Re: Gifts from US for Swiss

I wouldn't bring a thing for the adults. Just make them a container of fresh pico de gallo once you get here with the recipe attached and they will go nutso.

Every year we have a party at our chalet in France for 14 juillet and I make chips and homemade pico de gallo and it is hand's down the hit of the party. The only kind of chip dip available here is Old El Paso salsa. Yuk.

Thank you for the suggestion; can I get jalapenos in CH?

I only just saw the latest suggestions in this thread - thank you! I am finally getting around to ordering gifts... I love the food gift ideas if I can handle the extra weight in my luggage: peanut butter, bourbon, fudge (messy though), maple syrup, and then fresh pico de gallo, (and guacamole?), and chocolate chip cookies.
