Foodie Snapshots from Switzerland


This past spring my boyfriend, Joe, and I spent a week in the beautiful town of Montreux, Switzerland. In a country known for producing my two favorite loves, cheese and chocolate, needless to say, I was in heaven! As Joe and I traveled (and ate) our way through this beautiful, vineyard-filled countryside (oh yeah, they have some amazing wine there too) there are a few foodie moments that I will never forget!

Like this beautiful view of the sunset while having dinner at Relais de la Poste set among the vineyards of Lake Geneva.

Where we ate filets of Perch, Meuniere’s style and French Fries!

My favorite boutique in the historical town of Bern (the capital of Switzerland) – Confiserie Tschirren, a chocolate shop of course!

The only insect I will ever eat – a bug-shaped candy made of chocolate and almonds!

Below is a photo of Joe and I shot in front of Chalet de Gruyeres where we enjoyed the town’s traditional cheese fondue dinner.

The first course included a plate of air-dried beef, bread, pickles and onions.

Then there was the amazing cheese plate!

And a basket of potatoes for dipping!

And at a restaurant close to our hotel, we had the most amazing pizza! (Yes, that’s an egg on top!)

But of all the amazing meals we had on this trip, my favorite was one I don’t even remember – a dinner cruise on Lake Geneva where Joe proposed! Now I have another reason to love Switzerland!

    Love the pics!! I’ve had egg on a burger before (Aussie style), which was tasty, but never egg on a pizza.
