Potato Leek Soup Recipe

There’s something about curling up with a warm bowl of soup, especially on a snowy winter day. And since we’ve got plenty of snow, we wanted to share with you one of our favorite (and easiest) recipes. Here’s what you’ll need: Here’s what you’ll do: Chop up the leeks, potatoes (bite-sized), onion, garlic, & 6ish strips of bacon–set the leeks and potatoes aside. Throw butter into a pot on medium to high heat, once sizzling, throw bacon, onion, and garlic in. Sauté until soft and golden. Add leeks and potatoes, reduce heat, and cover. Stir every now and then to ensure nothing is sticking to the bottom. Cook for about 20 minutes.

Eating Local: With Kerrin Rousset of MyKugelhopf

Perhaps one of the biggest misunderstandings about Swiss culture is that our food consists only of dried meats and melted cheese.

If you’re like us, you’ll eat far more than the medically-recommended quantity of cheese and meat each year under the guise of eating local and supporting Swiss culture ;). But from time to time, you’ll wish that you could explore the more nuanced side of Swiss cuisine. With the gorgeous farm land and fresh market offerings, there must be more to it, non? For ideas, we turned to some local food bloggers here in Switzerland and asked them
