Vaud sausages: heavenly

Several famous and much-loved sausages originated in the Lake Geneva Region. The best known is the saucisson vaudois, but no less popular is the saucisse aux choux, made with cabbage. The boutefas meanwhile, which can weigh as much as a whopping 2 kilograms, is a monument to the sausage-maker's art.

Züpfe: Sunday special

Bern's traditional Sunday bread is Züpfe, an ornate plaited loaf that has its origins in traditional farmers' cuisine. It is made of bread dough with added butter and milk: exactly how much has been a matter of dispute among bakers since time immemorial. One thing is essential, however: a coating of egg yolk, to give the loaf its characteristic golden colour. As well as forming part of a substantial brunch on Sundays, the Bernese Züpfe is traditionally enjoyed as part of the New Year's Day celebrations.
