Our 2020 chef: Norbert Schwery from "Gaumenzauber"

Let Norbert Schwery, a former member of the Swiss National Cookery Team, cook specially for you this year.

Born into an innkeeper's family, it was clear from an early age that Norbert would one day become a chef.  Before starting his apprenticeship, he trained as a confectioner in Bern at the Beck Glatz Confiserie. After completing an additional apprenticeship as a chef, he travelled around briefly at home and abroad before he and Irène, his wife, started a family.

As a member of the Swiss National Cookery Team, Norbert Schwery celebrated many successes. Together with the Rhone-Chefs, he won a silver medal at the 2004 Culinary Olympics in Erfurt and gold medals at the Igeho 2007 and Zagg 2006.

After successful years as landlord of the Schlosskeller Restaurant in Brig, Norbert Schwery and his wife founded the catering and party service "Gaumenzauber" (palate magic)  in 2007 and he now cooks his way through the whole of Oberwallis.

He has even cooked for Federal Councillors: the festive banquet in the Simplon Hall  in Brig, which was part of the Federal Council reception for Viola Amherd, was orchestrated by Norbert Schwery. In his own TV programme on TV Oberwallis, Norbert Schwery whisked viewers away to a world of culinary magic.  With recipes for ‘Valaisan Choscht’ – local and seasonal dishes –  fine festive menus and many other culinary highlights, he always offers plenty of tips and tricks that viewers can easily replicate and cook at home.

So get into the panorama coach - take a seat - and let your palate be enchanted by Norbert Schwery’s magical culinary skills...
