    We sometimes think that the French and Italians have cornered the market on delicious European-inspired cooking. Sure, they are both incredible types of cuisine! But what about those other countries who also have amazing tastes? I mean, there’s a whole world of FOOD out there, just waiting to be tested and tried! Spanish tapas, German schnitzels, Norwegian salmon, Swedish meatballs…the list goes on and on.

    Take the Swiss. If you’ve ever dipped a fingerling potato into a pot of steamy Swiss fondue, you’ll know what I mean. Oh boy, is that stuff GOOD!

Muesli is basically a mixture of oats, nuts and fruit, soaked in milk all night, which magically transforms it into an instant, nutrient-packed breakfast that will keep you full and happy until lunchtime. Swiss twist on granola!
