It’s with great sadness that we announce the retirement of The Swiss Club Restaurant’s operator for 22 years, Roger Moullet.
Roger has not only breathed heart and soul into the Swiss Club of Victoria for over two decades, he has attributed to its success with his assiduous level of cooking and hospitality.
When you think of the Swiss Club, you think of Roger.
We also want to thank all staff, past and recent, who have added to this amazing legacy.
At his beginnings in Switzerland, Roger was introduced to a kitchen at the age of 15. He was employed as a kitchen hand in Neuenburg, and took an apprenticeship in Davos where he became a qualified chef. He moved to Melbourne Australia in 1970 and has worked with many great chefs including Hermann Schneider. His first restaurant was “Basilea” in Bourke Rd, Camberwell for 9 years, then “Schouflörs” in Canterbury Road, Blackburn for another 9 years, before moving to Flinders Lane to start the Swiss Rösti Bar (ground Floor).
We will miss his perfected Rösti, his Spätzli, his fresh delicious Wiener Schnitzels, rich beef goulash and creamy Cheese Fondue and who will forget the token hand shake as he came out of the kitchen to greet all his guests.
This, no doubt will leave a large hole in Flinders lane, but his legacy will go on for a lifetime.
Thank you Roger, for giving us a lifetime of memories. Of birthdays, spontaneous parties, delicious dinners, boozy nights, laughs and tears. What a ride. Best wishes from all of us for a well deserved retirement and great times ahead with your many grand children.
