Here are some of the must-try items from the Swiss menu that we have put together:
1- Fondue: The signature dish of Switzerland
Tagged as one of the most popular street foods in Switzerland, fondue is known to be one of the oldest dishes in the region. Literally meaning ‘melted’, fondue is a pot of melted cheese, wine, and garlic, served on open flame, and people dip their bread pieces with long forks and eat it. It is considered to be one of the staple foods of the locals, as molten cheese helps keep them warm in the colder months. Fondue served with a hot steaming cup makes a wholesome winter meal!
2- Rosti: The iconic national dish
Rosti is a very common dish known to have been the staple of Swiss farmers for breakfast. However nowadays this dish finds its place on the tables as a main dish or snack at any time of the day. Prepared from grated fried potato with stuffing of cheese, and/or onion, Rosti is made using different methods in different regions.
3- Nusstorte: A flavorful Dessert
If you have a sweet tooth, then this pastry is a must-try for you. Nusstorte is a traditional sweet, caramelised nut-filled pastry that has been on Swiss tables at least since the 1920s. The perfect fusion of cream and nuts is tempting indeed and treated as an absolute delight for dessert-lovers.
From freshly-baked Swiss cheese, to fluffy rolls served with delectable jams, and traditional stews prepared with age-old recipes—we welcome you to experience it all with our gastronomic tours, a true and unique experience of one-of-a-kind.
