This is Schellenursli, he lives now in South Eastern Queensland!
Schellenursli is a fantastic childrensbook. Most children in Switzerland are familiar with this story. The famous author and illustrator are Selina Choene and Alois Carigiet.

This book was published the first time in 1945.
Schellenursli has not reached the same fame in the world like "Heidi". It still belongs to the best childrensbooks with its fantastic illustrations.
This book is also available in English.

Recipe for "Engadiner Hochzeitssuppe"

It is a festive soup and is served for special occasions like a wedding.

Ingredients for 4 persons

50g bacon

1 tbspoon butter

50g carrots cut in julienne strips

50g leeks sliced

50 g sellerie sliced

600 ml Stock (chicken, beef or vegetable)

150 ml pure cream

1 egg yolk

salt and pepper

Cut small cubes of bacon, add to melted butter and let it sizzle for a few minutes add the vegetables and cook on low heat for 5 minutes. Add the stock and cook slowly until the vegetables are soft. Add cream and whisk in egg yolk. Don't boil the soup now or the egg yolk will curdle. Just reheat gently if necessary.

Bien appetit! (In the Engadin, St.Moritz, the language is Romanisch, an old etruscan language.)
