Well I spent an incredible 3 months in Europe and along with a million awesome experiences I also collected many new favorite foods. So I’m going to be sharing some of them and my best attempts to recreate them.

First is this Züpfe bread which I first tasted in Wald, Switzerland. I was there on a sort of work exchange program where I helped a woman repaint old furniture in exchange for food and housing. She was so wonderful and loved introducing me to delicious Swiss foods.


I made a tiny Züpfe with the leftover dough.

I’ve never actually baked bread before, but this was really fun and it turned out really well. We ate it on Thanksgiving along with the chocolate pie below.
