A guide to making great food choices

What we eat is the single biggest determinant of our health – short term and long term. It is also deeply personal, connected with culture, emotions and preferences. We all yearn after family favourites, treats from our childhood or national favourites such as fish and chips or mac and cheese.  Often, what we like to eat or are used to eating, is not always what is best for our health. Are you like many people, confused by the enormous amount of information about different diets that are often contradictory.  All the more reason to ignore the so-called experts and eat what you want, right? Life is short after all and food is a pleasure in life!

A tour of Basel’s best microbreweries and beer halls

Take my tour of Basel’s microbreweries and beer halls, doable in one day or over time. There’s a vibrant microbrewery scene in Basel and many a wonderful beer hall to drink a beer in the bar, on the terrace or to take away. Cheers and enjoy!!

Enjoy a curious coffee at Basel’s old mortuary

When I entered the Zum Kuss, Cafe Kultur Bar, I was taken a back about how quirky, small and inviting the space was. There were wooden, old style, Parisian seating, a large table with candelabra on it and the most intriguing wall of spirits behind the bar, it was a bit like walking into the bar version of Diagon Alley’s wand shop.
