Travel - Tomato Fondue 1      Travel - Tomato Fondue 2

Here we are at the refuge called “Relais du Mont Blanc,” just about the only place to stay in Trient, Switzerland, a tiny hamlet on our hiking trip, the Tour du Mont Blanc.  The refuge/hotel was clean and friendly but old and a bit cramped.  This tomato fondue, though, was sublime!  We shared this pot with Susan and Patricia, two hiking mates.  We were served a bowl of beautifully steamed white potatoes to go with the fondue.  It was so filling and tasty!  We asked the server how it was made and she said it was melted cheese with homemade tomato sauce along with a little beer to thin it.  Wow, that cheesy sauce over those beautiful potatoes was so hearty after a long day of hiking.  Of course, I had every intention of recreating the dish at home.  I even bought a fondue pot for it!  I will report when I get around to that!

Happy Easter everyone!
