Swiss Delicacies: What You Have To Try
24th May 2018
To travel is to broaden the mind. In our own environments, it is easy to consume much of the same; the same foods, the same experiences, the same conversations. It easy to stagnate as we don’t push ourselves to new understandings. When you’re away, well it’s much easier to indulge in the different. And well, as Verbier chalet specialists, we can say we sure have a lot of that.
In the winter, the slopes are the different you invariably indulge in. In the summer, perhaps it’ll be hiking, maybe even paragliding. And thedifferentyou’ll enjoy no matter what time of year it is, is the fine Swiss food offerings.
What exactly are Swiss delicacies and how do I order them? We’re here to answer that for you.
Currently making the rounds of food pages on Instagram and Facebook, raclette sure is in right now. And to be honest, it’s pretty obvious as to why: it’s delicious and looks incredible, too. A social dish, this is one locals will indulge in over an extended period of time. A real Swiss delicacy.
Papet Vaudois can be unenchantingly described as leeks and potatoes left to stew over a few hours. But that doesn’t do it justice, so we ask you only ever call it Papet Vaudois. That gives the dish the allure it deserves. It is served with local sausages, giving the leeks and potatoes that herby kick which makes this dish so delicious. You have to try this one. And remember, Paper Vaudois. Nothing else.
A hybrid of sorts, Tartiflette is said to have first been made close to the Swiss/French border. But the history isn’t what will interest you, rather, the components will; sliced potatoes, smoky bacon, caramelised onions, and Reblochon cheese. In other words, all things that make you salivate. It’s a dish of the highest order; one of our finest.
Better-known but who knows, you may still be in the dark. Rosti is traditionally just thinly sliced Potato, fried until golden brown. Here, however, you’ll get a whole lot more. It commonly is topped with fried eggs, bacon, and cheese here, often with a side of pickled foods. You’ll see this mostly everywhere you go as it’s perhaps Switzerland’s most popular dish.
And of course, a fondue. A staple – the staple of Switzerland, fondues have fed and pleasured the locals for years and also visitors alike. How has it stood the test of time? Well, dipping bread into melted cheese is delicious and lots of people really like to do it.
