Garlic Powder in Luzern...

Where can I buy it?!

Also, almond meal, if anyone knows, though it's not as important.

Many thanks!

If you had stopped and thought for a second, you'd realise that any Coop and Migros sell it

Ditto for the almond meal.

Re: Garlic Powder in Luzern...

Many, many moons ago when I first came here, I happily used Knoblauch in lots of dishes. It was several years before I found out that this was GARLIC - only mentioned at home in my youth in connection with 'FOREIGNERS' and only available is SPECIALISED shops where one could also by SPAGHETTI for real and not in tins in tomato sauce. I kid you not.

This reminds me of the introduction to one of Elizabeth David's cook books (my guess is the Italian Cooking one) where she compares food shopping in post war England to that in Italy.

Yes, welcome back too!

I was thinking of you the other day when we did one of your GPS-Hikes posted here, with the kids, by popular demand, for the third time!

Back to garlic...

Ah memories.

I cooked spaghetti with tomato sauce tonight.
But proper home-made sauce with onion, garlic, thyme, olive oil, mozarella, pizza herb mix, and sherry.

Re: Garlic Powder in Luzern...

Lacks all the good DIY spirit: knitting bath towels, drying and grinding garlic, deliver a letter yourself, or just slaughter a cow.
