巧克力

2018-05-29T20:01:28+08:00

瑞士巧克力以其独特的口感和多种多样的味道闻名世界。一般来说,巧克力有三种基本的口味:黑巧克力,牛奶巧克力以及白巧克力,各种不计其数的其它原材料添加进这些基本口味的巧克力里组合成丰富多彩的巧克力品种。
把巧克力加进牛奶里,口感也是非常好的,也可以作为很好的补充能量的饮料。
有许多知名的大公司诸如林德、伽列、雀巢等都有上好的巧克力产品售卖。另外有一家名叫德拉赫的巧克力公司也突然涌现在大街小巷,他们的新品巧克力也非常美味可口。
为了得到价格合理的优质巧克力,Migros(米格罗斯百货)也有自己的巧克力品牌弗雷。

奶酪火锅

2017-04-10T21:23:44+08:00

奶酪火锅是瑞士的国菜!它究竟如何呢?
其实理念很简单。把切碎的奶酪慢慢加热,再加入一些白葡萄酒和玉米淀粉。当奶酪融化之后,只需要用一个长的叉子将切好的面包片沾上融化的芝士酱,就可以开始享受美味的奶酪火锅了。
在超市里有各种各样已经打包好的现成火锅配料,只需要回家将奶酪融化就能搞定。品质上乘一些的是各种不同奶酪配在一起包装。然后你只需加入一些葡萄酒、淀粉和蒜蓉就完成了。甚至有一些是专门的一人份约200克左右的,放进微波炉加热就可以了。
瑞士的每一个家庭里面几乎都有吃奶酪火锅的设备。他们包括奶酪专用的锅、可移动的加热炉和一个长的叉子。这些设备几乎在各大超市都有出售。
奶酪火锅是比较腻的,一般一个瑞士成人一次能吃大概200克左右。如果你是第一次尝试,注意别吃太多。
它也非常简单,其实就是只是和面包而已!
奶酪是很棒的食物,但也有很大的味道。通常我们在冬天和朋友们聚在一起吃奶酪火锅的时候,会关上门在厨房里吃,以免它的味道四溢到整个房间。
为了解腻和帮助消化,我们通常会喝点白葡萄酒,黑茶或者汽水。作为甜点,我们通常配合水果沙拉一起,这样不会太腻。

2017-02-23T04:11:21+08:00

拉沃位于瑞士小镇维沃和和卢塞恩之间的日内湖上(法语也称之为莱蒙湖)。在瑞士小镇吕特里、 维莱特、艾佩斯、圣塞芙农、波尔多纳、德萨雷、卡拉曼、维沃各种的沙思拉葡萄品种成为了拉沃地区葡萄酒庄的特色和基础。拉沃地区百分之八的酒庄出产口感上好的白葡萄酒。

上苍对拉沃梯田特别眷顾,这里的葡萄酒得益于这里的三个太阳:第一个太阳是天上的太阳,第二个太阳是湖水折射的阳光,如镜的日内瓦湖的水面将大量阳光折射到葡萄园里,第三个太阳是梯田上数以千计的天然石墙对热量的储存使得葡萄园整天都保持在最适宜葡萄生长的理想温度。三个太阳的眷顾,得天独厚的环境使拉沃梯田成为葡萄生长的理想之地。

在拉沃地区大约有250 个家族从祖辈那里传承了葡萄种植和酿制葡萄酒的产业,在吕特里最古老的酒庄甚至可以追溯到公园997年。 拉沃梯田的迷人景色、以及历史传承使得拉沃地区在2007年已经被联合国教科文组织认定为世界文件遗产。

在每年6月到10月的星期日下午在向导的带领下探索拉沃地区葡萄园梯田。 下午三点钟从库利开始,整个行程时间约2小时30分,最后在葡萄酒品尝钟结束行程。之后,搭乘被精心翻新过的古老的瑞士蒸汽船在日内瓦湖上巡游,沉静在湖光山色里。最后1个小时左右的车程即可回到伯尔尼。

瑞士美食

2017-05-16T02:28:55+08:00

法国、德国和意大利种类各异的美食在很大程度上影响着瑞士的美食。所以在瑞士你可以找到高级法式烹饪、美味的意大利食物 (当然不仅仅只是披萨)以及是在的德国菜品。啤酒或者红酒当然也是一顿大餐中不可或缺的。

在瑞士也有很多本地菜系。本地菜通常简单的使用土豆、面包或者奶酪作为原材料。奶酪火锅和烤芝士以及煎土豆饼是比较有名的本地菜。

图片上的萝卜汤品是尼徳峰山顶的一个普通的餐厅的食物。然而不单单是食物的品质,被盛上的方式也会让它显得很不一样。

一周里工作日期间的午餐时间通常是很划算的。几乎每个餐厅根据位置不同都有15到25瑞郎的套餐在中午提供,包括一个前餐、主食以及甜品。

瑞士的国际酒店管理学院闻名世界。最有名的一个是在洛桑的酒店管理学院,另外在卢塞恩、苏黎世以及图恩也都有很棒的国际酒店管理学院。

伯格多夫著名的啤酒

2017-06-20T16:50:54+08:00

伯格多夫是一个迷人的历史小镇,坐落在岩石上的中世纪的大城堡是这里最突出的建筑。它距离伯尔尼不到25公里,同时也是通往美丽的埃蒙河谷的大门。

1999伯格多夫有名的啤酒制造商开始了它的商业。与此同时,他们非常成功,后来搬到了一个更大的(也是一个有着历史的古老的)地点。在5月21日星期六的大会上,超过1600名股东参加了会议。所有出席会议的人都可以享受免费的啤酒和香肠。这种股东分配大会是非常真实的。

他们的大会真是我所参加过的最有趣的股东会议。每个参会的人心情都很好,大家一边喝着各种各样的啤酒,一边做生意。

每个人心情都很好。大会第十八届会议顺利的在人群欢呼中通过了每一项议程。

这个啤酒酿造商还只是一个本地的公司,但是伯格多夫啤酒却已经声名远扬远远超出了伯尔尼州的边界。公司也提供有向导的信息丰富的参观服务。在参观结束时,往往很难抵挡品尝他们自己酿造的新鲜啤酒的诱惑。

Happy Easter

2016-03-21T12:02:08+08:00

Easter is a happy holiday. For weeks before this public holiday the shops already start selling chocolate Easter rabbits. They come in all sorts of shapes and flavours. You get the normal milk chocolate as well as black and white chocolate Easter rabbits. Some kids keep their chocolate rabbits for months resisting all temptations. Those sweet beasts are still quite fine after many months….

There is an Easter tradition that the families celebrate together with this kids. After a generous brunch the parents will hide some of the sweet goodies outside in the garden or around the home and then let the excited kids search and discover them.

On Easter Sunday people also like to eat hard boiled eggs with colored shells. Some of those eggs are turned into quite some artwork.

Easter is a long weekend off work. People are off work from Good Friday until Easter Monday. Some also use the opportunity for a brief holiday abroad.

Easter is early this year (already on Sunday, March 27, 2016). In the Western church (in contrast with the Eastern church) the date is set on the first Sunday following the full moon after March 20. Easter is in correlation with the Jewish Passover festival during which Christ was crucified and then three days later rose from the dead.

In many churches there are special services remembering Christ’s death on the cross (Good Friday) and his resurrection (Easter). Often these services are accompanied by great classical or sacred music.

Vermicelles, a Delicious Dessert

2016-02-12T13:36:20+08:00

This dessert is a speciality that comes from the Ticino, the Italian speaking part of Switzerland. But nowadays during winter it is enjoyed all over the country.

The word vermicelles is probably derived from the latin vermiculus – small worms. Sweet chestnuts are smashed. Sugar and butter are added. The mass of the pressed chestnut mix is pressed through a form with holes. The result are the delightful “small worms”. The ready made product is found in most supermarkets and sold in smaller blocks.

This winter dessert is completed with cream and meringue. The latter is a very sweet mix of sugar and egg white that gets carefully heated up. It turns into a white brittle material.

A guete! (Swiss German, literally: “Wishing you a good appetite”) Enjoy!

On January 6: The Three Kings Cake

2017-08-02T22:57:40+08:00

At the beginning of January the three kings cake is a very popular bakery product. Leavened sweet bread is rolled into buns. In one of the buns a small plastic figure is hidden. The person who finds the figure has the privilege to wear the crown that comes along with it. Obviously every year the kids are very excited to search for the hidden treasure!

The three kings cake is sold in supermarkets and bakeries. This one here cost CHF 4.70 at Migros and weighs 420g. It really is delicious.

Nowadays most people are probably hardly aware what the three kings cake is all about. The biblical record states: “After Jesus’ birth, Wise Men from the east came to Jerusalem. They asked, “Where is the child who has been born to be king of the Jews? When we were in the east, we saw his star. Now we have come to worship him.”” (Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 2, Verse 1-2)

By the third century legends started mentioning three kings. By the 6th century they were called Caspar, Melchior and Balthasar. In Switzerland the tradition of the three kings cake was only introduced after WWII.
