The most wonderful time of the year

4 Oct

You might be thinking that this post is about Christmas. You’d be wrong. I am definitely not the type of person to be already counting the days until Christmas.

For me the most wonderful time of the year is when the outside temperature is cooling and the dark nights are drawing in. Because that can only mean one thing. It’s Raclette and Fondue season. Cheese is as Swiss as the Matterhorn and Toberlone and, since becoming a Swiss Miss, I am a big fan.

I’m so pleased that it’s that time of year again and I have wasted no time in tucking into the cheese. Of course, you can have Raclette and Fondue in the summer but only tourists really do that. Plus, it is far too hot to be eating melted cheese when it’s 20-plus degrees outside because you end up melting yourself.

To begin with I wasn’t too sure about just eating melted cheese and bread for dinner but I could eat easily eat it for breakfast now.

Apart from my obvious cheese addiction, there are other downsides to this time of year. If you are not careful, the apartment ends up constantly smelling strongly of cheese that lingers for days irrespective of how long you leave the windows open. You end up getting so used to the smell that you only realise how back it is when you come back home and smell how bad it is.

Therefore, it’s always best to be invited to someone else’s house or a restaurant to avoid nasty odours at home. Or you could do what we did and brave the colder temperatures and sit outside!

    First time I ate Fondue was in the winter, in Zurich, for dinner. It was delicious but felt like a stone in my stomach. I think I overdid it!

      It’s easy to overdo it when it tastes so delicious!
