Engadine walnut cake

"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.

La longeole: a supreme sausage

The people of Geneva love their longeole – the most packed and substantial of all Swiss sausages. It is made with gelatinous pork and flavoured with a spice mixture containing fennel seeds. This monumental sausage must be simmered for three hours before being served – traditionally with boiled potatoes and lentils. It is especially popular during the colder months – and is of course an essential feature of Geneva's famous Escalade festivities, when the aroma of Geneva longeole wafts up from every street corner.
