Hi, I had this on a recent visit to Switzerland and thought it was absolutely delicious. Worth serving regularly during the winter as it is simple and easy to make (apparently). I'm going to try it here in Spain, where it actually gets quite cold in the winter and our homes are not well insulated so we do need warming up at the end of the day.
