President Mobutu's Own Brandy

How I bought President Mobutu's very own brandy stash made with fruits growing on his Swiss estate.

Primeval Tyrolian Cheese

Graukäse is the closest offspring of the first cheese ever made. It is so strong you can actually raise the dead by placing piece under the deceased's nose. Follow me to Valle Aurina in Südtyrol to see how it's made at the farm. 

Swiss Steamer Dining

Dinner on a 100-year-old steamship on Lake Geneva by one of Switzerland's most famous chefs - complete with my behind-the-scenes visit of the kitchens.

Red-Hot Medieval Roots

I always wanted to cook root vegetables in hot embers but didn't have the required giant medieval hearth - until a month ago. See how we cooked turnips and beetroots from Hattonchâtel's moat garden in the castle's walk-in fireplace.

The Road to Hell Is Paved With Truffles

My Parmesan-White Truffle sauce's hit-me-back flavor turned me into a truffle-hunting pig worthy of a glutton in Hieronymus Bosch's Hell.

Swiss Knife Factory

My exclusive visit of Wenger, the cutler who manufactures well over 5000 knives a day in the Swiss Jura mountains.

The Four Hour Lunch

Lunch with my father at the best restaurant in Switzerland - and beyond. Don't miss the exclusive behind-the-scenes 360 panorama of the kitchens!

Saint Martin Fair

My visit to a 500-year-old country fair held once a year in Vevey, Switzerland.

A Visit of Château Pavie

Gerard Perse, one of the most important men in the Bordeaux wine industry, took me on a three-hour tour of Château Pavie in St Emilion. See for yourself how this man turned a failing château into one of the most prized wines in the region. Complete with many pictures and my 360° panorama of the huge limestone cellar and exclusive heart-to-heart interview with Perse.

Nishiki Ichiba Food Market in Kyoto, Japan

This 400-year-old covered food market in Kyoto is one of the best I've ever visited.

One for the road at The Last drop in Edinburgh

Drinking whisky in the pub where men condemned to death had their last meal made me think about life, death and gluttony.

Mangiamaccheroni - Neapolitan Macaroni Eaters

Mangiamaccheroni - Neapolitan macaroni-eating lads were once the symbol of Napoli's joie de vivre. Here are 20 examples of these icons from my personal collection.

Quicke's Slow Food Cheddar

My visit of Quicke's Dairy in Devonshire, the largest of the nine remaining producers of real farmhouse cheddar, or how to produce world class traditional cheddar on a large scale.

Dinner at Le Train Bleu

A memorable meal at one of the most spectacular restaurants in Paris, located in the Gare de Lyon train station.

A Day Out in the Swiss Alps

Last weekend my friend John invited me to spend the day at his chalet in the Swiss Alps. We sledged down the fearsome 5-miles-long run and finished with cheese fondue.
