Completely unrelated, but...
Do you know if there are bagels in Zurich? I'm at the point that an hour train trip to Zurich sounds like a small price to pay. I tried the bagel-teig from Coop and it tastes like my grandma's yeast rolls. Not bad, just not what I'm looking for Thanks!

There is a bagels shop in Zurich, near the Enge Train Station. It's called: Books & Bagels.

Check the hours before you go! it is a Jewish-owned bookstore/coffee shop and they are closed for Sabbath and Jewish holidays.

The bagels are pretty good!

If you come, let me know. Perhaps I could meet you for a cuppa and a bagel?

That would be very nice. I enjoy reading your blog and it would be nice to meet you.
I contacted the American Bagel Company in Hamburg and they directed my to MyBagel.com there in Zurich. I have a message out to a fine-foods distributor to see if they resell American Bagel Companyto anyone in Basel. So far, no reply.
My experience with the bagel-teig from Coop has been laughable at best... tonight I used it as the top for a shepard's pie. The rest of the story is here: http://cararose1977.expat-blog.net
Ciao! Hope you get a little sleep tonight :-)
