One of the decadent finds on my recent trip to Switzerland was found at an amazing organic market (Urban Bio, 19, Rue des Alpes) that I literally stumbled across while walking around Geneva a day before heading home to the United States. I typically do a bit of research prior to any trip but as the majority of my trip was in my familiar stomping ground of Montreux, I thought I would wing-it for our final night in Geneva. I have a few other goodies that I picked-up in Geneva and will be reviewing them soon. Now on to the chocolate fondant…

This was an amazingly rich and organic tart that was really more like a small round brownie. It contained just five simple organic ingredients: a buckwheat and rice flour blend; cane sugar, eggs, chocolate, and vegetable oil. While the ingredients were incredibly simple the cake itself was wonderfully complex. It had a rich, nutty, chocolate flavor that had only a very subtle sweetness allowing the chocolate to have the spotlight. It was wonderfully moist but was still dense enough to not be overly fragile – I actually threw this in my carry-on on my way home and it arrived in one piece.

So once again a great gluten-free find popped-up when I wasn’t even looking once again proving that you can get out there and, even without major planning, still navigate successfully as a gluten-free traveler. If you happen to be in Geneva, definitely stop-by Urban Bio as there gluten-free selection was truly amazing.
