3 hours (or less) from Paris: Tasting Alsace #3




Alsatian fare, generous and invigorating, is essentially a cold weather cuisine, much like the rich fondues and fromage-charcuterie planches of the French Alps.

Above: modern twist on a childhood favorite, Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte; succulent fresh fish choucroute 

Below: potato-ham-mushroom-onion gratinée topped with Munster cheese (the town of Munster is a short drive via a scenic wine route); a village street
