Food and Travel
Today I'm introducing a new feature on this blog: Plate to plate. One recipe, two people. This is the first of a bimonthly column.
Earlier in September we walked 23 km of country roads and trails through forests and apple orchards to the Swiss Historic Hotel in Oberstammheim.
After a very inspiring conference, making new acquaintances and seeing old friends, we went on to enjoy Winchester's history and explore the nearby countryside.
Every change of seasons has me looking forward to new fruits. We are in the transition between summer and autumn and there is plenty to choose from.
A few days ago we passed a stand which was selling produce and we stopped to see what was being offered. The beautiful and bright peppers caught my eye.
I eat a lot of salad, varying ingredients according to the season. In Summer I particularly like to add berries, going for a sweet-savory taste.
Our summer has been rainy and cool but when we do get a dry and sunny day, we like to spend it outdoors.
Founded in 1201, the historical center is an UNESCO World Heritage Site and Riga is the European Capital of Culture 2014.

When the first of our gooseberries ripened, I knew I wanted to try making ice cream with them.
