Undoubtedly, you’ve heard of Switzerland’s famous chocolate and cheese. Did you also know that Switzerland loves bread, with over 200 regional varieties? Or, that Swiss cuisine includes French, German and Italian influences?
Since moving from the US to Switzerland in 2012, I’ve developed a passion for learning about Swiss cooking and baking. Cuisine Helvetica is my personal blog where I document and share my experiences as I discover this country’s food, drink and culinary travel. After working in the public and nonprofit sectors for the majority of my career, today I’ve reinvented myself as a food writer, cookbook author, content creator and recipe developer.
Helvetica: The Latin name for Switzerland. The nation’s official moniker is Confoederatio Helvetica.
My goal for Cuisine Helvetica is to share Swiss recipes you can use at home. I also publish articles via my blog and social media with food-related travel recommendations for Switzerland. These can include culinary events and regional specialties. Whether you live in Switzerland or visit here, I hope this information will help give you a taste of Swiss cuisine and culture.
