Greetings from Food Fare...

Welcome to Food Fare and the sixth edition of our newsletter, Food Fare Notes.


Summer is finally winding down, which is none too soon for me. I'm looking forward to autumn and it's rich culinary offerings, including spicy harvest yields and the lure of Halloween.


In the meantime, thanks for stopping by Food Fare and enjoy the new recipes....

Swiss Food & Culture

SwitzerlandFood Fare's new "ethic" feature is about the food and culture of Switzerland. The article includes a brief history of the country, as well as tidbits about their culture and traditions, common Swiss dishes, wines, cheese, useful Swiss words and phrases and ten recipes:


Braunes Gefluegelragout (Roast Chicken Stew), Fondue Neuchateloise (Basic Fondue), Giabusada (Cabbage Stew), Kloesschensuppe (Little Dumpling Soup), Maluns (Long-Fried Potatoes), Papet Vaudois (Sausage & Leeks), Pizokels (Swiss Chard & Bacon), Rosti (Fried Potatoes & Bacon), Salm nach Basler Art (Salmon Basil-Style), Spatzli (Egg Noodles) and more.

For Diabetics

This new collection of recipes for diabetics was inspired by my former husband and dear friend Wilbert Alviso, who has Type II Diabetes. Keeping him healthy is quite a task because he loves breads and any dish containing chocolate. I'm hoping the influx of new recipes tailored just for diabetics will appeal to him as well.


Here's a sample:

Root Beer Float

1/3 cup scoop fat-free (no sugar) vanilla frozen yogurt

6 oz. sugar-free root beer

2 straws


Place yogurt in a tall glass. Pour in the diet root beer; stir lightly to mix. Add the straws and serve. Makes one serving.


Nutrition information per serving: 57 calories (0% calories from fat), 2 g protein, 0 total fat (0 saturated fat), 13 g carbohydrate, 0 dietary fiber, 0 cholesterol, 55 mg sodium. Diabetic Exchanges: 1 carbohydrate (1 bread/starch).

Diabetic recipes at Food Fare contain dietary exchange information.
