Re: Swiss 'Fish' species racism!

Same here in Romandie. It is still traditional here to eat 'Gateau au fromage' and fruit tart, with or without 'guÍlon' on Fridays. GuÍlon is a milk, sugar and egg mix (like real custard) poured over the fruit before cooking, In our family we never had 'guÍlon' and prefered pure fruit- but then we had a big orchard, with lots of different apples, pears, plums, greengages, hazelnuts and a big strawberry patch and all sorts of soft fruits, gooseberries, raspberries, blackcurrant, redcurrant, rhubarb, etc.

We also spent autumn Sundays picking wood strawberries, wild raspberries and blueberries for the Friday tarts- and all because none of us liked fish, and especially sea fish- which we couldn't get anyhow!
