Oh man, now I'm hungry...
It's cold enough out for fondue, right?

I can't believe they didn't include St. Galler Bratwurst for St. Gallen!

Just goes to show, to cook up Switzerland all you need is meat, potatoes, onions, cheese and a bit of dough

Cannot believe there is no Filets des Perches avec Frites et Sauce Tartare for Vaud. I cannot go five days without it!

Re: Swiss Food by Canton

Filet des Perches is BETTER, (there, I said it) than fish and chips. It is light, bite-sized and highly addicting. Just sauteed a la meuniere, it is food for the Gods and not a heathenly bottle of malt vinegar in sight. So sorry, dude.

Its not, for the simple reason that perch are scavengers, you eat one that recently feasted on the rotting corpse of a superfluous pimp and you will never travel without a bottle of Samsons again.

Re: Swiss Food by Canton

I don't think they have rotting pimps' corpses in Switzerland. I think those are extremely against the rules. At the very least, I know they are not allowed to be floating around in the lacs on Sundays. Jeez. You have been here long enough to know these things.
