... did I mention yet that the trimmings are important?
No. Shame on you, how are people ever supposed to learn if you don't give them all the info up front? Must be too busy counting lentils with the little ones...

You clearly have no knowledge of either Swiss or Italian food.

Tom
Well you used the "clearly" incorrectly, and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swiss_cuisine seems nobody has an idea.

Kirschstängeli.

Absolutely impossible to find in the U.S. and maybe even illegal to import personaly.

Either way gastronomy here is a mixture of german(sausage, potatoe, bread, beer), french(wine, cheese, sauces), and Italian(Pastas).
Ever had Capuns, Chäschnöpfli, Zürigschnetzlets, Tuorta da nusch? None of these fit in your above "categories" but they are very much loved traditional Swiss dishes.

Italian cuisine, for one, also contains risotti etc.; so it doesn't consist exclusively of spaghetti, calzone, pizze etc. - but also rice dishes, meat dishes, pasta dishes, cheeses (including the Casu Marzu ) etc.

I don't remember saying Switzerland does t have anything unique, remember when I quoted the dog sausages? And hazelnut tart is not unique or wild lets be sincere.

PS: Swiss people dont like rice, don't know why you mention the risotto, and you forgot the polenta which is most eaten food after pasta(in Italy).

Seriously the parenthesis are specifying the gastronomic departments in which we took from those other cultures.(after all some cantons used to be part of those countries).

Nut Tart is not unique or wild or crazy..... Neither is pecan pie.

I'm quite aware of what constitutes Italian food (I've had a fair bit of training having married into a family from both the South and the North of Italy)

Outside of Ticino, I wouldn't say that Swiss cuisine is influenced by Italian food enough to actually make it worth a mention unless you also said, for example, that British cuisine has a strong Italian influence as all and sundry can make some attempt at a Bolognese sauce and probably have it once a week.

Yes, there are a lot of Italians in Switzerland and they like Italian food. So what?

Re: Last chance to try some uniquely Swiss foods

There's a strong Asian influence in Swiss-German cuisine as you can get Riz Casimir* at many restaurants and it's in every Swiss-German cookbook.

*Rice, curry sauce, pork, cherries, pineapple with a large dash of the 1970s.

(Nice drive-by groaning Stlemans. Do you every contribute anything to this forum apart from your drive-by groans and your constant showing off?)

Re: Last chance to try some uniquely Swiss foods

Pizokel, the Grisons take on Spätzli/Spätzle/Knöpfli/Chnöpfli using a Buckwheat/Wheat mixture instead of a Durum Wheat/Wheat mixture (I prefer a 50:50 for my Knöpfli).

a cousin of it is Pizzoccheri a Buckwheat/Wheat tagliatelle from Valtellina and Poschiavo.

I'd miss the coarse Buurewurscht they sell at Luzern Fasnacht.
The ones they sell here in some of the better butchers year round are pretty much the same actually. No idea if this applies anywhere else, though.


Downside is you know you've eaten one for the next 24 hours.

Re: Last chance to try some uniquely Swiss foods

Who can compe up with a gluten free recipe for Spätzli - for poor DB who wants all the trimmings for his 'chasse'? Please


Now you can hear me coming- but I love our local take on the Kirschstängeli- made by Jacot chocolatier (Noiraigue/NE) - absinthe stängelis- or rather 'Bâtons à l'Absinthe'. Also available at my favourite local Museum- La Maison de l'Absinthe in Môtiers (NE not VD).

Game isn't the preserve of the Swiss - there's much more of a selection in the U.K., for example.

I prefer game chips rather than spätzli.

The only pheasant I could buy here was a frozen one kicking around the bottom of a freezer at Jemoli.

My local butcher in the U.K. had loads hanging up.

However, I do like the way the Swiss still revere the changing seasons and welcome in and celebrate the foods of the season - even if most of the venison here seems to come from New Zealand - even from quite upmarket butchers who don't advertise as coming from there.
