FOOD Zurich – Kick Off Party

posted on | updated on | by Zuri Girl

FOOD Zurich has officially begun! Last night the party rocked at Jelmoli Food Market as 5-star hotel chefs kicked-off the 11-day festival.

Fine dining at it’s finest with wines from Staatskellerei Zurich served by General Managers themselves, guests discovered diverse dishes from Baur au Lac, Widder Hotel, Park Hyatt Zurich, Storchen Zurich and the Dolder Grand. 

The Widder Hotel created a truffled veal while The Dolder Grand presented a food art combination of typical swiss meats with modern flair. 

We loved the fun activity by Bad Hunter…linking a bicycle to the smoothie jar so that you have to pedal the bike in order to mix your own smoothie!  How about adding that to your morning routine ladies??!!

Zurich DJ Sko’s music brought up the vibe and at 10pm our sweet tooth fell whole-heartedly into the chocolate & fruit temptations.

Despite Swiss Casino’s generous offer for an after party, this Zuri Girl’s food coma had taken over and we headed to bed…after all there’s many more FOOD Zurich events this weekend to prepare for! 

With over 111 events during the next 11 days, grab the gals and get to FOOD Zurich!
