“Maccarón de ris” is a traditional potato, rice and cheese dish from from Calanca. It is taken from “I mazzafam, fine original recipes from the valleys of southern Graubünden” by Gianni Bertossa, Desertina publishers. If you have a recipe with Swiss origins you’d like to share. Please add it as a comment to this post, or as a separate post!
