Possibly the most famous Swiss German word in the world is the one above – I refuse to even type it again.

It’s lovely that I have some cupboards in my kitchen which my Swiss Meitli can hide in... Each girl weighs over 20 kilos, which is no problem thanks to the fact my kitchen was made by my good Swiss friend Andy.

Made out of Swiss birch and Swiss granite, it’s the engine, soul and heart of our home.

Can you say "Chuchichäschtli"?
