Nišoise salad

Sometimes referred to as Salade Nišoise or insalata nizzarda, is a mixed salad consisting of various vegetables topped with tuna and anchovy. It is a specialty of the C˘te d'Azur and named for the city of Nice.

The salad or "salade" is displayed on a flat plate or platter and arranged on a bed of lettuce. Ripe tomato wedges, halved boiled new potatoes, steamed green beans, wedges of hard-boiled eggs, are topped with canned tuna (tinned in oil), and Nišoise Cailletier olives. Finally the salad is garnished with tinned anchovies. The salad is served with vinaigrette.

The original version of the salad always included raw red peppers, shallots, and artichoke hearts, never potatoes. The French, especially in the Nice area, will clearly state no cooked vegetables are to be used.

Toblerone

A chocolate bar made by Kraft Foods, who acquired former owner Jacobs Suchard in 1990. It is well-known for its distinctive packaging, its prism shape (triangular prism or pentahedron) and its ubiquity in duty-free shops.

The triangular shape of the Matterhorn in the Swiss Alps is commonly believed to have given Theodor Tobler his inspiration for the shape of Toblerone. However, according to Theodor's sons, the triangular shape originates from a pyramid shape that dancers at the Folies BergŔres created as the finale of a show that Theodor saw.

Toblerone was created by Theodor Tobler and Emil Baumann in Bern, Switzerland in 1908. They developed a unique milk chocolate including nougat, almonds and honey with a distinctive triangular shape. The product's name is a portmanteau combining Tobler's name with the Italian word torrone (a type of nougat). The image of a bear is hidden in the Matterhorn mountain symbolizing the town of its origin.
