.... and here is the second of the infamous Rappi Bier Factory all day Ploughmans lunches for this year.

If you haven't been before, the Rappi Bier Factory brews just about the best beer in Switzerland (and officially the best Black Bier in the whole of Europe).

The British Cheese Centre will bring along up to 15 farm made British Cheeses to complete the ultimate Ploughmans Lunch, cheese with salad, pickle, chutney, crusty bread etc. The spectacular Chilli Pickled Eggs may also make a comeback and there will no doubt be some sweet offering too.

Price of the lunch is CHF 19.00 but you can come just for the beer or a small cheese tasting plate. Beer and cheese is of course on sale to take home.

Here's the thread from the first one last year, only 60 signed up from here but we had over 100 in all, this year we will be better prepared for the rush. There's also some great photos of the mid summer one here that did get rather wet...... but we did enjoy ourselves anyway. (thanks weejeem for the pics)

There are 2 more for this summer on the 28th May and 17th September, I wonder how many of you will go for the Hat Trick?

Great evening.

Shame about the cheese.

And the drink to be honest.

The company wasn't too hot either and did you see those cupcakes?

Come to think of it; it sucked big time really.

.....like whatever, I vote SVP, so whaddya all care anyway?




(And just being me for a second, it was all good and Grumpy and the crew rocked!)
Well, some people were pretending their nurse was their daughter, lol. She was a very nice nurse and gracious to us old Gruftis...

Argus and I made some lovely cookies and Crumbs some delicious muffins, here are some pictures of my cookies THANKS to Crumbs for providing materials
Thanks for the pics - I just gobbled mine, not thinking of taking a photo!

...and, having a 2-hour train ride back to Basel, I left a little early and FORGOT TO BUY CHEESE! Aargh!

So looks like I'll have to come to the next one. (sigh)
