Vevey is about 20 minutes drive from where we live, and like Lausanne, also located on the bank of Lake Geneva.  It has a food museum, known as the Alimentarium.  I believe it is sponsored by Nestle, the world’s largest food manufacturer, the headquarters of which is located there.  The museum offers a set lunch which showcases Swiss ingredients and techniques, and each course is explained by the chef who assembles the dish in front of you.  The restaurant, La Verrière, is of cafeteria style – so after each dish we return to the chef to pick up the next course.   The dishes were special and beautifully presented, the flavors delicate, the explanations interesting, and it was inexpensive.


If and when I find the 1-page menu, I will update the post with the names of the dishes.  The last two pies are not part of the set lunch but they were on display in the cafe.

It has been a while since I posted food porn – well, here are some links to my earlier food porn posts: our first food porn entry, Telepan in NYC, and DBGB.  Have a second helping.
