Making our dinner in a 200-year-old farmhouse, pulling vegetables right out of the dirt, and working with traditional tools over an open fire was a real eye-opener—and a lot of fun. - S.S. - Washington
With the snow-clad peaks of the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau as your backdrop you immerse yourself in the cuisine of Switzerland’s Alpine heartland. It’s hard to imagine that such a small country could have so much diversity in its cuisine. But if you fell in love with the Swiss cuisine on our tour in the French-speaking regions of Gruyères and Montreux, you’ll find an entirely different and equally enjoyable adventure in Switzerland’s German-speaking Alpine region.
Of course, you would expect hearty favorites like sturdy mountain cheeses, smoky sausages, potato rösti, and schnitzel. Then you’ll be tempted with lighter delicacies like meringues (invented in the Bernese town of Meiringen) or flaky apple strudel with vanilla sauce. Finally, we indulge in a tour of Zurich’s finest chocolate shops—it’s heaven. Explore your own food passions as you make apple strudel alongside a pastry chef, or prepare a perfect rösti crowned with melting Emmental cheese. Prepare yourself for yet another unforgettable visual and sensory feast in the Swiss Alps.
Your Swiss food adventure includes round trip transfers from the Zurich or Geneva Airport, six nights hotel accommodations, breakfasts, dinners, ground transportation, excursions, classes, demonstrations, tastings, guided walks, recipes, interpretive notes, and the services of an English-speaking expert guide. Prepare yourself for an unforgettable visual and sensory feast as you Discover Swiss Cuisine in the Bernese Oberland.
