WSJ: In Search Of – Switzerland’s Best Fondue

Switzerland has 26 cantons and four languages, but one dish unites everyone: fondue. Bread chunks dipped in a pot of hot cheese has been a national dish since the 1930s. Christina Passariello has details on The News Hub.

Size is not Switzerland’s main asset. If the country were a U.S. state, it would rank 42nd in size, right between West Virginia and Maryland. The drive between its two biggest cities, Zurich in the northeast and Geneva in the southwest corner, takes just three picturesque hours, past church steeples, rolling green hills and thousands of long-lashed cows. Homogeneity doesn’t rank high, either. A melting pot of cultures, Switzerland has 26 cantons and four languages jammed into its territory.

I'm trying to keep a log of all the things we cook which taste really lovely. You know what it's like: you tweak and tweak a recipe until it's barely recognisable and then wonder how you used to make it. And it will also save a lot of time and bits of paper when it comes to sharing those recipes with friends.
