In this month, three Swiss chefs arrive in São Paulo directly to the hotel Tivoli Mofarrej to show people from São Paulo some of the most outstanding flavors of the European country.
Between the 11th and 13th, the Must Bar, which overlooks the hotel’s pool, serves a special menu that brings traditional recipes from Switzerland as Swiss cheese fondue it’s the raclette with Canadian-style loin.
The chefs come from titlis a region of German Switzerland known for Mount Titlis at an altitude of 3,238 meters, which is relatively close to the city of Lucerne.
The team is led by Rene Fallet who works in the kitchen of the famous Grand Hotel National Luzern and is responsible for several gastronomic promotion missions in Swiss embassies around the world.
The Tívoli hotel, in Alameda Santos, a few steps from Avenida Paulista, still welcomes the chef Urs Portmann who led the cuisine of the Bergbahnen restaurants and hotels and also the gastronomy of some local cruise lines.
The preparation of desserts is the responsibility of the pastry chef. Martin Pfiffner graduated from the Confiseur Konditorei Schneider school in Davos.
The action is part of the event Taste of Switzerland organized by the Consulate General and the Swiss Tourist Board.
“Swiss gastronomy is full of good surprises and we will be able to show a little bit of the flavor that Brazilians will find on a trip to Switzerland”, says Fabien Clerc, director of Swiss tourism in Brazil.
During the period, country delicacies will be available at the lunch buffet and à la carte at dinner. The fondue costs R$240 for two people and comes with a selection of breads.
