when i was writing this, i was sitting in the sun, surrounded by the mountains of lauenen, gstaad. we were spending a week there, in an old house, enjoying the art of slow living by sleeping late (as late as possible with two kids), eating, hiking, and playing. we love this spot, where we spent two summers working and living on an alp (see also our exhibition ALPSOMMER, which resulted from our first stay here in 2014), and where we now came back to spend our holidays. it's an unique place, and we especially love the fact that it's secluded. at the end of the valley, before the mountains start to rise, you find the famous LAUENENSEE - another gem!
returning from our holidays, we somehow lost ourselves in a happy end-of-holiday-and-back-to-school chaos, and here we are, two weeks later... and as routine kicks in again, i finally find time to share this. the recipe below (in german) is from a book called ALPECHUCHI, written by martin bienerth - a book dedicated to stories, observations, and products coming from the alp, illustrated by many lovely photos made by the author. the pie is a blend of some of the best products autumn has to offer: potatoes, pears, and cheese. add a green salad and a glass of wine, and you have a perfect meal for a cosy autumn evening.
