The Chinese New Year, Its origins are steeped in legend. One story says that a monster called Nian (“Year”) attacked village populations at the beginning of each year.
Nian was afraid of loud noises, bright lights, and the color red. People used these things to scare the beast away.
That’s why we wanted to join in this great celebration, where one more year we gather to celebrate the beginning of a year full of hope.
In the year of the tiger, it is said that children born in this year will be brave, competitive, and strong.
Do you know what year you were born? (You can check it at the end of the publication).
We enjoyed opening the fortune biscuits to find out the best auguries for 2022.
In the middle of the Swiss winter, we received a warm visit from the Mauritian chefs, from this island in southeast Africa they brought us flavors of spiced meat, caramelized onions, and other vegetables. Vegetarian samosas were also on the menu.
Many thanks to all the chefs who visit us every Wednesday at our international diner, we really enjoyed discovering other cultures thanks to the food.
What could be better than a good brunch on a Sunday morning, sharing a good chat with friends while enjoying all the delicacies you can imagine, getting the strength for fun activities, or relaxing to get ready for the week ahead?
Saturday evening we were able to taste in our dining room an authentic Swiss fondue, with lots of cheese, boiled potatoes, bread, pickles.
A wonderful way to get a taste of the local culture is, without a doubt, with its gastronomy.
“Fondue isch guet und git e gueti Luune” in Swiss German means ‘fondue is good and creates a good mood’, we really believe this to be true, everyone who has tried it says they loved it.
Today we were visited by Mexican chefs, filling the dining hall with colour, smell and taste!
There was a great atmosphere in the dining hall, lots of sombreros, flags, and laughter as you can see with our Champ de Bois student, Liam, a real mariachi!
On the menu, chicken and beef tacos, pico de gallo, guacamole, and other Mexican treats.
Variety is always one of the best qualities of our buffet, so that everyone eats what they prefer, tries new things and enjoys the food every day.
Today, in addition to rice, cereals, and pulses, we could choose between a salmon dish, a beef taco, or a vegetable toast with cheese. All of them are spectacular!
Also, as always, a variety of salads and a delicious dessert.
We are very happy to welcome you back to our dining room, we hope you have all been able to enjoy your favorite food at home or try new dishes on a trip.
But now the dining hall is open again, today the chefs have prepared some tasty hot dogs, with vegetable side dishes, croquettes, and samosas, nothing was missing!
