Hello Foodies! Here's a bit of an update about our activities in October. It's been that kind of month. School. Kids. Holidays. Where did you go? What did you see? Taste? Experience? Make sure to share in the Foodies in Switzerland Facebook group

Here is a summary of what's been going on at EdibleSwitzerland. 


We planned for a Harvest dinner in the vineyards. We had it all ready! But alas, it must have been the wrong date to entice you ... even though the weather would have been PERFECT! With not enough signups to warrant renting the winery space, we pivoted to a quiet, intimate chef's dinner. 

Rolf came down from Suisse Allemand for the day. We enjoyed spending time with him and understanding his sourcing and cooking philosophy. He teaches a course called Food Geography at his school where the students learn about sustainable food supply chains (a concept he has developed at each place he has worked (including Japan, Shanghai, and Malaysia).  He brought two cheeses he makes with his students at school. He brought meringues he claims are the original recipe of the original meringues made in Meiringen (their namesake). 

We shared an evening of conversations and stories. We were a mixed crowd..sometimes that is exactly what you need to shake things up. It was a lovely evening. I really enjoyed meeting everybody. And showing off our vintage dinnerware (more on that below). 


This year, we’ve teamed up with Yves Branchi of the Swiss Craft Spirits Festival to create a special, limited edition of a very BOOZY Foodie advent calendar. 25 days to discover 25 different artisan Swiss-produced spirits including different gins, whiskies, rum liquors, fruit brandies, absinthe, vodka, and vermouth. Each day will have a 2 cl bottle with a different spirit inside. You’ll also find a wee story card about the craft distiller and where to buy more. Even better---the cards are in ENGLISH 🙂 :  a special effort I made to help you understand the variety easier. 

You have the option of buying just the contents and making your own calendar with your own special packaging. Or for a small fee, I can assemble it for you and all you have to do is hang it up!  I have a limited supply and will be taking orders until 21 Nov 2022. 


We've teamed up with professional leadership educator and facilitator Jacqui Coward to offer a veritable menu of team building experiences, activities, and team retreats retreats. Enjoy the season and festivities with your team. Leave the logistics to us. Added bonus, Jacqui will add and facilitate the intention of building stronger teams, no matter what fun activitiy you choose. 

We have started a list of team building activities here, but it is by no means complete! Add more fun like a snowshoe and chocolate workshop, a cocktail making class with maple syrup, or learn to make the perfect espresso with a barista and coffee roaster. ... we're compiling them all!

Jacqui is an education and leadership professional, with a strong foundation in developing leadership strategies, adult education programs, and assessing corporate culture across a variety of diverse environments. She has successfully built education and leadership programs in a variety of organizations including non-profits, government, corporations, universities, international schools, small businesses, and technology start-ups across a range of industries and countries.


Are you planning a few festive events this year? Want to save time on washing dishes? Maybe you don't have space to store larger party platters or drink dispensers.

You can rent our vintage collections from our foodies dining events. It's not official yet, but it's part of us helping people become zero-waste. We want to make anything we use at our main events available for you to use so you don't use disposable settings or don't have to buy bigger items yourself (like charcuterie boards or drinking stations).

Also, if you work in a workplace that is planning to host an apéro or special gathering this season AND you know they are planning to use disposables, feel free to mention it to them too. We are really happy to help local enterprises reduce & reuse. 

Let me know what you think of this newsletter. What would you like to hear about? Just hit reply and let me know. 

See you soon! 
Big fat foodie hugs,
