Chefs from the top 5-star hotels in Zurich prepared their dishes live in front of us each highlighting the food from one of the regions of Switzerland.

There was the Widder Hotel with specialities from Wallis, the Party Hyatt Zurich with ingredients sourced from Zurich, the Baur au Lac took its inspiration from Waadtland,  Storchen featured specialities from Ticino and The Dolder Grand concentrated on dishes from Graubunden.

There were so many wonderful dishes to try it was difficult to know where to start – it really was a gourmet adventure! And if you wanted a break to do something else, there was even a mini casino on site.

The dishes from the hotels were amazing! Other highlights included fabulous Indian and Asian specialities, delicious cheeses from Jelmoli’s Cheese Humidor, foie gras, wonderful Mövenpick wines (who are incidentally celebrating their 70 year anniversary) as well as a delicious coffee cocktail…. and then it was time to investigate the Dessert Room!

Everyone was enjoying themselves and the room was buzzing. Then at 9 o’clock Jelmoli’s 4th floor restaurant was turned into an exquisite Dessert Parlour where decadent desserts & cocktails were displayed in a fabulous setting.

There were cakes, tarts, ice cream, and so many delicious delicacies to choose from – if of course you still had room! We particularly liked the Ruby chocolate ice cream dessert (made with pink cocoa beans) and the cocktails were delicious and refreshing.
