Cuisine of Davos for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

Davos Platz Today the Davos cuisine consists of hundreds of dishes, originating from the French, Italian and German culinary traditions. There are also dishes that came from England, the United States and Denmark, but their number is much smaller. However, today we can safely say that modern Swiss chefs have long considered their pride dishes borrowed from neighbors centuries ago. And there is every reason for this. Traditionally, local dishes are quite simple and very hearty. The most common products are cheese, butter, milk, eggs, vegetables, and meat.

Davos breakfast is quite light. Traditionally, the locals eat one or two sandwiches of bread and cheese and drink coffee with milk in the morning. Dinner is usually also quite modest. Dinner is boldly considered the main meal. Be sure to order fondue at local restaurants. Frankly, it's not really a dish, but a way of serving or a way of mixing ingredients. Fondue consists of a special dish in which melted cheese, wine, spices are mixed. Often potato flour is added to this mixture. A tray with pieces of meat, bread, potatoes or other vegetables, which are dipped into the mixture with a special long fork, is also served.
Often fondue involves dipping a piece not only in cheese but also in white wine or strong Kirsch. Fondue is usually ordered for everyone sitting at the table. So the portion will be rather big. However, if you see a dish containing the word “fondue” in the name – do not rush to order it. It will be better if you clarify its composition with the waiter. The fact is that dishes made with a completely different technology are often called fondue in local restaurants. However, the only thing that connects them with the classic dish is the addition of cheese, which is also not always present in the dish. For example, "chicken fondue" is an ordinary chicken in a creamy sauce, and fondue rustic – fried meat with potatoes under melted cheese with spices. Copyright

There is also a dessert fondue option. Everything is almost traditional in that case, but you get hot chocolate instead of cheese. It can be mixed with puree, fruit and ice cream. Waffles, cookies or plain bread are usually dipped in it. This fondue often contains whole or crushed nuts. Another dish that is definitely worth tasting while on holiday in Davos is called raclette. The composition is quite simple – it is a melted cheese of the same name used for filling potatoes cooked in the peel. Raclette is served with pickles, onions, vegetables, spices, and herbs.
There is a special cheese soup in town that is always served with cubes of fried bread and a few dozen kinds of cheese salads. Very tasty fried meat is served with soup, which is also abundantly sprinkled with cheese. Julienne is quite a popular dish among the locals. You can taste even such a seemingly banal dish like scrambled eggs in Davos. The locals cook it with cheese, and not in a frying pan, but in a water bath.

The fried potato tortilla roesti is popular as a quick snack. It is cooked with much oil and sprinkled with cheese. It is eaten as an independent dish or together with sausages as a snack, or as a side dish to meat or less often - to fish. Soup based on cottage cheese, sour cream or cream can be an unexpected item on the menu. And it is not necessarily sweet. Meat and vegetables can be added to this soup. Local meat schnitzels and sausages are worth a taste. Pork legs and sausage salad with cheese and vegetables will also be of interest to you.
Davos Platz Kräpfli can be used for a snack. These are puff pies with various fillings, most often with vegetables or meat. Leaver is also popular in local cuisine. Fried bread, potatoes, pasta, beans, and cabbage can be ordered as a side dish. There are few sea fish and seafood dishes in mountain Davos. Such a type of river fish as trout is very popular among local cooks. Chocolate deserves special attention as a dessert. It can be both a chocolate bar and candies with different fillings. Honey cakes, puff cakes, cookies with almonds and chocolate, rolls, muffins, and biscuits - all this is very tasty Swiss sweets. Very tasty cakes, both biscuit, and custard are cooked in Davos.
