We all know that I am no Julia Child in the kitchen. When we moved to Geneva, I saw the name Betty Bossi everywhere. I saw recipes, often heard the name and saw prepackaged Betty Bossi items for sale in the grocery store. I began to wonder who is Betty Bossi? I thought she was probably a Swiss celebrity chef, like the Swiss Emeril Lagasse, Gordon Ramsey or Jamie Oliver.
Guess what? The joke’s on me. She’s not a real person, more of a marketing concept, kind of like a Swiss Betty Crocker. Since my unfortunate kitchen accident, I’ve sworn off kitchen appliances (especially immersion blenders). As a result, I won’t be making any of her uber-Swiss recipes that are available on myswitzerland.com. May you have better luck in the kitchen than I do.
