Life in Switzerland may seem much slower compared to many parts of the world.
But even here, many are craving for a simpler and less hectic lifestyle. When it comes to food, knowing the origin of what is on our plates has become ever more important. Needless to say, the slow food movement is no longer a niche and has established itself in Switzerland.
Slow Food Market at Messe Zürich
This November, Zürich is once again hosting the popular Slow Food Market. More than 200 vendors, with a majority being local Swiss, will be showcasing their products at Messe Zürich. On their sampler plates, expect delicacies from various Swiss regions, such as alpine cheese, dried meat, crispy bread or homemade pasta.
In line with the slow food philosophy, this is a good time to talk to the shop keepers. Ask them about the history and philosophy behind their products and be sure to tick off some Christmas presents from your shopping list… Beside the slow food market, there will be a cooking studio featuring live sessions with renowned Relais & Châteaux chefs.
