Snowy Switzerland


I've been meaning to do a post on the wonderful abundance of truffles in Europe right now, and the amazing pasta I made with them, but I've been a bit of a gypsy lately, hopping around from Zurich, to Rome, back to Zurich, then to the Alps for a short weekend of complete and utter relaxation. I leave for Dublin tonight, where I'll be celebrating Thanksgiving (my first one abroad!), and then it's back to the States for me.

In the meantime, I thought I'd post a few pictures of the winter wonderland we ventured into on Saturday in the hamlet of Sporz, up in the mountains of Switzerland. We stayed at a hotel called Guarda Val, which included a beautiful spa, sauna, library, a Michelin-starred restaurant, and just 11 rooms in the whole place, all built out of a scattering of 300-year-old huts and barns. Everything smelled like wood smoke and coziness and holiday cheer, and we spent our days getting massages, drinking wine, playing cards in the library, drinking more wine, eating lots of traditional Swiss food, and not thinking too much about anything. It was bliss. Highly recommend. xo
