    Loved your recipes. My grandmother used to make dandelion salad. That's my fondue recipe and a family favorite. Great fun reading your travel pages.

      Dandelion salad is also typical on my side of the Alps. Double delight as it means springtime has come!

      It was like that in rural Ohio when I was little. I haven't seen it in years in this country. We've lost a lot of our traditional foods here.

    Potatoes done in both these ways are great favourites in our household. The kid sounds good, might have to try that.

    Thanks for your comments; yeah, it's always great to see places out of main season, they feel so different. We make dandelion salad here too, but throughout all year and without meat. Will try the fondue recipy one day!

    WOW! What a treat! The "Ravioles du Royans" sounds devine. For the Fondue, shall I bring a Cote de Rhone?

    Great Alpine recipes. I think, I will start with gratin Savoyard - sounds the simplest :-)

    I had to visit your page after I noted your personal motto! Like you, I travel for the food and include recipes too ( I love your fondue recipe) . I've just reviewed some gourmet restaurants in Hanoi so do take a look.
