Not one, but two Christmas cakes (one made with ordinary flour, the other with spelt flour). It took me two afternoons to decorate them.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Fillet of Beef Wellington I prepared for my old Mums birthday.

Can anyone explain to me why I can pay only around CHF 30 at Kaufland in Waldshut, and claim 8% mwst back when it's 70 a kilo in the Coop? It's ridiculous we have to pay these exorbitant prices when you can get the same thing over the border. I can save my train fare simply by buying cat food, and makes for a nice day out wandering through the old walled town overlooking the Rhine

I`m not sure of all the cost intricasies involved, (besides the low minimum wages in Germany), but one of the reasons meat is cheap in Germany is that, concerning beef, their animal laws are not as strict as in Switzerland.

For instance, in Germany, a farmer may remove a calf from its mother at 2 days old (allowing her to be milked for profit) , and at 6 months old it then spends the next 2 years tethered to a wall in a barn, eating what is given. This takes only one person to manage. When its grown its sent to the abatoire.

In Switzerland a calf must stay with its mother for the first 6 months, and may not be tethered. It must have access to sunshine, fresh grass, and be able to walk around. This takes more manpower to manage, and prevents the farmer using the milk for profit.

(There is actually a difference in taste/smell resulting from the two different practices. A meat connoiseur can tell the difference )

Higher wages in Switzerland means higher shop rentals - so meat costs more.

Slow roasted pulled pork BBQ.
Almost a confit this time around.
A hybrid Carolina/Adobo style.
Swiss pork is goooooooooood!

My husband's version of Ttamasle's recipe.

We did the shopping a bit late in the day and the only pork shoulder left didn't have the fat on, so it looks (and tastes, I'm sure) quite different.

Still, it was delicious!!!

AWESOME!!!

Its true: the extra fat goes a long way when it comes to this method of roasting. Almost like a pork confit that you get to eat the same day.

Oh, I'll get my husband to cook it again, and again, and again, until we find the taste you describe...
