Zigerhöräli

Zigerhöräli

Unless you grew up in Switzerland, you probably have no idea what Schabziger is. However, if you did, you probably have only one of two reactions to it: disgust, or unbridled passion.

Schabziger is unique to Glarus, one of Switzerland's smallest cantons. It has the honour of being Switzerland's oldest protected brand and is perhaps the most polarising cheese in Switzerland's culinary canon. 

Älplermagronen

Älplermagrone

Älplermagrone (or Magronä, depending on your dialect) is the Swiss version of mac and cheese. Much like the differences in dialect, the dish varies from region to region and debate rages on: what sort of cheese? Apple sauce or plum compote?  Fried cervelat, yes or no? (Is this really a question?) Crispy or sweet onions? 

I say, the more delicious add ons, the better.
