As the temperature drops nothing beats a warming soup. And what could be better for keeping the chills away than a «Bündner Gerstensuppe». Food blogger and wonderful Ronster Mel B, (a spice girl?) came up with this great recipe which is easily made and soup-er yummy. The soup uses a speciality of the Graubunden region, the dried beef know as «Bundnerfleisch» but you can leave this out if you fancy a vegetarian soup.
Sauté the onions and garlic in a large saucepan with butter, add the barley and cook briefly. Then add the vegetables and the bay leaves and sauté. Deglaze the pad with the stock and cook on a medium heat for an hour, stirring regularly.
Add the cream and the Bündnerfleisch and cook briefly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

I am a volunteer at PAFI, a small foundation in Switzerland that supports 200 children from an underprivileged community in Brazil to go to school and eat a warm meal per day. Recently, we fulfilled the children's dream of a sports field. To complete the project, install plumbing and buy sport equipment we are looking for some additional funding. Because we don't have any administrative costs, every cent benefits the children directly. Here is the link to the project: https://www.crowdify.net/de/projekt/sport-pausenplatz
Does anyone know organisations and foundations in Switzerland that we could contact to supporting our project?
