LIVING IN THE KNOW PODCAST - MARCH 2018
Lisa and Catherine discuss where to source expat products in French-speaking Switzerland - from hunting out American "Texas Pete’s Chicken Wing Sauce" to "Lyle’s Golden Syrup” from Britain, they name shops and websites where you can find such products. They also chat about whether we should simply adapt to the food in the country we live in and forget about buying expat food stuffs, or whether it's still OK to taste a bit of “home" from time to time. In Lisa’s French minute, she teaches Catherine an expression which means “here we go again”. Click here to listen.
