Just arrived back from a five star luxury trip to Southern Switzerland for Food and Travel magazine. A big thank you to the Eden Roc Hotel for their kind hospitality!
The beautiful twin lakeside towns of Ascona and Locarno, situated on the shores of Lake Maggiore are so far south that they are almost in Italy. The language, architecture and food have all have a very Northern Italian influence!
Its chestnut season down there and the humble Chestnut, once the staple food for the Ticinese people of the remote alpine valleys is still made into a vast range of products from honey, jams, sweets and of course alcohol.
The article for Food and Travel magazine is scheduled for release later next year and I will be posting the stunning photos shortly after that.
In the meantime you can't beat a Fart Joke - Oh Err Missis:
|A rather unfortunate name for the public transport system in Locarno, Switzerland - affectionately called 'The Fart Bus' by the local ex pats.|
