Warm Comfort for Frosty Winter Days

The Mediterranean diet has its place, but when the temperatures plunge and the wind whistles, it’s the hearty cuisine of the Alpine regions that comes with the guarantee of warmth. These wonderful recipes, created by former delicious. food editor Lizzie Kamenetzky for her new book, offer the perfect excuse to gather friends, cosy up and spread a bit of good cheer

"I learned to ski from a young age and I’ve been lucky enough to spend many happy holidays in the mountainous regions of Europe and beyond. I confess to being besotted with the way of life there – but more than anything I love the food. These are places for enjoying long schnapps-filled lunches and relaxed, laid-back dinners with friends and family, as the snow falls quietly around and time ceases to matter. It’s that real, honest food, the winter fare of snowy Alpine regions, that these recipes celebrate. It’s hearty food for cold days, full of flavour and warmth. I hope you’re inspired to cook these wonderful dishes in your own kitchen. "

ALPINE PANCAKE

Kaiserschmarrn

SERVES 6-8. HANDS-ON TIME 40 MIN

"Although simple in its ingredients, this classic Austrian dish tastes rich and indulgent (its name means ‘emperor’s mess’). A deep, fluffy pancake is filled with boozesoaked raisins, shredded, then dusted in icing sugar and served with a tart fruit compote. Although this is really a sweet dessert, in the Austrian Alps it’s often eaten as lunch."
