A Swiss ultimate institution, Cenovis® comes in the form of a brown spread. Mainly elaborated from yeast and vegetable extracts, this vegetable paste is mostly consumed in Switzerland on buttered bread for breakfast.
Although this custom may seem a bit barbaric and do not convince outside the borders, its use in the meat (or fish) cooking and sauces preparing is unanimous: to taste it is to adopt it. The only concern, the Cenovis® is only to find in Switzerland and can not be bought even on the Internet. If needed, the Marmite® can replace it quite faithfully.
