My best romantic dinner was French cuisine. It was our anniversary and we celebrated it at a French restaurant in a hotel. The setup was fantastic with fresh flowers, candlelight and French classic music. The food and the wine were unbelievable. It was our best dine out.

I don't think I have a best romantic dinner because I find it corny. No offense, it's just my own personal perspective. Anyway, I had one dinner with my boyfriend that I think was pretty much romantic. He took me to a $$-up Vietnamese restaurant by surprise because I forgot it was my birthday; therefore, I just thought we went to some cheap restaurant. Then he sang a happy-birthday-song to me while giving me the present. I think it might be nothing to others, but to me it was pretty romantic since it was cute to me. Well, it was also romantic because he didn't write me any damn poem or give me a bouquet. They're a waste of money to me.

Shokin,

How much are different between Swiss and Italian food? I’ve in Geneva for a day and had lunch at one of the restaurants near the lake. I remember that I had a sandwich and a escargots grilled dish. They were great. The escargots were delicious. Does Swiss people use a lot of tomato based sauce and olive oil in their cooking? I love Italian seafood pasta. It’s so delicious. Thanks.

Yes, I like grillet escargots ! but not all swiss do like it (it is an animal, on some people don't like the appearance, the look).

Yes, much tomatoes ! (in alu box even) and olive oil, I use it regularly en las pastas. [But for meat I prefer use tournesol or colza oil.] In Switzerland (and in many countries, I believe) many people like pastas ! we like this italian cooking (con bolognese salsa, carbonara, and others variants that you can create).

I like muy seafood ! especially en la paella from Spain (por ejemplo, paella valenciana)

In Switzerland we like much :

Pictures of röstis

I even found a website in english if you want to prepare it !

A raclette party !

On the next link, the fondue is at the bottom, under "Formaggi" on the left. [But I let you enjoy the very many others meals. :mrgreen: The title of this page means in italian : "Joys (pleasures) of the swiss table."

The fondue

You cute bred in squares and put it on a "special" (not so special) forket

How to cook swiss fondue

Some variants of the fondue :

you often add white wine in the fondue

you can add curry, pepper, persil, etc. according to your taste.

you can prepare a "fondue with tomatoes" : instead of cheese,

you put tomatoes (from tomatoes in box) and add what you want.

There are many others swiss meats.

If you want to know about italian food, I hope that Frengo will talk about.
