A typical Swiss Sausage and Cheese Salad
Swiss food is perhaps not as famous
as French, Italian or even Thai food. I actually never thought about this and I am sure, the rest of my Helvetian inhabitants back in Switzerland and abroad would have done the same. We keep our traditional food at home for our culinary journey through variety of regional cuisines. Even since Swiss Chefs are famous abroad and many chefs from abroad have cooked at least in on of our hotels; our food has never made big headlines.
Said all this one does not require a headliner of a dish to enjoy good Swiss food, perhaps more thoughts are needed to select good ingredients. A simple Sausage and Cheese Salad
like we know in Zurich can bring enjoyment paired with a good, cold beer and some rustic bread.
