Croissant Marmellata - best one in Zurich?

I am considering being nice to an Italian colleague - but I have no idea where to buy a really good croissant marmellata. Suggestions?

The winner will have one bought for them.
(first suggestion of the place that wins - not some (necrotic) posting 3 hour/days/months/years later)

Re: Croissant Marmellata - best one in Zurich?

When did you start being nice to people? Has your account been hacked?

Is the Italian colleague a laaaydy?

If she is in fact a laaydy, I got a winner for you, Ken. Sicilian Lemon Marmelade.

No - he's a bloke.

I know - people don't want nice - people want consistent.

Well, he might still love the limone one, they got orange or tangerine ones, too. But I think lemon goes the best on anything doughy or crispy.

People don't want nice; people want croissant.

Re: Croissant Marmellata - best one in Zurich?

I like the taste of croissant with Boursin cheese spread and Marmite with sliced cucumber - but I don't think this is a romantic gesture.
Good combination though. Not really Marmellata

Boursin, marmite and cucumber? That's not nice. That's deranged.

Re: Croissant Marmellata - best one in Zurich?

Will try it.
The marmite cheese cucumber combination.

It's an aquired taste based on a Travellers Fare upmarket sandwich experiment from the early 1990s on ex British Rail. Apparently some top chef at the time designed them.

I forget who - Egon Ronay? Or maybe Igor?

The sausage and Branston Pickle and Chicken and Stuffing ones were nice also on a 5 hour journey. Probably snackwise also ok in the middle of a Croissant.
I have simple tastes. Also as I smoke I have no taste buds left.

I feel compelled to recreate that weird combo and acquire the taste!

Bursin - which one? Garlic/herbs or pepper? Pepper! Although UK Rails I can imagine probably did a plain cream cheese.

The Marmite, Boursin, cucumber sandwich pre-dates some chef working for BR by about twenty years. My OH used to put that combination in his work sarnies way back in the mid-seventies!
MC, it would have been the original garlic and herbs Boursin. Condidered very exotic and slightly risqué back then.

Ohhhhh, so great. Tell me when you show up again to our GE club on Wedn and let's recreate this risqué BritRail thing! Cucumber sammiches are awesome, anyways. Just need to try it in croissants.
