Martin Walker is a Zurich based author and publisher (if you're still looking for a gift for a German speaking friend, I recommend «Baden gehen in Zürich» or «Zürich by Food»). In his guest column, he shares seven Zurich specialities, he'll give away for Christmas.
Hip sausage creator Mike makes the famous Stadtjäger (the city's equivalent to the Landjäger) and he also has «Packenden Nacken» on offer. I love to cut off one or several slices of the pork collar with roasted black pepper and marinated with various herbs. Available at Chäslade, Nah und Fein, Bachsermärt, L’Ultimo Bacio
The syrups by Haltbarmacherei are no child's play. Ginger-lime or thyme-lemon taste very refreshing. When it's cold, I like to drink them with hot water. Available at Canto Verde, Bachsermärt, Berg und Tal, L’Ultimo Bacio
If you like it hot, you need herbs by Heuberger. For a rib eye steak try his version of «Beau Monde», a mixture of chilli, pepper and various herbs. Allegedly, even Hemingway flavoured his burgers with Beau Monde. Available at Beat Heuberger, Vom Fischer und syner Fru
Schümlipflümli (hot coffee with plump liquor and cream) only tastes great on the slope. During snow-free times the Pflümlistengeli (plump liquor chocolate sticks) by Schwerzmann are a good alternative. Just chocolate and spirit in elegant tubes. Available at Fabrikladen in Oberdorf, Globus, Jelmoli, Berg und Tal, Läderach, Schwarzenbach
Switzerland is full of surprises but if you have travelled to the Ticino by car the «perm-a-jam» at the Gotthard tunnel will not be one. Recently, in an attempt to avoid it i travelled along the Rhône valley which runs between

2. Lucky Dumpling: Authentic Chinese
6 years ago we welcomed 'Dini Mueter' to the Langstrasse. This summer, the bar and restaurant underwent a refurbishment and just reopened its doors with a new concept and a new name. Well, actually the new name is also the concept: Lucky

Hi, We are based in Oberhasli, Zurich, and are looking for somebody to sit a few hours with our cat. We are away between Thursday 14/04 and Monday 19/04, and don't want him to get lonely. If you would like to pay our cat company while reading a book, doing your home office, or would like to stay overnight, we and Ninja would be very happy. Price negotiable, email me [email protected], and help on only some days would be sufficient, since we will have somebody come and feed him daily anyways.
