My mum is Swiss and I was raised partially there. Still, I can't think of much in the way of purely Swiss, home-cookery. Plenty of Swiss things that are manufactured foods, like sausages and cheeses, but not a whole lot of Swiss home-cooking. Um... Swiss macaroni and cheese, I guess? It's basically macaroni and cheese with ham, potatoes, wine-caramelised onions and either Appenzeller, Emmentaler and/or Gruyère cheeses tossed together, topped with béchamel sauce and more cheese then baked until heated through and gooey. Also fondue, obviously. And rösti. That's really kind of it, tbqhwy.
>>7261158 what about the flour soup from bâle (mehlsuppe) or raclette, or capunz or pizzokeri or rösti with liver or whatnot. you may have issues getting the right ingredients abroad without spending a fortune.
>>7261183 >pizzoccheri Italian, but also eaten in Switzerland, true.
>raclette or sausage, ham, bacon and sauerkraut Manufactured stuff, though.
>bâle soup I've a decent recipe for that, but I didn't think others would want to eat something like that. When you tell foreigners that you toast flour in the oven for like an hour and the soup is based heavily on that, they look at you as though you've got two heads.
>>7261298 >define roux Flour browned in fat using a pan. I don't know about you, but whenever I've seen recipes for flour soup, the flour is toasted in the oven, dry with no added fat. Then whisked into the stock a little at a time.
>>7263768 it was pushed by the army years ago as there was too much milk and cheese on the market (->cheap). the men went home after their duty and told their wifes to cook it (the good old times..). basically fondue is a french invention. the farmers in haute savoie melted cheese with wine and scooped the sauce with stale bread.
but that is only cheese fondue, there are more varieties (burginionne: hot oil and meat; chinoise: hot buillon and meat and of course chocolate and fruit, etc)

>>7265302 >BS is faggot swiss german I know! I'm >>7261158 My mother's from Zürich. I grew up speaking that sort of Swiss German but when I started school, I stopped speaking it so regularly and kind of lost most of it with time. Still, I can understand it, even now. Even if I respond in normal German, all of my cousins and other family will speak in Swiss German to me. And people from other parts of Switzerland, I can understand them, too. But when I went to Basel on a lark, I was just fucking lost when trying to listen in on locals' conversations. I didn't know that they would speak so differently to what I'm used to.
