Transcript of Switerland
One of the best-known Swiss foods is fondue, a pot of melted cheese into which are dipped small pieces of bread. The fondue pot stands in the middle of the table over a flame that keeps it hot, those sitting around it are given small cubes of bread and a long fork, and everyone simply dips their pieces of bread into the hot cheese and eats one cheesy piece of bread after another. The secret of a traditional fondue is in the mix of cheeses that go into the pot. It is very easy to eat fondue until one suddenly feels ready to explode. But fondue does not have to be made of cheese; fondue Chinoise is a beef fondue, and for dessert there is chocolate fondue. swiss FOOD Swiss Specialities: Raclette

When the cheese was melting, they would scrape the soft cheese off and eat it with bread. These days raclette is usually made in a special raclette grill. Thick slices of cheese are placed in the grill and then eaten with potatoes, accompanied by gherkins and pickled onions.
