Swiss Food Magazines

I thought it would be interesting and helpful for my French to buy some food magazines. However the ones I bought were published in France with French ingredients. I would welcome suggestions for Swiss food magazines/books with recipes using Swiss ingredients.

Look up www.bettybossy.ch and get the French version. She has also published a book on Swiss food/dishes typical for every region, which is available in French, German and English (poss Italian too).

Yes, agreed get Betty Bossy.

A bit OT--but I understood 'she' never existed, ie. it is a made up name from Coop. Is there a real Betty Bossy?

Also, just to add, if you have Coop points, you can use these to get the Betty Bossy subscription.

Re: Swiss Food Magazines

From the Betty Bossi article in the French Wikipedia:
Quote:
Betty Bossi est une cuisinière fictive que le fabricant suisse de margarine "Astra" du groupe Unilever utilisa pour sa publicité, devenue par la suite une maison d'édition de journal et de livres de recettes ainsi qu'une marque d'ustensiles de cuisine.
Translation (by Google with some assistance):
Quote:
Betty Bossi is a fictional cook created by the Swiss margarine manufacturer "Astra" (a Unilever product) to use in its advertising. The name later was applied to a publisher of newspaper and cookbooks and a brand of kitchen utensils.
Lots of interesting details in the article cited.
