From poutine to raclette

Hello!

I've been reading this forum for months and I thought I should introduce myself and thank you.

I'm currently in Canada, but have been researching a move to Switzerland to be with my Swiss boyfriend. I recently spent a month in Zurich taking an intensive German course at Alemania.

I work in television in a variety of technical positions: video editing, feeds, control room audio/graphics/playback/switcher.

I'm hockey-loving, maple-syrup-swilling Canadian, but also hold a British passport.

Any advice, job offers or snark would be welcome.

Cool. Giving up LaFleur's poutine for a boyfriend is a big sacrifice on your part :-)

I buy a Turkish cheese called Hellim Peynir. It has the same squeak squeak feeling and the taste is very close to. It is a goat cheese. You can find them in probably any Turkish grocery stores. I cut them in small cubes and they melt very well while keeping some shape.

It is almost as good as the real Ashton Poutine!
