When I first moved to Switzerland in 2010, I started a Hidden Dinner Club. It was a heartfelt effort to discover good food, good wine, and good company when I moved to Switzerland in 2010. I had a few events, but then I got a real job and I just let it dissipate into oblivion.
Well– I’m back! I thought I might consolidate some of my websites into one and see what I could offer from one place. I consolidated everything onto this site–my personal blog: YukonJen in Switzerland. I’ve been blogging there since 2005 (personal stories, life events, a few articles I wrote for some online magazines, and more recently, favourite recipes for my family).
Now, I will be blogging even more here. I have plenty planned:
Know your food? Know your producers!
- I researched all the places you can subscribe to a fresh vegetable basket in Suisse Romande and made a map. I plan to publish that next week.
- I researched where you could buy meat direct from the producer in Vaud & Fribourg. From venison, to beef, wild boar, and even turkey (which will be handy for Thanksgiving!). That blog post is coming soon too!
- I will be profiling local producers of food (wine, chocolate, baked goods, growers, you name it). If you have anybody you want me to profile, just let me know. Send me an email, or talk to me in Facebook.
Tours & events
- I will be hosting organized dining events in interesting places (I’ll pick up where I left off at the Hidden Dinner Club). I am planning these private events in very public, but hidden places. Hidden in plain site you might say.
- Also, I am organizing different tours and tastings. I’m starting with a brewery tour (in English) of our local brewery in Bossonnens: Boss Beer. (Save the date: 07 June 2019). I’ll also be offering a weekly hike and tastings in the Lavaux.
- Partnering with a local atelier-cuisine, we will be offering cooking classes. Classes on how to make traditional Swiss breads or how to take your apèro to the next level with both classic and Swiss cocktails. I am still in the midst of organizing this, but it will come. Stay tuned for the details.
…and so much more.
I am eager to get started.
KEEP IN TOUCH!
Every so often, I’ll send an email newsletter. Not every day. Not every week. Just once a month or so. If you are interested in the events or tours, you might want to subscribe to my newsletter. I’ll be announcing them first with an email. Subscribe below.
