Today is Fête Nationale Suisse – Swiss National Day! I lived in and around Geneva from the mid-80’s until 2000 so Switzerland will always be my second home. If you’ve ever wondered, to quote the infamous words of Clara Peller, “Where’s the beef?” I can confirm – look no further than en Suisse! Julie Andrews may dance and sing on Austrian mountaintops but the Swiss hills are alive with the mooing and bells of big brown cows.
So how much is a lot of beef? Well, in Switzerland there is about one cow for every ten people. There are just as many, even a few more, bulls. That’s one bovine for every five people.
Are you thinking of celebrating Swiss National Day but don’t know where to start?
