Dreikönigskuchen

Dreikönigskuchen

Swiss families celebrate the sixth of January, Epiphany, by eating Dreikönigskuchen. This holiday celebrates the three kings finally reaching Bethlehem, and so a small plastic king figurine is baked into the bread. Whoever finds it is king for the day.

Swiffins

Swiffins

In an attempt to mitigate the transition from a warm and rather green November, to full-on, (hopefully snowy) December, I present to you the versatile and festive, yet nontraditional, Swiffin.

The Swiffin is my Swiss version of the delicious British Tiffin, or fridge cake. The Tiffin is perhaps Britain's greatest contribution to the traybake, and so beloved that even the bottom layer of Prince William's wedding cake was made out of fridge cake...

 

Sii

Sii

Sii is a little like bread pudding, only with wine instead of milk. You soak the bread and dried fruit in wine overnight, then mix it together and warm it in some butter. I made two versions: one with Walliser white wine and apricots, and the traditional with red wine and raisins.
