Swiss prove army food can be delicious

A three-course meal for 150 people has earned the Swiss Armed Forces Culinary Team a gold medal at the Culinary Olympics.

The team of 13 won over the jury and guests with a menu that included a salmon with saffron brioche appetiser, a main dish of chicken breast, olive tortilla and Mediterranean vegetables, and a macchiato dessert with coffee and sour cream.

The team worked in a Nato field kitchen in Germany and the cost was limited to €5 (SFr7.90) per person.

On Tuesday, the Swiss team will compete in the cold menu competition.

The Swiss Armed Forces Culinary Team was founded in 1999 and represents Switzerland at national and international competitions. It placed third at the last Culinary Olympics, run by the German Chefs' Association, in 2004.
