Fandango’s February Expressions #27

When in Rome, do as the Romans do

Spaghetti with Meatballs

Yes I was in Rome once for a few days. It was a summer holiday and the final destination was Sorrento for a week, but on the way we had a look at Rome. I was not really doing what the Romans do, but what the tourists did and I loved the town, despite all the old ruins that were in every corner.

I eventually discovered that a life in Switzerland was the next best thing. We had the Italian food to go with it. Perhaps my spaghetti with meat balls were not the original, but I don’t do a bad pizza.


I have now been living in Switzerland for more than fifty years and can only recommend to do as the natives do. Basically you have to. No-one in Switzerland makes steak and kidney pie or puts  vinegar on their chips/french fries as the Brits do.

  1. You’ve made me hungry. I’ll have to go find something. On another note, is the idea of “Swiss steak” an American misnomer? Or is there a traditional recipe for such a thing?
