I would like to try out some typically Swiss recipes, but not sure if there are any books out there in English. I love to cook, and often see good things in restaurants that are "typical" that I would like to try out myself.Roesti, gschnetzltes (or however you spell it) and Basel onion pie - to name a few.Suggestions appreciated.hmw

Can someone tell me please about tipping in Switzerland and how that works. If I go for supper and pay let's say Sfr. 100.00, how much tip should I leave? I don't want to be cheap, but also not overdue it!

Hello all I am thinking of writing a cookbook of Swiss favourites, and if you would like to be part of it, just send me a note or your email address and I will tell you more. Do you have a favourite passed down to you by you in-laws or family that you would like to share - then I'd like to hear about it. Thanks! Cookbook

Was at the Expat Expo in Zurich yesterday, and found it really helpful in many ways. I was looking for a place that promoted online American products, and was surpised not to find any. Can anyone help? Found some .coms myself, but postage prices are amazinly high. Is there a Swiss company that does this? Steve

I have been looking all over for brown sugar, and can't seem to find it anywhere. All I can find is granulated (not packable.) , and I think that will throw off my recipies. CUsoon
