Product Description


Drawing from her long experience of and affection for Switzerland, cookbook expert Nika Hazelton explains the basic elements of Swiss cooking as it is understood and practised in Swiss homes. Her 'lessons' include such necessities as complete directions for 'au bleu' fish cookery, for making superb dumplings or Swiss pasts, for plain or fancy Fondue in all its variations, and for roasting veal in the Swiss manner. The book's 250 recipes, gathered over many years from peasants, housewives, and chefs through history, cover the range of home cooking, from appetisers to desserts. Included are such delights as Heidi's Devil's Dip, Gypsy Salad, Farina-Cheese Souffle, Minced Veal Bellevoir, and Apfelbroisi. This classic guide to Swiss cuisine, originally published by Atheneum, is sure to prove a favourite to today's cook as well. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Very Enjoyable 27 Mar. 2000
By "amccullough" - Published on
Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this cookbook because it features a lot of authentic Swiss food. I worked in the area when I was in college and this book contains recipes for many of the dishes I enjoyed. This cookbook was originally published about 30 years ago, so some of the preparation styles are a bit dated. The food is delicious, but the fat content can be high.

Swiss Cookbook 19 Aug. 2003
By JLS - Published on
Format: Paperback
For anyone who loves Switzerland, this is not only a cookbook but a beautifully written tribute to that lovely country. Although it was published in 1967, most of the almost lyrical observations are still valid because the Swiss hold to their traditions steadfastly. It is an authentic description of the countryside, the Swiss and the cooking of that most charming place.

The Swiss "CookBook" 27 Aug. 2011
By Bruce MAC - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is not only a wonderful compilation of Swiss recipes, but is a very interesting view into the "Swiss" mind & culture in the 1970's!
my comment would be "Das ist Ausgezichnet!!!"

Swiss Cookbook by Nika Hazelton 13 Sept. 2005
By S. E. Pfaendler - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was so pleased to purchase three copies of my well-used cookbook, containing many family favorites, for my daughters! Since I believed my (signed) hardback copy was no longer available after so long, finding the softcover version online was a delight.
