Sara and Andreas shut me out of the kitchen this week while they cooked an all-Swiss birthday dinner surprise. They picked Capuns--a Graubünden specialty that they guessed I'd never had before, served with salad, Graubünden wine, and Meringue dessert. We sat around for an hour, chatting half in English, half in Swiss German, and I learned a lot of new vocabulary...though it happens that it's mostly words I should be careful to not say, or not say in particular contexts. :)
I love having roommates who can cook, who explain potentially embarrassing vocabulary to me, and who are kind!
