To be fair, what with the ongoing climate of cost-cutting, Swiss might serve tinned Chuchichäschtli. Ghastly stuff, nothing like the real thing, but most of those tourists and Ausländer businessmen probably wouldn't know the difference anyway.
On planes they use the one in sachets, by Hero.

Swiss food looks perfect and everything, but ...

... sorry guys, it tastes like a s*&te.

I was trying, I was travelling trough Switzerland in hope to find something delicious or at least remotely editable, and apart from foreign imported food, I was able to find absolutely nothing. Nothing. Same tasteless cr*p everywhere. And it doesn't stop in Switzerland, it goes beyond. Last time that I was flying from London to Zurich with Swiss Air, stewardess tried to serve me with that - how it's called - CHUCHICHÄSCHTLI thing. It tastes the same way is it sounds and it sounds the same way as it looks, that is horrible. Luckily I recognised the dish (if I can call it so) and politely rejected it, saying that I'd rather jump from the plane than eat this pile of misery. Good thing was that the flight was short, otherwise I my life could be threatened with starvation. To my surprise stewardess started to crack.
The secret of Swiss food relies on the preparation!
Before eating it, you have to go in the mountain and have a 6 hours snow shoes walk.
Then it will be tasty

What makes me believe that this story is not true is the fact that if you flew from London to Zurich you...
...would know that the food options are chicken or cheese bread rolls.

Re: I have a confession to make

Chuchikäschtli is a kitchen cupboard. I'm not sure how one would eat that.

Re: I have a confession to make

Maybe trolls eat kitchen cupboards. The rest of us would eat Chäschuechli.

I wonder if he's ever eaten Schiisideckel. It'd be his style of food.

Some of us are not (Swiss) German speakers so actually appreciate the explanations.

Chuchichäschtli isn't "just" Swiss German -- it's the very definition of Switzerland! Haven't you every wondered why the country name is abbreviated to "CH"? Every Swiss resident should know the word Chuchichäschtli! (You're not required to be able to pronounce it, though, fortunately...)

With fava beans and a nice Chianti.
