Hey Men, Fathers, Sons - we're talking to you! We are hosting TEDxZurichWomen on December 6th and we invite everyone -- not just women -- to gather in celebration of women moving forward, boldly and brilliantly while sharing the work of shaping our future. 2019 is the year for women to be bold and brilliant — without apology.
TEDWomen 2019 is shining a spotlight on dazzling ideas from some of the world’s most extraordinary risk-takers and innovators. Celebrating pioneers making power moves, brilliant people who are just getting started, and those who tirelessly show up as allies and advocates. More info here:
Bagpipes and rock music make strange bed fellows but the self proclaimed «most famous bagpipe band on the planet,» manage to combine the two quite convincingly. This Sunday The Red Hot Chilli Pipers are going to be hitting the stage at the Volkshaus. Check out the video to find out what «Bag Rock,» is all about…
Sunday 7pm, Volkshaus, Stauffacherstrasse 60, 8004
I love a bit of cheese. Whether it’s Raclette, Fondue or just a piece of Cheddar with bread, a good culinary evening usually requires a visit to the cheese shop. But where to go? I tested out a few of the cheese shops in the city.
Chäs Chällerurbanfoodstore.chI can’t resist the two year old, extra ripened gruyere. And whilst your here, grab some of the old town fondue mixture. It’s made according to a secret recipe from the fifties. Chäs Chäller, Niederdorfstrasse 46
Chäs und Brotfacebook.comStanding in front of the counter is a pretty dizzying experience. The selection is just overwhelming and incredibly tasty. But a piece of the Testun al Barolo always finds its way home with me.Chäs und Brot, Mutschellenstrasse 197
Chum chum chauf Chäs

If I get up early enough on Fridays, i stop at the Rona stand in the Helvetziaplatz Market. She sells her own delicious goat cheese from Alp Peil and an excellent Tomm de Gourze from Lavaux. Oh, or the double-cream Geissenbrie. Oh, and everything else…

Warning: Cheeses may not look exactly like the above picture.After a philosophical and reflective walk through the woods of the Zurichberg i feel a reward for my sober and pragmatic way of life is called for. This reward comes in the shape of a large piece of cheese from the Gourmeggli. Round this off with a nice bottle of wine and some bread and the perfect meal is created.Ingrid’s Gourmeggli, Hegibachstrasse 102
(I can also highly recommend the yoghurt from Chäs Glauser and of course there is an excellent fondue mixture here too…)

Yes, Switzerland is famous for cheese and we have a lot of very good choices. It is painful to have to head over the English channel and resort to British alternatives. But there is nothing wrong with a good Stilton with a drop of sweet port. Ever.British Cheese Center, Limmatstrasse 231
Over the last 30 years, Tritt Käse has developed from an artisan alpine dairy into a market stall and then finally into a cheese shop. Their range features products exclusively that preserve century old traditions but are also somehow new and innovative.Tritt Käse im Viadukt, Limmatstrasse 231 und jeweils am Dienstag am Bürkliplatz Markt.

This small and friendly shop not only captures the charm of French speaking Switzerland but also the culinary delicacies from that part of the country. «La Religieuse», the in-house fondue mix, is definitely a hot contender for «Best Fondue in Town».Welschland, Zweierstrasse 56
Fans of the written word have a treat lined up for this Friday as literary heavy weight, Sir Salman Rushdie visits the Volkshaus. A controversial and colourful character, Sir Salman’s book “Satanic Verses,” caused diplomatic relations between Iran and the UK to be suspended and is still living under the fatwa, ordered by Iranian spiritual leader Ayatollah Khomeini. The fatwa clearly doesn’t bother him that much though as he is going to be doing an exclusive reading from his new book, “Quichotte.”
Friday 8pm, Volkshaus, Stauffacherstrasse 60, 8004
