    Zwiebelkuchen (German Onion Pie)

    Zwiebelkuchen made my taste buds explode when I first tried this dish. Making it is extraordinarily easy. Tasting it will make you want only more. If there’s anything you can do to add something wonderfully delicious to your meal zwiebelkuchen is it. I know you will agree with me if you haven’t had yet. And if you have, then I’m sure you agree with me! At first glance, you’ll probably have the same reaction I had… “Wait, is zwiebelkuchen a quiche?” You know what you’re probably right.I do think that zwiebelkuchen the essentially German quiche. While translates to an onion pie, to…

    Welcome to the first ever Germany Food Month (#MarchGermany on Facebook/Instagram)! Don’t take this the wrong way, but when I think German food I think of this scene from Hogan’s Heroes. (I’m referring to the first nine seconds, or so, of this clip. But I highly recommend the show if you’d like a few laughs!)      I love that show! (If you can’t see the clip let me know and I’ll try to find it again on YouTube!) Hahaha, call me an old-timer, but I love that show. So many good laughs. Anyway, as you might have gathered from watching…

  • A Slice of Flammekueche

    Traditional Flammekueche (Tarte Flambée)

    Tuesday, 27th February 2018Tyler

    Flammekueche (in Alsatian, tarte flambée in French, and flammkuchen in German) literally translates to “flame cake.” Flammekueche is probably one of the most bizarre pizza-esk dish you’ll ever come across. I mean, just look at the wide variety of names! But, “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” (William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet). How the name came about is beyond me. I Googled around and couldn’t find anything definitive. But, if you know its history please let me know! I’d really like to find out! What I can tell you about the history of flammekueche has been pieced together from tons of web…

  • A French Salade Landaise Recipe

    Salade Landaise

    Thursday, 22nd February 2018Tyler

    Quick shameless plug, I made salade landaise as a second course after eating poulet vallée d’Auge (French Chicken with Apples) and it went together beautifully 🙂 Honest to goodness, this is the best salad I’ve had all year. I know it is still February, but this was definitely better than any salad I had last year. That is how good salade landaise really is, and you’ll love it too after the first bite! This incredible gourmet salad is known for duck and being from the Landes region. (You could have guessed that last one by the name, no?) If you Google Landes cuisine, food, history then you…

  • Carbonara - Step 4 - Final Product 2

    Classic Carbonara

    Saturday, 30th December 2017Tyler

    I woke up this morning feeling like bacon. Suffice it to say I was extremely disappointed when I opened my fridge. So, I came up with another plan. This afternoon I ran to the store and bought some. I came back and in minutes whipped together this delicious carbonara. I’ve always considered the carbonara to be a strange dish, wonderfully creamy and bacony but strange. I mean, the dish is practically pasta, cream, eggs, and bacon. There’s not much to it other than that. I don’t even know how it came about. Honestly, I can hardly imagine the original creation. It…
