I usually don’t like TV cooking or food shows. They are usually boring, repetitive and annoying.
This summer however, the Swiss TV channel RTS produces a series of 8 shows centered around the food, traditions and people of a city in Switzerland. Chef Benjamin Luzuy and his journalist team take you through the different stages which are: Genève, Lausanne, Fribourg, Neuchâtel, Sion, Bâle, Zurich and Locarno.
That’s not a new concept, that’s for sure, but the way the people and their passions are presented is executed in such a young, fresh and sympathetic way, that it warms your heart!
The first episode Fribourg – La fondue au vacherin has been aired last Friday. You can rewatch it here
UPDATE: here’s the second episode, coming from Zurich
