Sunday hike in Switzerland - from Langenthal to Melchnau - scrollathon..

Green fields and rolling wheat…..

 A gentle meander through rolling farmland and pine forests, a walk in the Oberaargau from Langenthal to Melchnau – it was a very hot day – and this being  a farming environment the restaurants are not afraid of cream in very copious quantities – this is not the place to ask for gluten-free nor lactose free, nor soya anything. 67 more words

Newly invented poire belle helene - and if the word existed we say poire "beller" helene, as in more beautiful, but of course the recipe is in fact poires belle Margot with many spices and a soupcon of chocolate in a moreish pudding, add some cream or icecream and let yourself be transported to planet Margot - where the food is divine, the company is relaxing and somebody else in that kitchen pampering you. Congrats Margot.
