Pop up Bakery in the Swiss Alps

On Saturday the ski season is starting. I will pack my suitcase with my grandmas Cross Country skiing outfit (very chic) and “throw myself out in the track”, as we say in Sweden. Sometimes in between eating and skiing and visits to the Sauna I will also bake. I expect it to be happening in the middle of the night. … Read More
