In and Out of My Swiss Kitchen

In this blog I make simple recipes which most the time are health conscious (I say most of the time because a bit of indulgence is essential in life). I take my inspiration from either ingredients or recipes which come from Switzerland. Over time I my interest over my country has increased so I want to explore my country through its food, products, history and the people behind them.

I love experimenting in my kitchen but outside there are so many things to try taste and learn about. Once or twice a month I get out and explore Switzerland through food. I want to learn, share my experiences and enjoy moments with people around a table, a food stand or in any other occasion. I found an infinity of gastronomic activities which range from tasting sessions, to food festivals, gastronomic walks, museums and visits to local producers.

My name is Fanny Reggiori and I live in Ticino, the Italian speaking region of Switzerland. In the past I have lived and studied in different cities and European countries but I came back to my birthplace a few years ago. Life in the country is different from where I lived as a student, so my interests have shifted from shopping, art and history to food, popular events and history (I have not fully abandoned the shopping part). Food is a passion not only because I love eating but also because it comprehends historical, cultural and social aspects. I hope you enjoy my posts and in case you wish to have information or want to propose some Swiss events I shouldn’t miss, please let me know.

  1. Hello Fanny, I came across your blog via a comment you left on Maya Oryan’s website..on her 3 mustard lamb chops. You mentioned in the comment that you find it hard to get english mustard in your region. Well, I just wanted to say that I would happily send u a little jar..free of charge. I have already done this for a family I met in Slovenia, as when I shared my personal stash ( as I was traveling) they told me they loved it, and so I had some sent out for them. I have already told myself that when I get back to london ( in just over a week from now), I will learn a new dish every week. I’m sure to steal some of your recipes, and this could be like a little thankyou in return….if you would like, that is!

    • Thanks you Mark! This would really be great. In case you try out some of my posted recipes, I hope you will like them. In case, as an exchange, if you want/need some product from Switzerland, I would be glad to return the favour.

      PS: Very nice pictures…I’m also a dreamer πŸ˜‰

  2. Hello Fanny! How nice to meet you! πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by my blog so I could discover yours! It’s great to meet a fellow Swiss, I am from the German part of Switzerland (Thurgau), but before moving to the US (where I live now), I used to live in Zurich for over 8 years. So great to learn more about Swiss cuisine, because actually, I know how to cook very few Swiss dishes!! But there are so many good ones of them! hugs & keep in touch! Sylvia

    • Hi Sylvia! Nice to meet you too! Nice blog you have going. Hehehe, what a nice coincidence that you are also from Switzerland too! πŸ™‚ – I hope you enjoy the US, I almost moved there once too. You’re right, in CH we have a lot of delicious foods… and in all regions. I also limit my Swiss food intake bacause generally it’s quite nutritious… and summer is coming up ;).
      Great to meet you Sylvia and it will be a pleasure to keep in touch!

  3. Hello, Fanny–I went to school many many years ago at the university in Fribourg. The experience changed my life in many ways, but one of the primary ones was how to eat. I had so many things for the first time in Fribourg! Anyway, I look forward to reading your posts. Ken

    • Hello Ken, I remember you telling me about studying in Fribourg. I love this town, I was actually there a few months ago. Great to hear that it taught you how to eat… as a student it’s not always evident. Can I ask you how you came to chose Fribourg? By the way thank you for leaving such a nice comment πŸ™‚

  4. Hi Fanny! I grew up in CH as well (Brig, VS). But, I’ve married an Italo Americano 😊 and I’ve been living in CA for the last 20 yrs!! I always loved my Swiss foods…so, I was quite excited to stumble upon your blog! Lovely recipes!!

    • Hi Marisa, thanks for stopping by and commenting. It’s great to know you an expat originally from Brig… we actually stopped there and had a lovely lunch a couple of weeks ago on our way back to Ticino. I actually would be curious to know whether you still cook Swiss dishes in you in your new home land?
      By the way thanks for the compliment, it’s encouraging πŸ™‚
