Käsknöpfle: a dish for all seasons

Traditional Käsknöpfle – tiny golden cheese dumplings – are almost the national dish of neighbouring Liechtenstein. Freshly made, they are typically served accompanied by spicy grated cheese, crisp fried onions and fresh apple sauce. The dish invariably goes down well – whether enjoyed on a sunny terrace in summer, or in front of an open fire in winter.

Bloderchäs: sour but good

Schlorziflade, Haselbeizonne, Fenz: quirkily named dishes and foodstuffs are one of the hallmarks of Eastern Switzerland. Another such is Bloderchäs: a low-fat cheese made in the regions of Toggenburg, Werdenberg and Liechtenstein from curdled milk ("Blodermilch" in the local dialect) without the addition of rennet. It goes well with local Rhine valley corn, Knöpfli (cheese dumplings) or potatoes.

Linth corn: exceptional taste

Linth corn is a wholegrain corn: the entire kernel is ground, complete with husk and germ. It therefore retains its full content of vitamins and minerals, and because its fat content is higher, it has a particularly rich flavour. As well as the customary corn dishes, it is also used to make beer, whisky and bread.
