Restaurant
“A basement restaurant in the Hotel Alex on Bodmenstrasse. The garish stained glass mountain scenes on the walls and paisley upholstered chairs with gold frames may not be to everyone's taste, but you can't argue with the quality of the food at Hotel Alex Grill. It's rich, delicious and occasionally eccentric – there's white wine soup with dried meat; duck breast with pumpkin-mango chutney and sweet potatoes; icy Läckerli mousse, coffee ice cream and sauce of vanilla from Tahiti; plus a great range of Swiss steaks. Bodmenstrasse 12, 3920 Zermatt, +4127 966 70 70, www.hotelalexzermatt.com/catering-en/bodega-bacchus-en/bodega-bacchus/, $$”

“You want the traditional mountain gift with a touch of French elegance and sense of humour (yes, there is a French sense of humour even in our Swiss conservative old stylish Zermatt!) You want to show off with your new Après-Ski fancy hand made jumper and contemporary boho jewellery, this is why you start with treating yourself first. And then for your friends eventually if they really deserve it (cause to be honest, you would prefer to selfishly keep all those new goodies to yourself, they are so cool)... Carine is there to share her love of the mountains over and au-delà Matterhorn as she comes from the French Alps and brings the most of Cham and other places with her.”
