If you are interested in learning about traditional Swiss foods, Patrimoine Culinaire Suisse maintains an online database with hundreds of examples (in French, German and Italian). You can search by canton to identify foods from a specific region of Switzerland. Among this list of traditional Swiss foods are 33 agricultural products that have been protected by the Swiss government with an AOP (Appellation d’Origine Protégée) or IGP (Indication Géographique Protégée) designation. Swiss regional wines have a separate designation—AOC (Appellations d’origine contrôlé).
