As soon as someone mentions the Alps to me I think of two of my favourite things – skiing and food. The warming hearty fare you get served in those little quirky French mountainside restaurants is always two things – mega-expensive and utterly delicious. It’s also always just what you need when you’ve been skiing all day.
But – that would be to pretend we need an excuse to cook up these delicious dishes! There are few more satisfying ingredients than more-ish, melting cheese and we’ve got some fantastic recipes for you to try out showcasing some of the finest cheeses from the Alps.
Some of these are a little ‘funky’ like Epoisses de Bourgoigne, but do feel free to vary them to something to suit your taste. The cheeses in these recipes from www.vivelecheese.co.uk are pretty much interchangeable.
