This comforting traditional Swiss meal warms you up on the coldest of days and is a perfect meal to share with friends with a glass of white wine.

Basecamp Chef Cooking Tip

One of my favorite tools is my trusty Boy Scouts of America “Hot Pot Tongs”.  This handy little tool gives you a grip when moving hot items like grills, pots, or dutch ovens.
