Salt & pepper, gin & tonic, peanut butter & jelly and…er…beans on toast. The best foods always have a side kick and what combination could be better that the classic, «Moules et Frites.» It is said that you should only eat mussels in months with an ‘R’ and, after checking the spellings, it means we are good to go. Here comes my ultimate, legendary and spectacular moules et frites guide for autumn!
Seebad Enge: The Best ViewSummer is over - at least that's what everyone says - and the «Badi» completes it’s metamorphosis into a bistro. Until the 28th of October, Seebad Enge will be serving fresh moules à l'italienne or à la crème with the classic frites. And if you want to make it a three-course meal, you can order a chèvre chaud for starters and a cheese plate for dessert. Be sure to book, because the seats sell out quickly!
22nd September until 28th October.
Tues - Fri from 6pm Sat & Sun 12pm - 2pm and from 6pm Portions from CHF 29.50. With Frites CHF 8.50
Dani H.: Use Your DiscretionIt never ceases to amaze me what Daniel H. conjures up. Wonderful mussels, crispy frites and dry white wine, for example. What more could you want except more of the same! No problem at Dani H., because you can just keep ordering more. Space is limited, so be sure to reserve. (at the restaurant and in your stomach.)
Every Tuesday from 7pm until 13th Dec. CHF 45 per Person à discretion
Milieu: Moules et Frites With A TwistIn Milieu, the traditional French, (or is it Belgian?) dish is a served with a twist. Here, the moules are also served with a green curry or a tomato sauce.

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?
I'm looking for people who have experienced living and working in the USA because I'm planning to live and work over there. Well, as it takes a lot of time I'd appreciate if you could give me some advice and thoughts.
It’s the combination of features that makes them unique.
No more spilling, the Golyo ICE tray can be easily filled through the filling opening and is absolutely leak-proof afterwards. This means it can be placed in the freezer in any position, even upright next to the pizza!
Since silicone is inherently flexible, the single ice globes can be easily removed from the ice tray.
Just pull off the lid, apply a little pressure from the back and the ice globe will almost jump out in your direction.
Large ice globes
A globe is the geometric shape that has the smallest surface area in relation to its volume. Therefore, this shape is ideal for "ice cubes".
Because of the small surface, an ice globe melts more slowly, so the drink is cooled longer and less watered down. The Golyo ICE globes have a diameter of 4.5cm. For the vast majority of drinks, one piece is quite enough. When I make my beloved iced coffee, one globe is enough to keep the drink cool, and by the time I've finished it, it's not even fully melted
Silicone is based on silicon, i.e. quartz sand, and not on petroleum like "normal" plastics. It is inherently flexible, so no plasticisers are needed.
Silicone is considered to be absolutely harmless; it is not for nothing that it is often used in medicine, e.g. for heart valves.
Moreover, silicone does not decompose into microplastics should it get into the environment.
It is my concern that this will not be another China import product. Unfortunately, I was not able to find a manufacturer in Switzerland who had the right infrastructure and was willing to produce it. That's why I chose a company just around the corner in Germany.
