If someone were to ask you what food you associate with Switzerland, chances are that you will think of cheese and chocolate. We all have our own favorites…whether it’s Gruyère or Emmental, Lindt or Toblerone…you can’t beat Swiss cheese or chocolate.

However, there is so much more to Switzerland than its dairy products!  There are terrines from Fribourg, olive oil from Tessin, apple juice from Thurgovie, honeypots from Zürich, and brandy from Valais, indeed the list is endless…Which is why husband and wife team, Alexandra and Guillaume Schleipen have set up their own food store in Lausanne to showcase the many and varied culinary delights of all 26 cantons within Switzerland.

Bringing everything together

Guillaume told knowitall.ch, “Eight years ago, my wife and I met at the Ecole Hotelière de Lausanne, where we soon discovered we had a mutual passion for food; we simply loved discovering the specialties of the regions we visited all over the world. After we left the hotel school, my wife used to work a lot on the Swiss-German side of Switzerland, and would bring home lots of specialties from this region, which we had never seen before. And it wasn’t just us, our neighbours were equally astonished at the many different types of food my wife would show them! When it comes to food, the “Röstigraben” cultural boundary that many people joke about between the French and German speaking parts of Switzerland has certainly had a divisive effect !”

A traditional Mongolian yurt has recently been installed in the park of the Hôtel du Léman in Jongny, Vaud.

The new yurt will offer guests a unique gastronomic experience, in a tranquil setting at the gates of Lavaux, overlooking Lake Geneva.  

With its luxurious array of shimmering colors, and perfect “cocoon-like” sound proofing, the yurt makes an ideal location for anyone looking to celebrate a birthday with family or friends, organize an aperitif with colleagues, or run a motivational evening for their sports team!  Measuring up to 50m2, the yurt can accommodate up to 35 people at a time.

On the menu is a special 3-course dinner, proposed by chef Laurent Omphalius and priced at Fr. 85.- per person, which includes chestnut soup (served in the cauldron outside, weather permitting), a meat or fish-based Mongolian fondue, with rice noodles and julienne vegetables. The homemade dessert is a mouth-watering combination of pineapple and coconut rolls with lychee sorbet.
