Christmas in Switzerland

Flavors of Switzerland

Switzerland is a food lover's delight from one canton to the next. However, there is no need to wait for Christmas Eve - in Lucerne on December 6, during celebrations of the feast of St. Nicholas, you can enjoy biscômes, little round spice cakes made with crème fraîche and pear molasses.

The rustic simplicity of the cuisine of the Appenzell canton is evident in its substantial Christmas honey cake, made with 200 g of liquid honey for each 500 g of wholewheat flour, spiced with a pinch of cinnamon, cloves and cardamom.
