Zurich, without attracting attention from a gastronomic point of view, will give odds to many European cities. The main message that is broadcast by restaurateurs and chefs is the use of local products. Not a myth! Potato blue-eye purple and carrot curve shape – this is not a flaw, and bioproducts, which are proud of European farmers and restaurateurs.
