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

Okay, this past weekend's comfort food: Vegetarian Chili and Spelt Cornbread Muffins...


That dutch oven took up a lot of space in my suitcase. Definitely could never live without it!

These were both made from The America's Test Kitchen Cookbook and then slightly adapted. First time making this old favorite in Switzerland. It turned out well, but the Migros chili powder I used didn't pack nearly enough punch! Does anyone know where to get really good chili powder in Zurich?

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



I made these over the weekend but they went to my husbands office before I got a photo of them
They looked just like this (google image) but with white chocolate swirls added.

Go to any Indian or Sri Lankan grocery shop for hot chilli powder. Please ask Swisspea for an address in Zurich if you don't know any. (In a pinch, go to Yumi-hana, off Bahnhoffstrasse near ZHB, at Schutzengasse; Koreans know their chillies.)

What are they called and do you have a recipe link? (My waistline will regret it in the morning but who's listening, right?)

That is a delightful sight! Beautiful table and yummy looking fondue!!! I'm jealous of your access to fine Swiss wines in Auvernier. Luckily we are headed to Neuch this weekend for the beautiful little Christmas market. Let it snow!! Hauling back cases of wine will be worth the hassle!!

Chocolate Caramel Slice Recipe

Makes one 20cm (8") square cake pan. (I used a 30cm square pan as I prefer my slice thin. This is the normal version. I substituted Schaer gluten free flour and icing sugar instead of brown sugar. Also piped a little white chocolate over the top and ran a skewer through it to add texture to the top (purely for decorative purposes)

Ingredients.
Biscuit Base Ingredients

1 cup plain flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
2/3 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
2/3 cup desiccated coconut
80g butter, melted

Caramel Filling Ingredients
3 x 250g tubes of sweetened condensed milk
50g butter
5 tablespoons golden syrup (purchased at Globus)

Chocolate Topping Ingredients
200g dark chocolate
30g coconut oil

Baking Temperature
Preheat the oven to 180oC.
Method.
Grease and line a 20 cm (8”) square cake pan with non-stick baking paper.
In a bowl mix together the dry ingredients for the biscuit base. Make sure there are no brown sugar lumps. Mix through the melted butter. Press into the base of the prepared cake pan. Use the back of your hand to make it even and level. Bake at 180oC for 15 mins. The base will have risen and be just starting to colour. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
While the base is baking add the caramel filling ingredients to a small pan stir over a low heat until the butter has melted and the filling is smooth. Continue stirring, the mix will be just bubbling, continue to stir for five minutes. Pour over the still warm base and return to the oven for a further 15 minutes. The filling will just be starting to colour on the top. Remove from the oven and leave to cool.
Add the chocolate topping ingredients to a medium sized microwave safe bowl and microwave on high for 45 seconds. Stir until smooth. You may need to microwave again for a further 20 seconds. For more information on How to Melt Chocolate - click here. Pour over the cooled caramel filling. Spread to the edges. Tap the slice gently on the bench to level the chocolate. Leave to set.
Cut the chocolate caramel bars into as many portions as you like. Sometimes it is easier to slice if you set in the refrigerator first. To make a clean cut through the chocolate, warm your knife first and clean between each cut.
This chocolate slice recipe will keep for a week if stored in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

There's also a Mexican specialty store, El-Maiz on the Josefstrasse, behind Zurich HB.

Thanks, but it's not my table and it's in Zurich! Dare I say it, but I'm actually not a fan of the wines from this area. I don't remember where those wines were from, but they were tasty. Haven't gone to the market yet, am going to check it out tomorrow. Will let you know if I find soething especially lovely!

Kamarate, the wine in your photo is a Fendant du Valais Pierrafeu AOC. See http://www.provins.ch/fr/shop/?alt_v...n&no_vin=01550

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

That wasn't one of my favourites (we had many different wines that evening!). The best one was an Italian one, though I can't for the life of me remember what it was...

It was one hell of a weekend for my body weight but totally worth it

Polish bigos in Italian bread bowls, baci di ricotta, fritatta with courgette, cinnamon cookies without flour and gulash with steamed bread rolls
Hi LIttle Polka,

Bigos is it stewed cabbage, carrots, tomato paste and meat? Can you post recipe please... I seem to remember my grandma used to cook this.

Thanks
