Bären’s cuisine

The 14-GaultMillau-pointed restaurant serves many fine Swiss wild dishes. For example, the wild boar fillet, perfectly fried, on sweet potatoes and with a crunchy yellow beetroot. Or fresh ham on an exquisite autumn leaf salad with homemade wild terrine. Staying true to traditional Swiss cuisine, chef Bernhard Bühlmann serves his guests the finest local products. Evidence of this is the tender schnitzel from the Aargau Maibock, presented on long-boiled jus with spätzli, spring vegetables, and sour rhubarb.
