    Muesli was invented by a Swiss physician for patients in the hospital. It is also a popular Swiss-German breakfast food. icon_biggrin.gif Becky

    Here is some info taken from Wikipedia:

    Switzerland is in the unusual situation of being the home of three of Europe's major languages. Swiss culture is characterised by diversity, which is reflected in a wide range of traditional customs. A region may be in some ways strongly culturally connected to the neighbouring country that shares its language, the country itself being rooted in western European culture.

    BTW, Germany is one of the neighboring countries to Switzerland, and the Swiss population is about 70% German.

    So, to answer the original question, YES, muesli can be considered BOTH Swiss and German!

    So just to help me clarify a point for ZWT - would Swiss and Austrian cuisine fall in this forum or another (they do not appear to have one of their own)?

    I have a question raised by a player browsing their recipes to prepare their cookbooks for the tour....

    This is not a very busy forum because the cookery is not as popular as per example Greek or Italian cooking (Germany gets most of the attention) that's why the countries above are already grouped together. People can always post questions here about Swiss and Austrian cuisine and there will be a good chance they might get answers since there are similarities in the cooking backgrounds of these European countries. I am Dutch and can sometimes help out with questions about German and Belgium cooking...and its also the other way around.
