Past Event: May 29, 6 pm

Please join Slow Food Corvallis in collaboration with JC Mersmann to celebrate the terroir and cuisine of Switzerland. Agriculture and food culture reflect both history and geography; the cuisine of Switzerland is no exception.The steep slopes and deep valleys of this mountainside garden have shaped its products and traditions. Swiss food products and culinary traditions have developed to transform its “constraints” into “resources”, offering unique and characteristic foods beloved by both local and international consumers, with strong ties to the land. Learn about these connections and enjoy a taste of Swiss terroir guided by chef JC Mersmann and visiting scholar Dr. Patrick Mundler at a dinner at the Dizzy Hen Restaurant in downtown Philomath. The dinner will feature an illustrated discussion of the land and cuisine of Switzerland by Dr. Mundler and a four course menu of Swiss specialties accompanied by two glasses of wine.
