About ten years ago, I was lucky enough to spend ten months on a school exchange programme in Neuchatel, and fell beamingly in love with a nation that devotes whole supermarket aisles to the glorious business of chocolate. It's this Switzerland that Darling-Gansser conjures up so beautifully: full of laughter and family and warmth and good food, even when the weather outside blasts freezing cold snow at the bolted door. She has an irrepressibly welcoming tone, as if you were a friend sitting down at her kitchen table as she slices vegetables and tells you about a wonderful mountain inn her family discovered recently. When Darling-Gansser paints verbal pictures of starry nights in the mountains, one cannot help being enchanted by her generosity and sense of wonder at the fairy-tale quality of glowing windows in winter storms and snow.
And quite apart from the utterly magical stories and memories she recounts, the recipes really work. You can tell that they've been tested extensively to make sure absent-minded home cooks like you and me don't lose our way.Read more ›

I'm not one for buying cookbooks in general, but this book is a real pleasure to dip into - whether or not you are looking for a good recipe. Read morePublished on 26 Dec. 2013 by elimum
A wonderfully evocative book, lots of background information of various alpine areas and it's specialties. Full of wonderful personal memories!Published on 18 Mar. 2013 by Camilla Daser-Thoel
Title says it all. It is lovely as a coffee table book but I won't be rushing to make anything . Buy if you want to browse and feel cosy and seasonal.Published on 11 Dec. 2012 by L. Beekar
