Food & drink Swiss food presents variety of options inspired by cuisines from different countries. The whole of Switzerland is heavily focused on dairy so different kinds of chesses are very popular. Local dishes depend greatly on the region based on the predominant language but there are some dishes you can find throughout Switzerland. Zurich is influenced by German culture. Specialities Bircherműesli: Zurich is the birthplace for muesli, developed around 1900 by Swiss physician Maximilian Bircher-Benner who wanted to provide more nutritious meals to his patients. Swiss Cheese: The tradition goes back over 2,000 years. Today the Swiss are making more than 100 kinds of cheese and each area has its own type. You can explore it by visiting one of many cheese dairy tours. Fondue: Melted cheese (either Gruyère or Emmental), served with bread. It is usually mixed with white wine, lemon juice, garlic and flour. You can also add your own ingredients, for example mushrooms, herbs or tomatoes. Swiss chocolate: Even though today chocolate and Switzerland are almost like synonyms, the country started to gain its chocolate reputation only in the second half of the 19th century. Swiss industry pioneers used mechanical powers to start mass production and dominate the growing chocolate market. Switzerland is particularly known for its milk chocolate developed by Daniel Peter.
