Knowitall.ch often invites local experts in their field to contribute to their own blogs on our site. This means not only you will benefit from the useful recommendations that we make on our News pages, but you can also profit from some of the great advice and tips that these experts have to make on their favorite subjects. Whilst each of these bloggers has been recommended to us at some point during the evolution of Know-it-all passport and  knowitall.ch, obviously we are not able to test out all the suggestions they make on their blogs, nor do we necessarily agree with all their opinions.  So if you do find one of their tips useful (or not!), do let us know!

To make these blogs more accessible to you, we have now decided to group them altogether in one section, entitled Guest Blogs, accessible from our main menu bar.  We will also post the most recent blogs on the home page of our site in the right hand column.

We are still building up this area of the site, and are looking for bloggers in a number of sections, including Your Home, Travel, and Leisure, so if you feel you have a useful contribution to make in either of these areas, and have the time to submit blog entries approximately every month, then please get in touch!

  • Gavin Clutterbuck
    Local chef, building a new seminar and teaching center based around food.

Gavin ClutterbuckKnowitall.ch has teamed up with local chef, Gavin Clutterbuck, to provide you with some interesting insights and useful tips for cooking in this region.

Having started his working career as a pot washer and vegetable chopper in a Tex-Mex style restaurant in Scotland, Gavin spent the next twelve years working his way up to head chef in kitchens and galleys around the world.  Some of these were large, most were small, and many were very hot and cramped – all great experience for a master chef!    Gavin’s experience also extends to working on yachts and in private ski chalets, catering to a select and often demanding clientele.  

Currently taking a sabbatical from his cooking business, ‘Chex’, Gavin is now making plans with his wife to develop the next stage of his business.  Together, they are transforming an old sawmill on their land into a seminar and teaching center where they will be able to offer a broader range of facilities and services than was possible at the previous ‘Chex’ location in Geneva.  

Plans are afoot to expand their current vegetable garden so that a large proportion of their produce will be home grown.  The majority of their other produce will also be sourced locally. The venue will be licensed for a maximum of 50 people, and will offer a wide range of new courses, including traditional local cuisine.

In addition to catering for strategy sessions, company off-sites and training courses, the center aims to provide team building courses where participants cook dinner together at the end of the day. Other ideas being considered are music courses, spa retreats, children’s cooking and gardening courses, and guided bike tours. If all goes according to plan, Chex should reopen for business mid 2012 - watch this space!

The following article is the first in what is hoped to be a series of articles that will be provided by Gavin in this section of the website. Please contact Gavin by email at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any food questions or suggestions for future topics.

rosabioRosa Mayland, the creator of Rosa’s Yummy Yums, lives in a small Geneva countryside village situated in the French speaking part of Switzerland - a few meters away from the French border. She’s an Anglo-Swiss food enthusiast who loves photography, loud rock or electronic music, walks in the countryside, meeting interesting people, cats, books and independent films. When she’s not writing for her blog, you’ll also find her over at The Rambling Epicure, a daily international food chronicle and online newspaper to which she contributes as a freelance writer.

As you can imagine, she is very passionate about cooking/baking and can spend hours surfing the net for inspiration, reading blogs, creating dishes, testing new recipes or going through cookbooks and magazines. She is crazy about flavorful and soul-uplifting grubs, spices and yummy textures, therefore she’s particularly fond of Asian, Caribbean, Mediterranean, South American, Middle Eastern delights as well as regional and traditional specialities!

Rosa has kindly agreed to let us post some of the recipes from her blog on knowitall.ch.  Each month we will feature a new dish from her site, but due to space limitations we will only publish the recipes listed in each blog entry. However, you MUST click on the link provided with each recipe to read for yourself the inspiration behind each of the dishes prepared by Rosa and to see the wonderful collection of photos accompanying each dish.  Many of these photos have been taken at locations in and around Geneva - see if you can work out where they have been taken!

  • Dean Marriott
    Dean works as an actor, voice-over artist, and onscreen presenter. In his quest for leisure activities, Dean keeps one key thought in mind: if Shakespeare’s words are true and ‘All the world's a stage’, we shouldn’t have to look far in order to be entertained.  We just have to make the time to appreciate it. If you are searching for an element of entertainment in your leisure pursuits and have a desire to look beyond the obvious, then Dean will use his artistic eye to point you in the right direction. 

  • Nicola Ogilvie
    Through her business, Just Sew, Nicola shares her passion for sewing with a new generation. She runs workshops, mostly for children, and teaches in the after-school program of a local international school.

  • Yvette Evers
    As the founder of "fraiche air", a local club providing opportunities for outdoor recreation and tourism in English, Yvette has hundreds of ideas for exploring the region including activities such as hiking, showshoeing, powerwalks, ski-touring and family days.

  • Lisa Gibson
    Originally from South Africa, Lisa moved to Switzerland in 2011 with her fiancé. Currently based in Lausanne, she's a freelance and feature writer who started her personal blog as a means of documenting her travels (both in Switzerland and around the rest of Europe) and as a way to share the expat experience with friends and family back home. The saying “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” could not be more true for her.

yvettebiophoto new3Yvette Evers grew up camping, hiking and skiing in the Swiss Alps. A Canadian with Dutch roots, her career in international development allowed her to explore mountain areas around the world. Since moving to the Geneva area in 2009 with her husband and two teenage daughters, she also works as a sustainability consultant specialising in tourism.

Yvette is the founder of ‘fraiche air’ - an outdoor club that fills a gap in the market for global locals who are looking for information about outdoor recreation and tourism in English. The outings in small groups provide a wonderful opportunity to discover new activities and join an active community of like-minded sporty friends – powerwalks, hiking, snowshoeing, ski-touring, and family days.

The following article is the first in a series of articles on outdoor leisure activities that will be provided by Yvette in this section of the website.

Dean-Marriott-Photo-200

Dean Marriott was born in London and educated in the UK and Germany.  He retired from a career in finance, aged 33, and subsequently retrained as an actor and teacher.  From an early age, his passion for languages and the arts has underpinned both his professional and social lives.  In his quest for leisure activities, Dean keeps one key thought in mind: if Shakespeare’s words are true and ‘All the world's a stage’, we shouldn’t have to look far in order to be entertained.  We just have to make the time to appreciate it.  

If you are searching for an element of entertainment in your leisure pursuits and have a desire to look beyond the obvious, then Dean will use his artistic eye to point you in the right direction.  

Dean left Switzerland in July 2017 and is currently studying towards a Masters in Film Directing in Berlin, although he is still managing to squeeze in some acting, where possible.

nicola220Nicola Ogilvie has been sewing as long as she can remember, and loves new challenges. From a very early age, she has attempted most things you can make on a sewing machine, from creating her own wedding dress and recovering a chair to quilting and embroidery. In her early career, she was employed by Courtaulds, working in a factory making underwear for Marks & Spencer!

Through her sewing business, Just Sew, Nicola now shares her passion with a new generation. She runs workshops, mostly for children, and teaches in the after-school program of a local international school. She loves the fact that even the youngest get a great sense of satisfaction from their completed projects. After a number of requests, she will soon be offering courses aimed at adults.

Although sewing is clearly Nicola’s thing, she admires all craftsmen and women, and loves to see how people use their creativity.

Originally from South Africa, Lisa Gibson moved to Switzerland in 2011 with her fiancé and has enjoyed every minute of this adventure. Currently based in Lausanne, she's a freelance and feature writer. She started her personal blog as a means of documenting her travels (both in Switzerland and around the rest of Europe) and as a way to share the expat experience with friends and family back home.
 
Lisa's love for Switzerland goes back to when she first visited as a teenager more than 15 years ago - so living here has been like a childhood dream come true! As an adult, her love affair with Switzerland continues… she loves exploring the region and discovering the lesser-known gems, often not mentioned in the tourism brochures.
 
The saying “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer” could not be more true for her.
