Thanks for your rating
Ham, bacon, spare ribs, knuckle of pork, marrowbone, sauerkraut, beans, potatoes: the Berner Platte ("Bernese platter") is a gourmet feast whose creation can be dated precisely: to 5 March 1798. On this date, the Bernese defeated the French army at Neuenegg, and to celebrate, held a great feast. Everyone brought whatever they had – and the Berner Platte was born. And thankfully, it still exists today.
