Culinary creativity at the top of its game
This exclusive partnership was officially unveiled during a daylong event at César Ritz Colleges Switzerland. Stanislas Wawrinka, world number four tennis player and ambassador for Swiss Education Group, chose this occasion to reveal his favourite dish: “Rösti à la Stan”, an alternative healthy version of the famous Swiss dish. The Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland students reproduced the dish as part of a workshop-competition led by Anton Mosimann.
Passionate about cuisine, Stanislas Wawrinka shared, “I am truly honoured that such a personality in the culinary world has created my favourite dish, and I am extremely impressed by the magnificent way in which the recipe has been reinterpreted by the students at the Culinary Arts Academy Switzerland.”
