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 :

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.
