As an Englishman, I have found the sausages and bacon in the region to be not as good as back in the UK. However, in Migros (Annemasse) there are some very tasty, regionally made, English style sausages and handmade bacon. I would go as far as saying they rival even the best sausages Britain has to offer. There are a variety of different sausages to choose from as well as excellent locally handmade bacon. The butcher has also said the produce is available Migros at Val Thoiry.  I strongly recommend any english breaskfast lovers, who want a flavoursome breakfast, to go and buy both the sausages and bacon as u to now they are the best I've had and I have lived her for nearly 4 years.  Look for the packaging with a a half french/english style flag and Brit Brand.    Awesome produce.

High quality British style sausages and Hand made Bacon (made in Lyon to AS standard) are now available at The MIGROS in Annemasse and MIGROS Thoiry. The same Bacon and sausages used by Paul Bocuse at Ouest Express and that are found in some of the best hotels in the region are now on the shelves of these supermarkets. Don't miss them if you want locally sourced products made from locally scourced pork (no rusk) and home prepared spice mixes. The Bacon is rubbed with Camargue sea salt (not injected as is most often the case), and left to cure naturally. Sweetcure, nature and light smoked. Sausages are Breakfast, pork and apple, fresh herbs and bacon and onion. Bring on Brunch...

Hello I am flying into Geneva from Egypt and want to bring fruit mince pies I have made (pastry and fruit and nuts - all cooked). I am from New Zealand so I know for sure that this would not be allowed through NZ customs but I wondered if it is ok for Geneva as the rules are not as strict as in NZ. Can anyone clarify for me?

Hi, I have a nut allergy--something the Swiss don't seem to have. In any case, I was wondering if anyone had luck tracking down sunflower seed butter anywhere in Geneva that is nut free? I'm desperately craving some. Thanks in advance!

I've been in Geneva a few years and have always been frustrated by the lack of high quality fast food outlets. In the US and now in the UK I've seen the latest variation is mobile fast food. Entrepreneurial ventures are using trucks to take orders direct to customers, typically lunch time drive by to busy office complexes. The trend seems to be exploiting the rise of social networking to keep customers dynamically informed and primed for their visits. Question to anyone out there: do you think this concept would work in Geneva / region? PS for a link, see http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/37400996/ns/business-small_business/

Hello, My daughter is in Switzerland at the moment and I would like to order a fruit basket to be delivered to her. Can anyone recommend a shop or service in Switzerland that offers this? It seems a good idea to me to order in Switzerland, rather than outside. Many thanks for any recommendations.
