SAVOR & SIP

Whether delighting in the decadence of a creamy fondue or relishing the golden goodness of rösti, Switzerland is a delicious montage of epicurean influences from French and German to Northern Italian. From Chasselas, Petite Arvine, Cornalin and Merlot, to zürcher geschnetzeltes and papet Vaudois, polenta to heusuppe, vacherin Mont-d’Or and appenzeller, Swiss cuisine is a tasty timeline of alpine history.
