Most Famous food around the world

Right these are also very popular, especially raclette is probably even more popular then fondue. At any open air event you will always come across it. Or bratwurst and cervilat.

You know of allot of dishes I don’t even know, thats interessting.

Bircher muesli is really nice, also there you can do in which ever variation that suits your tastes. Also thats a vegan proof dish that you could do with alternatives instead of milk.

Here I couldn’t find a recipe in English for the Zurich geschnetzeletes but its quite simple with that tutorial I guess, also it fits perfect to roesti:

Here the Engadiner nut pastry, I nearly forgot about that one its a really nice candy.

It looks like your parents where living at the eastern part of Switzerland up at the mountains, I thought because of the dishes you named. Its a very beautiful region there.


No, not at all. I can’t recall the village she was from but it is not that far from Basel something about 30-50 minutes drive. My dad’s roots are Swiss but actually even my grandmother (she was Swiss, my dad had always the German nationality, because of my grandfather being German) being Swiss, she was born in Pomerania now Poland, back then a lot of Swiss people were living and working there. I can’t tell what influence Pomerania had on Swiss eating habits LOL
Unfortunately my grandmother died when I was 12, so it never came up as a topic, since she lived further away, we were always happy to visit and meet and live rather in the present than in the past.
One of her sister’s happened to move to the Tessin/Ascona, we visited her one time in the late 70’s, she died a year after my granny. She was nothing like my granny in character, but she was working in a hotel, and we could use the pool at night, that was pretty refreshing in that hot summer. She would always drink her wine from a boccalino, and boy she could hold her liquor.


Swiss is interesting in this department, you will come across many mentalities and also they vary as the dialect to each region you travel. I like the German mentality they are always straight forward. I used to live in Germany aswel at first it was a bit strange since we swiss people tend to hide usually our thoughts and keep up friendly face. Its great to have a multi cultural family, it allows for a wider perspective.

During the years our cuisine here has been largely influenced also by slavic foods, I like that it brings some variety into the kitchen. I personally prefer a healthy diet and im happy to eat rice in all variations to im vegetarian, I to dont eat milk products except for coffee but honestly coffee soya late tastes not really great.

Ascona is so pretty, I was considering to move into Ticino since I prefer the souther mentality, is more open and warm in contact. I like the description of your grand aunt. Wine is probably also a speciality here that also varies throughout each region. Its funny that a small country can offer so much diversity even in subtle products or recipe as cuisine or bakery.

I guess I found a Swiss trademark in my character I wasn’t aware of. LOL I am like that in many things, but I can’t hold back the German straightforwardness too long.

I remember it as expensive too. But the surroundings and the possibilities it offers Lago Maggiore, Lorcarno, just a small tour on the ferry and you are in Italy, even the feeling in Ascona is more Italian than Swiss I would say. Gelati was great there and walking in the late afternoons, my first time playing mini-golf was there. Oh, and the not too far away Verzasca Valley, lovely place. I remember that they were baking fresh bread in an old oven outside and everyone would stay longer at the place just to get a really fresh bread and it smelled and tasted great.
Oh, I forgot one place where I went on a so called youth camp, from our church in my hometown. There was one always organizing 2-week holidays, so the youngsters could travel. The last tour to the Swiss, because it went more expensive was in the early 80’s to a town called Brienz, I remember eating a lot of so-called hot sandwiches, with ham, cheese (Brienzer Mutschler), tomatoes grilled until the cheese melted and mmh, was so good and somewhat affordable for us in our teens. What we enjoyed too, was a Tee-Stube in Brienz a place to drink tea, and we would get addicted to their orange tea, not a Swiss product for sure, but a memory.


I see so much food and most of sll them I would’nt like. That is so sad :sob::scream:

I’m with you on this one. :relaxed:

They do? Based on the two separate post, I’ve learned there are different fillings. I’d hands down grab a filling with cheese toppings. :grin:

Koreans’ most beloved dish of all time:
Samgyeopsal • 삼겹살.

I loved the narrator’s enjoyment of sharing it too, it reminds me of early K-Drama’s. :blush:

That was a very interesting documentary about the pork belly meat dishes, notice that some dishes are time elaborate and those cooking still outside with only wood… wow.

@leerla73 I did watch it with English subs, therefore it was interesting including the narrator :wink:

Hmm, I want some too, all looks delish!!


:smile::laughing::rofl: You, and me both! Wasn’t it an experience though? I was thoroughly entertained. You can tell they truly loved every bite. That is probably the key with this show, the participants are always different, giving everyone watching, a genuine reaction to their experience.
