Meal #72: Dinner

Another regional speciality. Note: all regional specialties include oozy, melty cheese. Fondu!

Annecy was exceptionally beautiful! Unfortunately, we had a rough drive home. We missed a few turns and the one hour drive became a three hour drive through winding mountain roads. We were low on gas, but our card wouldn’t work at the gas station – fingers crossed, we continued the journey. We were about thirty minutes from home when first and second gear quit engaging! Thankfully Adam is an excellent driver and was able to drive up steep mountain roads in third gear – ridiculous!

After the white knuckle drive up the mountain I was in no mood to prepare a full meal. I kept it simple. I put some cornichon in a bowl, cut up some bread and sausage, and melted some local cheeses (Beaufort, Emmental, Gruyere) with wine (Apremont), Kirsch, and mustard. Voila! Super fatty, tasty, melty fondu dinner! 🙂

 

P.S.

Kellie, someday you will visit Europe and when you do, you must visit Annecy. I think you will love it! 😉
