Already as a student, I founded the club of cheese-loving students at the University of Zurich. A club where new members were tested for their cheese skills. Later, I cooked my friends and family with cheese dishes from Switzerland, especially with Raclette, Cheese Fondue and Cheese Rösti. I am now an expert in this area, and over the years I have been able to refine the quality and exclusivity of the ingredients, the preparation and the taste of the dishes. In my main job I am economist in development cooperation.

Well first off, it was only me who showed up, and normally I would think, travel bookings would always have minimum number of guests to entertain, kudos to Airbnb and Patrick, for having me as the lonesome (yet I think very awesome guest). On that note, it was very interactive, at least for me, which I personally would like my travel booking experiences. Patrick was very accommodating, and very informative not limited to just the actual Raclette experience, but altogether explained things about the Swiss culture . I had a really great time, being a cheese lover that I am, good quality cheese and also wine. Even the night cap of tea and schnapps with Patrick’s choice of chocolates, was awesome. Highly recommended!

From the moment I booked this experience until I left Patrick’s home, I felt welcomed. His interest in all things cheese is contagious and before you realise it you are participating in preparing a fabulous meal. Patrick guides you through the preparation of Cheese Raclette, explaining the types of ingredients and history. I highly recommend this experience, I am looking into purchasing my own Raclette once I’m home!
