Not at I would need it much but have you ever seen Kama powder sold in Switzerland? It is made of rye, wheat, peas.

May be there are not so many Estonians in Switzerland, but I know at least three, so there are probably more than three. And there is much more of Russian or Finish people. In Russian it is called "Толокно" and in Finnish "Talkkuna" (almost the same word ). Probably you can look for it in the shops with Russian products.

Thanks.
Well, it is not most people's favourite in Estonia, but I guess on a hot summer day it is quite pleasant. (I used to have it once a month or twice a month).
, Hah, I would not touch sauerkraut.

Talkkuna I know but if you ask for "kama" in Finland you mean drugs.

I have no idea where to buy what you are looking for.

Now there's a 4th Estonian in CH, but please keep the kama away from me. As a child I was forced to drink this in the kindergarden and I'm scarred for life
