This is turning into a bit of a foodie week on the blog, because last night I went to the Academy at Mosimann’s for an evening of Swiss food to celebrate the launch of Graubünden’s new Exclusively Pure campaign.
The Academy is actually a cookery school, but a chef had been flown in specially from St Moritz to feed us. He made us the most exquisite delicacies to taste: Bündnerfleisch (air-dried beef) served with crostini
roast beef (unbelievably tender, cooked with rosemary) served with Swiss-style gnocchi (made with flour instead of potato) and fresh cranberries…
and yummy little caramelised nut pies. Plus a selection of Swiss wine.
It was absolutely delicious.
We also had the pleasure of meeting Philip Mosimann (who very impressively ran the marathon on Sunday) and told us all about Mosimann’s programme to help underprivileged youngsters get into cooking.
The evening really whetted my appetite for Graubünden – as you know I’m a big fan of Switzerland but I haven’t been to this area yet. To find out more about what kind of holiday there would suit you best, and for your chance to win a holiday there, click here.
Oh good Lord, it all looks divine. If you discover the recipes do pop another post up…!
Reminds me of when Auntie Eileen joined me for lunch at Mosimann’s.
