Travelblogue: Continental breakfast in bed


It’s a true blue white Christmas in Germany and cold enough to chill your bubbly in 20 mins… so obviously a wonderful time to be snuggled indoors with breakfast in bed.

With all thoughts of calorie counting out the window, I’ve been indulging in huge breakfasts of delicious German bread, pretzel and lots of German, Swiss and French cheeses from a local gourmet cheese shop, Fromagerie Holzapfel which sells wonderful regional and artisinal cheeses


TO MATCH THE WINTER LANDSCAPE:

Snowy white, fresh cream cheese with spring onion, topped with a slice of sundried tomato on crusty sunflower and sesame seed wholemeal bread. The onions give it a refreshing bite that’s nicely rounded by the tomato’s sweet tang.

ARTISINAL ARTISTRY:

Wildblumen Käse or Wildflower Cheese. The fruity tang of the cheese is set off beautifully by the herbiness of the dried wildflower rind.

AND IN THE STINKY SECTION:

Warning…nosepegs not included… A triple cream Brie de Meaux  and a runny, extremely pungent Rochebaron.

LIFE IS SWEET WITH MY FAVOURITE:

Gruyere.

This one had been matured in a cave and has a full ripe flavour. It got all gooey when melted into an omelette with carmelised onions.

Been nibbling all the lovely cheeses and drinking my bubbly while writing this post. Time to fill my tummy with something a bit more substantial – ham and eggs – the breakfast of champions!
