Five best luxury Swiss Chocolatiers of Geneva not to be missed.

Switzerland is known for the alpine slopes, snowcapped peaks and the clear waters of the 103 lakes spread across the little mountainous paradise. The very next thing that generally comes to the mind is of course Swiss chocolates. The chocolate was brought to Switzerland in 1679 by Henri Escher, the mayor of Zurich, who had tasted it in Brussels. Now Swiss chocolates are the principle rivals of the famed Belgian ones. The reputation of Swiss chocolates spread across the globe ever since the first chocolate factories opened around the Lake Geneva some 200 years ago.

Creperie Gigi : For your unique crepe experience.

You must have noticed that among all French delicacies, my favorites are the thin, crispy delights, the crepes and galettes. You can even find my own recipe for making the perfect galettes here. Thus among all my restaurant huntings across Paris and elsewhere in France, the creperies top the list. My quest for some of the best French crepes in Paris has taken me through more than half of the arrondissements of Paris, made me taste some smooth, soft, thin and crispy crepes as well as some biscuit like or rag like crepes.

Quiche minute sans pâte : Rapid, easy Quiche

This post is about one of the most popular French snacks, the Quiche. Here in France some consider it as a cake, in fact the Quiche is almost a salty cake, others consider it as a complete meal, served with salad, most like it hot, some warm and some even prefer it cold just like a cake. Well, in all the quiche is something everyone in France who knows how to cook has made at least once, everyone that do not know how to cook has tried making it at least once and for most of the latter group it is quiche that they try out first before moving onto something tougher like Foie gras, rognon, truffe noire et écrasé de pommes de terre…. Ok! Now let us get back to our recipe in question, a quiche, not exactly, it is a simpler rapid version of the French delicacy, a quiche without the crust.
