  1. hi !
    i'm french...
    And what about the "salée-sucrée" (i don't knom the nam in english) a speciality of Vaud ? A sort of pie, like a bread, with sugar on. I tasted it when i was in Yverdon-les-bains, it was great.
    Bye bye !

  2. SYLVIA: Thanks for passing by and for leaving a comment! This wonderful bread speciality from Vaud is called "La Salée", but is generally sweet (with cream and sugar), although it can also be savory... Cheers, Rosa.

  3. Hi Rosa, thanks of stopping by my blog earlier. It's nice to find another foodblogger from Switzerland. I would love to learn more Swiss recipes and will definitely come back for them. Also I can tell you like Asian food too : )

  4. Hi Rosa,

    I am so happy to find your blog, as a half swiss person raised in the UK and living in the US I am looking for Swiss inspiration! Do you have a recipe for Chestnut Vermicelli - was my favorite as a child and would now like to try it out myself.

    Thanks! Monica

  5. Do you have a recipe for Beggeshmutz? I've been looking everywhere and can't seem to find anything. Is it some closely guarded Swiss secret?! I'm hooked since I tasted them at the Herbstmesse in Basel.

  6. ANONYMOUS: Unfortunately, I don't have a recipe for Beggeschmutz... I never heard of that speciality before. It seems all recipes are to be found in German. Sorry!

  7. ANONYMOUS: Thanks for passing by! Unfortunately, I don't have a recipe in English for that speciality... this recipe might help, though:

  8. Hi Rosa, as a Swiss girl, do you know a good recipe for rösti potato (if this is how you name it) or any indication? I was hoping to find one at the Swiss Specialties section of your blog... Any tip will be appreciated. Thanks!

  9. RENATA: I make Rösti, but never follow a recipe... Nonetheless those look good:
    I sometimes add garlic (powder or fresh)and ground black pepper to mine. I hope that helps... Cheers.

  10. I'll take a look. Can't wait to try it. Thank you so much for the tips!

  11. Just bumped into your blog. Very lovely blog. FOlowing you.

    If time permits visit my blog too:

  12. I will certainly stop by another time to try some of the specialities. Living in Ticino we end up cooking more italian rather than swiss food :)
