Planning and cooking for a week

Alp Heuboden

The Oberstafel on Alp Heuboden, the highest pastures, can only be reached by foot, which is a logistical nightmare. Especially when around 10 people have to be fed every day. And provisions have to be brought up by helicopter.

This requires a lot of planning, ...and cooking. Since Fritz and Anna Tschudi have given the reigns to their son Peter, it's his wife Annelies that is in charge. So she has to buy food and cook meals for a whole week. On Tuesdays everything is packed and made ready for the chopper that brings the goodies the next day to the Oberstafel. On return the help transports the wheels of cheeses down to the chalet where they then are brought to the Glarona Cellars per car.
