Exploring Europe at lunch time

Jump to last reply

My teenage daughter is going to be traveling to Europe with a group of students. She will be visiting Switzerland, Austria, France, Germany, and Italy over the course of about 2-1/2 weeks. Their breakfast and dinner meals will be taken care of, but they are on their own for lunch.

The trip organizers said that they will encourage the students to eat like the locals...stop and buy some cheese and bread at a local shop or stand. I think that would be great. But, I know my daughter would be very intimidated and not know what to purchase.

I'd like to start introducing her some different types of cheese...other than the typical cheddar and mozzarella she is used to! Any suggestions on what to start having her try so that she will feel a little more "prepared" when she gets to Europe?
