With strong influences from Italian, French and German cuisine, Swiss cuisine is both varied and delicious. Traditional Swiss dishes rely heavily on simple ingredients, such as potatoes and cheese. Popular Swiss dishes include the Zürcher Geschnetzeltes, which is made of mushrooms sauteed with thin strips of veal and then served in a cream sauce with potato rösti. The most popular types of cheese dishes in Switzerland are raclette, which is melted and scraped over potatoes and served with pickles, and fondue, a hot melted blend of cheeses with wine and seasoning that you dip bread into. Typical Swiss beverages include Damassine, which is a liqueur distilled from Damassine prunes, Absinthe, which has been legal again since 2005, and Rivella, which is a carbonated beverage based on lactose and is one of the most popular drinks in the country. Ovaltine is also popular, and originated in Switzerland.
