Spinning a coin inside a bowl like roulette is more difficult than it looks
Former and current Minister of Tourism seemed bemused
Having a closer look
Notice how the coin is spinning sideways! Amazing!

The Swiss ambassador cracked a joke; "As the acclaimed Swiss philosopher/writer Gottfried Keller said, a speech should be short and the sausage should be long"!
Very true and precise.

THE FOOD AT L'HERITAGE;
Smoked foie gras in mango roll on raspberry and red wine jelly but looks like a bra cup---something Lady Gaga would wear
How about this---a pair of sexy bra cups! Disguised as food!
Carrot soup with butternut pumpkim and walnut foam in sour dough bread bowl---but the cop looks like a nipple!
See how the sour dough bowl covers look like the nipples of your wife? I borrowed my neighbour's sour dough cup which also has a nipple, complete with depressed little slit! Omigod, so sexy this food, no wonder the guys were eating these tits voraciously
Salmon escalope with Swiss marmalade and orange bearnaise---at last something with no sexual connotations!
Wagyu beef and poached chicken breast and veal tenderloin
Dark chocolate mousse with berries, mustard parfait and sweet roll basil pannacotta
