More than just a cookbook Feb. 28 2008
By Charles David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Travel, cooking, and winter life in Switzerland. Excellent photography and background information. The book includes Christmas in Zürich. Also covered is the burning of the Böögg snowman during the Sechseläuten festival which symbolizes the burning of winter. The book covers everything from cheese to chocolate and includes healthy eating. I really liked the book because it had more than recipes. The photos and travelogue were very interesting. The book is both a coffee table book and a cook book.

Beautiful and inspiring! Jan. 19 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book has beautiful illustrations. It's exactly what I wanted. Of course the subject matter, Switzerland and its food, is always an interesting subject - such a diverse yet united country.
