In the cultural melting pot of Beijing, Peter Troesch, general manager of the restaurant “Swiss Taste”, is eager to deliver something he's found lacking in the Chinese capital: an authentic taste of Switzerland.
“We offer cooking classes to tell people about Swiss food, to let them experience how to make the food and eat it… I think through food you can promote the country very well,” he said.
But the relationship between China and Switzerland extends far beyond the taste buds.
Switzerland might be a small, landlocked nation of just 7 million people, but its relations with China have been flourishing, especially since the two signed a Free Trade Agreement that came into force in 2014. It was the first such deal inked between China and a country in Europe.
