Osteria Candosin – For the foodie bookworms

There are few things in life that I enjoy more than reading and eating. The quality of the material is tantamount in both cases. What Osteria Candosin delivers without fault every time is flavour and occasionally also the opportunity to recreate it yourself via one of the cookbooks for sale.

The food is in line with the Italian atmosphere of the place – but not at all in the pasta & pizza overload sense – no, here you get the refined version of Italian cuisine. It’s no surprise really, the walls are plastered with cooking books and only those that have won prestigious awards, so with that sort of inspiration inundating the place there’s absolutely no way the chef could go astray.

Impressed with the food? The owner provides some of his secrets in his own cook book, hooray! My friends and I now take it in turns to cook each other our favourite recipes from the book but when we’re in the need of an injection of atmosphere and inspiration, we’ll head to the temple itself.

They used to focus on regional Italian food on the whole, but they recently changed their format a bit –  they still do Italian, but a 4 course veggie menu for 70 CHFs. It really is worth every penny!
