If you’re visiting Switzerland for the mountains and scenery, don’t forget to indulge in the many unique culinary options available. Here are some of the top foods to try:

2. Papet Vaudois: Another culinary classic, Papet Vaudois is a savory, earthy delicacy that combines sausage with a stew of leeks and potatoes.

3. Raclette: One of the tastiest cheeses to be found in Switzerland, raclette is usually grilled over a fire and then served over boiled potatoes, onions, and pickles.

Don’t forget to pair all of these delicious dishes with the right wine.
