Zermatt Food Guide

Just a bit of housekeeping before we get to the good stuff today. You probably noticed things look a little different around here today. I needed to make a new social media button and then got a little carried away. It happens.

Why’d I need to make a new button? Because I’m now on Bloglovin’! I resisted the RSS feed for a long, long time. I love visiting the actual blog and getting to see the beautiful design that bloggers put tons of effort and resources into. I feel like I get a sense of the blogger’s personality and style, and in my head, its like we are sitting in their living room chatting. {and I want you to feel the same way here!} My favorite thing about Bloglovin’ is that it looks the same as when I’m on the actual blog, only I can hit next and be taken to another fabulous blog with a guaranteed new post. I’m sure this is old hat to some of y’all, but its rocking my world today. So, if you don’t have a new RSS feed yet, give it a try and be sure to follow us!


We’ve been back from Italy for two weeks now and I am still thinking about all of the amazingly delicious food we ate. Its going to take a while to take y’all through each city, especially Rome. Oh my goodness. Rome. I thought I’d start at the beginning {a very good place to start, you know?} and work my way through the trip because the obsessive compulsive part of my brain won’t let me do it any other way. That said, we didn’t actually start our trip in Italy. We started with a trip to the Matterhorn.

Zermatt is the tiny little village at the base of the Matterhorn that is full of cute little Swiss chalets and smells like mountain air and melted cheese. Leading up to the trip, all I heard about was that we had to try raclette and that Restaurant DuPont was the place to have it. My plate came with a heaping pile of melted smelly cheese, a tiny boiled potato, a tiny sweet onion, and a tiny gherkin. As raclette goes, I’m sure it was a fine example, but it wan’t my cup of tea. Never in my life did I think I’d say this, but too. much. cheese. On the other hand, the Kiwi’s rösti {shredded potatoes with various toppings, basically classy hash browns} was delicious.

After checking lots of menus, we decided to go the non-traditional route for dinner the next night. As expected, apart from fondue, most of the traditional foods were the same as in Germany. We love that stuff, but we get it a lot. One of the Kiwi’s friends had recommended a place called the Brown Cow Pub. Specifically he had recommended the Stinky Burger. This my friends is the stinky burger. This huge burger was topped with gorgonzola, garlic, and caramelized onions.

It was strong, but oh man was it good. I strongly recommend that you convince your significant other to order it too {or at least take a couple bites} so that your breath will be equally as bad. That’s love.

If you’re interested in the museum, make sure to check the open hours. We didn’t and missed out. =(

Go hiking! We knew we wanted to go to the top of the Kleines Matterhorn, so we took the cable car up. On the way back down, though, we got off at Schwarzsee {still pretty high up} and hiked down from there on the Matterhorn trail. It was just stunning. The beginning of the trail skirts around the base of the Matterhorn so there are great views of the mountain and the valley as well.

  1. I really like your blog’s look and feel! I also had raclette once. Bt we got the cahnce to make it ourselves – which I would suggest to anyone. Then you get to choose how much of what you want. The cheese can get a bit too much.
    That burger looks fantastic! Wish I could smell it straight through my computer. I think I am hungry now!
