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 I moved from the United States to Switzerland in 2012, I have 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 Swiss food, drink and culinary travel opportunities.

Cuisine: in English, “a style of cooking” (Merriam-Webster); in French, “cooking” or “kitchen” (Larousse).

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 provide food-related travel recommendations for Switzerland, such as culinary events and regional specialties. Whether you live in Switzerland or are visiting here, I hope this information will help give you a taste of Swiss cuisine and culture.

To learn more about my published work, you can check out my portfolio. If you would like to contact me about writing an article for your publication, please send me an email.

Many thanks for visiting my blog, and let’s keep in touch!

  1. Congratulations on the new blog! Looking forward to following along and seeing your beautiful photography, as well. Also, can’t wait to see you in person!

  2. So glad to find you! My heritage is Swiss and I learned to cook a few things from my Grandfather (my grandmother died before I was born). Polenta was a staple, since he was from Donat, Graubunden. He made perlanas and maluns. I love to cook, as do my cousins in Switzerland. This is going to be fun!
