Food Thing

Fondue at Auberge de Savièse in Geneva, Switzerland

Switzerland's favorite après-ski meal is fondue: a pot of melted cheese that, using a long-stemmed fork, you dip bread into.

While there are delicious versions all over the world, the Auberge de Savinèse is recognized as the fondue specialist of Geneva and remains one of the best places on the planet to enjoy the dish. Different cheese combos include a 50/50 split of gruyère and vacherin and the house specialty, a mix of 80 percent gruyère and 20 percent alpine gruyère.

Have your fondue fork at the ready!
