I am often inspired to bring a taste of my travels home by recreating some of the new foods I try in my own kitchen. During our trip to Switzerland, I noted a couple of dishes we enjoyed that I wanted to try here, so this week while making my meal plan, I decided it would be a great time to tackle one.

In retrospect, my Switzerland travelogue has waxed longer than I initially expected. I didn’t expect to stretch it out over four posts, but we saw so much during our time there that I wanted to give adequate coverage to the highlights.

Given our somewhat constrained schedule, we only had a couple of days to explore one part of this majestic range. It was the first stop on our whirlwind tour, but it turned out to be our favorite time of the whole trip.

Bonjour! Guten tag! You may have noticed that the blog has been a little quiet the last week or two. That’s because Bart and I have been doing some globe trotting and just got back into the states on Sunday. Now that I’m back, I’m excited to share what the Taylors have been up to.
