Re: Swiss food in the UK...

Of course if I invite somebody, I'd make it by myself. Why is it so hard to understand that I'm just asking on help on where and how to buy Swiss products in the UK. Nothing else. Yes I can cook and yes I am Swiss. But that has nothing to do with my very reasonable question here. I'm longing for this damn Thomy mustard, Migros Kuchenteig, Coop Spätzli and Zweifel Chips, is that so hard to get?
No demand perhaps?

You can buy bratwurst made with Swiss veal here

I don't buy German chicken or port. I always buy Swiss.
Well you learn something new everyday. I didn't know German and Swiss port even existed.

But you're talking about packet potatoes.
Do Swiss people really use those packet Rösti potatoes? I thought they were sold to make it easier for us foreigners to create 'authentic' Swiss dishes. (although Rösti is really easy to make from scratch)

Some must I guess.

But then I see some of the stuff that English people crave and which is sold in the English Food shops here like Birds Custard Powder,Bisto Gravy granules and tinned rice pudding.

I guess packet Rösti is like that for some Swiss people.

That's great, I'm going to try these :-) Thank you!

@Belgianmum: Well the packet Rösti I linked is really good Of course self-made is always the most healthy and fresh, and I cook like that several times a week, but there's nothing like good Rösti or Spätzli in 5 minutes on some days where you don't want to cook from scratch.
