Alpine Macaroni

Known to the Swiss as Alplermagrone, is the ultimate comfort food one can find on the slopes of the famous Alps. This dish is found everywhere on restaurant menus from Appenzell to Zermatt, through Lugano and St. Moritz.

This Swiss version of Macaroni and cheese is best eaten after a long hike or trek, as most Swiss will tell you, it tastes better when you’ve earned it. But staying at home- keeping yourself and others away from harm’s way, it is safe to say that we have earned it.

Cheese Fondue

If you have your air conditioners on then this taste of Switzerland is just right for you. Indulge in some fondue, a generous dose of creamy cheese with the pieces of bread just like the Swiss do. The country is known for its best fondues, however, there are many different styles and versions. One of the best variations is the Fribourg, the moitie-moitie, made from spicy Gruy�res and softly melting Vacherin cheeses.

It’s great for a Saturday night cheat meal? Melt up the cheese and serve it with vegetables, lavash, croutons and potato wedges, giving it an interesting twist while you binge watch on your favourite shows.

Rosti

Also known as “Rostigraben” (Rosti ditch), originally a farmers’ breakfast from German-speaking Switzerland, is now a Swiss national dish with each region having its own version. The Bernese, for example, are known for their crispy Rosti fried in butter.

This classic comfort food is surprisingly easy to make, with some tricks along the way, and it turns potatoes into a main meal. The recipe can be summarized in five words: grate potatoes sauteed in butter. The resulting dish is a pancake of potato, crispy brown on the outside, gooey, buttery, potato-licious inside. This is a dish that is easy-peasy to create in your kitchens for a lazy Sunday brunch.

Meringue

A sweet kiss with egg whites and a sugary pastry invented around the year 1600. Since the delicate and airy pastry made from egg whites and the thick battered Gruyeres cream complement each other so well, one easily understands why Meringue is a favorite dessert in the land of Fribourg. You can enjoy your meringue in two ways one slowly baked, transforming into crisp cookies or as dessert on top of a cake. (IANS)
