You may think skiing is top of mind up here in the ‘Gods’, but actually it goes hand in hand with chocolate. Silky smooth chocolate is a global Swiss export, even if it only reached the country in 1819, they have refined the chocolate-making art to such a degree you could be forgiven for thinking they were the first to put it on the map.
I think it is particularly fitting that the promising young Swiss ski racer Hauser’s Schoggishop are sponsoring has the surname of Sette – that’s silk in Italian and perfectly depicts the delicious chocolates at Schoggishop. Twenty year old Daniele does a great job promoting the delicious chocolate shop which is the online extension of the Hauser Confectionery. So what Hauser’s Chef Piero produces is now available worldwide – here he is making some of his truly magical chocs….note that bottle in his hand…..
Little wonder then that the Swiss eat on average 21 pounds of chocolate per person, per year – once you have tasted it you can see why – nice to know when I travel I can still get my fix sent directly to me!
