Famed for its mountains and alpine culture, Switzerland is a unique blend of Germanic, Italian, and French influence. The country’s warm and hearty cuisine is synonymous with dairy, including Swiss cheese, artisan milk chocolate, and bubbling pots of fondue. Winter time treats like hot chocolate are also popular and are best crafted with rich cocoa powder.
What Swiss dishes can I make?
If there is one dish that comes to mind with Swiss food, it may have to be fondue, a tradition that began in 18th century alpine homes. Large pieces of cheese are melted in a communal pot that is used for dipping meats, breads, and vegetables, a warm and welcoming winter tradition. Mild Swiss cheeses such as emmentaleralso make excellent complements to more robust flavors on a charcuterie board with crackers, cured meats, and crudite.
