If you’re planning a trip to Switzerland, time it around the much-loved Food Zurich festival, which returns to the banks of the Limmat River and runs around Zurich from May 24 to June 3.



The 11-day event will celebrate culinary culture in all its facets – from street food and slow food to haute cuisine – as experimental Swiss dishes meet traditional recipes and international trends while seasoned restaurants serve it up at surprising new venues. 

This year’s programme will be conducted by more than 200 producers, up-and-coming chefs, restaurateurs and retailers offering guests hands-on experiences, new tastes and discussion on the latest scientific innovations.
