After a taxing day on the ski slopes, many Europeans relax with warm drinks and fondue at the lodge. But you don’t have to travel far to bring that Alpine vibe to your own kitchen. This macaroni and cheese recipe is all about the molten Gruyère by the scoop, balanced by slices of fresh green apple.

For a traditional Swiss pairing, reach for Fendant, Neuchâtel or dry aromatic white wines like Pinot Gris to temper the richness of the Gruyère.
