veal, calf's sweetbread, onions and mushrooms in a white wine cream sauce.  Not exactly a salad... but something I'd been craving for.

Walliser Raclette mit häpperä - I wanted to eat "light", so I took the appetizer portion with just one serving of the delicious, melted cheese.

Sabayon mit beereli undeme schuss cassis - helloooo baaaaby.... it's been too long!  I'm back in the warm embrace of one of my favorite desserts - warm sabayon.  Crème de cassis, Marsala along with a pile of redcurrants, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries together with the foamy egg cream... Simply awesome.

A wonderful meal... and the whole place smelled of cheese.  Gotta love that!
