  • Älplermagronen: The specialty from the Alps, this dish made of pasta, potatoes, cheese, onions, and cream, will make you remember Switzerland just the way it really is.
  • Cheese fondue: Many people are familiar with the chocolate fondue, yet what the Swiss people indulge in eating is a cheese fondue. The rules are the same – there is a port, there is a portable stove, all of that on your table, and you eat it directly or dip something (bread or potatoes) in it.
