Torta di pane: made from old bread

The celebrated torta di pane is made from old bread and is a favourite speciality in the Sopraceneri region. What was once a way of using up leftovers has become a dessert masterpiece, which in its finest incarnations can also contain amaretti biscuits, almonds, raisins, nuts, marsala, rum and a shot of grappa.

Plain in pigna: "oven rösti"

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.

Gerstensuppe: full of goodness

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.

Pinot noir: blue-blooded character

With its 36 hectares, the city of Lausanne is the leading public owner of vineyards in Switzerland. The vines of the Domaine de la Ville are cultivated in integrated production, and since 1803, the fine Pinot noir grapes have been auctioned publicly on the second Saturday in December in the Town Hall. The resulting top-class wines are also available at many top restaurants.
