“Discovering” is my favorite part of running this blog – getting to explore a new location, staying at a unique hotel, trying a regional dish, learning the history of a Swiss brand. For those who grow up in Switzerland, local products and experiences are the norm, but for expats, knowing, doing, and shopping local is an insight and a small badge of integration achievement. Today I want to tell you about ananné, a premium natural skincare brand produced entirely in Switzerland, that I had the chance to discover at their recent re-launch event, and that I’m proud to work with this year.*
There are many great restaurants in Zurich, but Kronenhalle is one of a kind. Located in the heart of the city – at Bellevue – from its windows, you can see the busy streets of today’s Zurich, but inside is a world that has been preserved since 1924. Its legendary and historic status as a local institution is largely due to the fact that its owners loved food as much as they loved art.
