Zurich – Can it get any cheesier??? We try and do our utmost for our students here at LSI Zurich, even if this means going out for traditional Swiss Cheese Fondue in summer – temperatures reaching between 32°C and 36°C. Japanese lawyer Akiko Isoda from Osaka initiated this ‘cheesy’ experience: “I know this is totally off-season, but this is my first chance to taste real Swiss food and real Fondue not coming from a package!”. Even LSI Zurich teachers were happy about the experience: “Eat a lot of cumin with the fondue and even your stomach finds Cheese Fondue enjoyable in summer.”
