Burt takes viewers on a gastronomic tour of Western Switzerland. The most mountainous region in Switzerland is called the Valais and it is the home of Switzerland's most famous mountain ---the Matterhorn and that is where our gastronomic tour begins. We'll learn about a chocolate bar shaped like the Matterhorn. Why this is one of the great cheese producing regions of Switzerland and why raclette is the ultimate melted cheese dish. The Valais is also the largest wine producing area in Switzerland. Viewers also discover Charlie Chaplin's contribution to chocolate, the gastronomic specialties of the Lake Geneva Region and why Geneva has some of the best restaurants in Europe.
