One of the favorite Swiss national dishes is a special creamy cheese that is melted under a red hot heater
(or in front of a wood fire) and grated on top of boiled small potatoes. Add a few pickled cucumbers (gerkins) and pickled onions and a generous amount of
white wine (usually Fendant from Valais/Wallis) and you have a wonderful evening with friends! This shot was taken in Southern California actually,
at the Swiss Park in Whittier on the occasion of the August 1st National Day for Switzerland.
