Gerstensuppe: full of goodness
Engadin St. Moritz – Graubünden's celebrated barley soup evolved here hundreds of years ago; it also contains many other ingredients including bacon and beans. Now regarded as a delicacy, it is even served at gourmet restaurants such as Jöhri's Talvo.
Plain in pigna: "oven rösti"
Engadin St. Moritz – This dish belongs to the Engadine just like the sunshine and the snow. Made with chopped potato and meat, it is baked in a wood-fired oven over glowing embers until crisp: a rustic, old-fashioned dish that brings long-forgotten flavours to the palate.
Capuns: wrapped and filled
Engadin St. Moritz – The art of wrapping vegetables and meat in chard leaves is one that the cooks of Graubünden have mastered superbly. As demonstrated by capuns, which have evolved from a simple farmers' dish to a delicacy. Every family, every village, every valley has its own recipe. And each one is, of course, the best!
Engadine walnut cake
Engadin St. Moritz – "Fuatscha grassa" is the name that the people of the Engadine give to the sweet shortcrust pastry with which they make their famous Engadine walnut cake. But it is the filling that is truly memorable: walnuts, honey, caramel and cream. Engadine confectioners who worked in Italy, France and America in the 18th century are said to have brought the recipe home, perfecting it here. Today, Engadine walnut cake is one of the gastronomic icons of Graubünden, a Swiss culinary classic that is exported all over the world.
