5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a cookbook Feb. 28 2008
By Charles David - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Travel, cooking, and winter life in Switzerland. Excellent photography and background information. The book includes Christmas in Zürich. Also covered is the burning of the Böögg snowman during the Sechseläuten festival which symbolizes the burning of winter. The book covers everything from cheese to chocolate and includes healthy eating. I really liked the book because it had more than recipes. The photos and travelogue were very interesting. The book is both a coffee table book and a cook book.

This book has beautiful illustrations. It's exactly what I wanted. Of course the subject matter, Switzerland and its food, is always an interesting subject - such a diverse yet united country.

4.0 out of 5 stars No ordinary cookbook April 7 2013
By cowlumbus - Published on Amazon.com
Winter in the Alps is a rich collection of essays and recipes, documenting the author's personal journey to discovering Switzerland's winter culture. Whether it is Nuvolone, a cloud soufflé from Ticino, Engadiner Nusstorte, the famed walnut cake from Engadine, or Walliser Nussbrot, a nut bread from Valais, this books leaves me with a difficult decision: Whether to create these dishes from scratch or travel to each region and taste the original...
