The sun is out and the whish for summer ripens in my heart. In my mind, summer is frequently linked to Italy, so when I came across Genovas at Bertastrasse (IdapIatz) it felt like holiday. The shop, run by an Italian family, is filled with delicacies from Molise in Southern Italy: from hand-made pasta and sauces to antipasti (several varieties with truffle) and from wine to oil. All products are produced by small manufacturers and cooperatives. The prices are very reasonable (most expensive red wine costs 23 francs) and everything is designed with style. Great for a dinner full of summer sun or as a gift to bring along. Genovas, Bertastrasse 26, 8003. Opening hours: Monday to Friday 4 to 8 pm, Saturday 10 am to 8 pm

The mountains aren’t just for winter and, as the snow melts, a whole new world of opportunities for hiking, cycling and climbing opens up. If this appeals to you but the budget doesn’t stretch to a new rucksack then head down to Dynamo this evening for their Alpin Flohmi which is in collaboration with Mountain Wilderness Schweiz and Public Eye . They’ve got all sorts of mountain sports equipment to buy or sell and, as we all know, re-using is good for the environment.
I've just been refused entry to a cafe in Zurich because their Vaccine app doesn't recognise my UK vaccination certificate.
The owners of the app tell me there are no plans to fix this.

Does anyone have any suggestions?
