Basel (Food In The Cantons)
I’ve always had a sweet spot for the Basel cantons. People from Basel are a lot more friendly and relaxed compared to my Zurich folks; I love their dialect; they host Switzerland’s most loved zoo, the Basler Zolli; their carnival is amazing in many ways and the Basler Herbstmesse (autumn fair) is a lot more […]
World Bread Series: China
Next up in our world bread series is China, written by Wei from food blog Red House Spice. As someone who traveled through China and got to taste authentic Chinese food, Wei’s blog is such a treasure for me, I could spend hours on it. Thank you so much Wei for your contribution. To many […]
Food Waste: What’s The Problem?
Global food waste has been a large concern for me for quite some time, which is why I’m going to publish a series of food waste posts this year. Most people feel bad about throwing away food and would like to reduce their food waste but somehow don’t manage. Not throwing away food requires determination […]
Food Truck Kitchen (Book Review)
In March last year, Switzerland-based graphic designers Sasa Noël and Heike Grein published their book Food Truck Kitchen (German language). The cover looked great so I was keen to check it out. I have to admit that I often don’t read much the text in food books because it’s often quite long, but Food Truck […]
Thurgau (Food In The Cantons)

World Bread Series: Balkans
The next world bread post comes from the Balkans. I’m so happy to have found Aida and her blog. She makes Balkans food easily accessible to people who know nothing about the Balkans like me. For this specific article, the countries referring to the Balkans are the Ex-Yugoslavia countries (Bosnia & Herzegovina, Croatia, Slovenia, Macedonia, […]
HelvetiBox: The Cantons Food Box
In times of the Lädelisterben (the closing down of the small shops due to the big supermarkets), businesses like HelvetiBox are adding some much needed regionality and exposure of small producers to Switzerland’s culinary landscape. HelvetiBox is a monthly food box delivered to your door that lets you taste specialities of one canton per month. […]
Swiss Chocolate Gifts You Can’t Buy Abroad
Swiss chocolate always makes a great present for family and friends abroad. But in times of an ever-increasingly globalised world, it pays to know which Swiss chocolates still aren’t easily to come by outside of Switzerland. So, leave the Lindt and Toblerone chocolates in the supermarket shelves and opt for one of the ideas below. […]
