There was no option: While I was back home I had to bake bread in those century old wood ovens. Before flying to Switzerland, I asked my family to scan all the news around that topic to see if there was any baking going on while we were there and lucky us, the small village … Read more

On the long flight back to Hong Kong from my native Valais, my son Clement watched countless movies and cartoon on his screen. As I was seating next to him, I couldn’t help to notice that friendly big orange furry peanut on his screen… he was watching Dr. Seuss’s Lorax. In itself, it was 86 … Read more
