Whatever it is, tell them it's chicken. We all know everything tastes like chicken. Strange I have never seen pheasant in the Migro, .
I've bought it from Globus and Jemoli before and if you are lucky, Oerlikon market will have some watercress.

Re: Cooking for Swiss family...what to make?

If you do a roast chicken, the secret is to roast it first at 230 deg. C for 20 minutes, then turn it down to 180 until it's done. That is how to get the skin nice and crispy (don't cover it up once you take it out or the crispyness is ruined). You can first stuff it with grapes or a lemon, with bread crumbs, bacon and rosemary. Surround on the platter with bright red Johannesbeer, dark blue grapes, lemon wedges etc. Ya gotta dress it up, cuz it's only a chicken.

Re: Cooking for Swiss family...what to make?

Well...I gambled and did lasagne and salad from scratch etc....went down a treat!!!!!

Olives and antipasti to start and roulades for pud. Not very British I know. But a pie was tooooo heavy in this weather.

Re: Cooking for Swiss family...what to make?

I suggest pick one recipe from a Betty Bossi cook book. A lot of people say that its too common but when I cooked three dishes from it, my Swiss in-laws were very impressed (then again, they havent tried dishes from other kantons-weird enough).

Try the Meringue Parfait... its a hit
