Eating my way through speed week in Val d’Isere, France-Dec. 2010

My week on the speed side in Val d’Isere did not yield the ski results I was hoping for but I did get a chance to do some research down another avenue.  I call this entry “eating my way through Val d’Isere” because my teammate and roomie, Chelsea, and I spent our off time this past week getting ideas from the French for the bakery we hope to open someday in the future.

It all started with Crepes!

Chocolate and raspberry turned out to be my favorite flavor, although ham and cheese came a close second!

By the end of the week, our friend, the owner of Val's Crepes, knew us by name!

After Crepes we went to the local Chocolatier and pastry shop to check out their selection!


The night before the super g race it dumped a meter of snow causing the race to be cancelled so I couldn’t resist the urge to burn some of the french calories powder skiing!

We ended the week trudging through the newly fallen snow to get my favorite meal……cheese fondue!

I hope everyone has the three “f’s” over the holidays: friends, family and good food!  Merry Christmas!
