Bonjour from France: Winter Edition

French Skis
and French Cheese

This year, I took two of my girls to go skiing in France! They’ve never skied there and I have not skied the Alps in 20 years. We usually go to Copper Mountain…. but we wanted to get a real French Experience!
After a short stay in Lyon, my hometown, we took a train to Les Arcs in the Alps to meet my sister’s family at the ski resort where we hit the slopes! It’s too soon to give you a proper French-American comparison yet.
As you can see, apr├Ęs ski led us to their favorite Cheese and Charcuterie shop La Grange Berger. We got everything we needed from cheese to charcuterie to herbal tea, and dined on a Raclette, a typical dish you have when you’re in the mountains of France. Man, I miss cheese!
We also got wild blueberry tarts that were divine. This is a typical treat from this region and probably the best one I have ever had!
I really want to share this delicious tart with you in Colorado Springs… I think we may try it in Sweet Tarts 2 first with our new Pastry Chef Instructor Nate!
Should we add it to our Bakery menu?
If you followed my trip to France in September, you’ll see I have already enjoyed my favorite cheese again, Reblochon… just had to!
That’s it for now!
