Culinary Switzerland is a gourmet’s paradise to be explored. Swiss cuisine combines influences from the German, French and North Italian cuisine. However, it varies greatly from region to region with the language divisions constituting a rough boundary outline.

Initiated by the Embassy of Switzerland to support our efforts to raise funds for local charities.
