Geneva Region – These pastry cases filled with pear compote are a Geneva speciality, traditionally prepared at home by families over the Christmas period. For the filling, a special variety of pear is used – the poire à rissole – which makes these treats especially fruity, juicy and sweet.
Culinary highlights – "Riesling soup" from Schaffhausen is no ordinary starter. This king among soups is made with bouillon, leeks, potatoes, butter and cream – and the finest Riesling-Sylvaner wine from the vineyards of the Schaffhausen region. It tastes best with a dollop of cream on top: sublime!
