What is Flammekueche?
by John Clarke
The first meeting of the German speaking group Kaffee und Kuchen will begin with a luncheon of Flammekueche (also known as Flammkuchen).
The word Flammekueche means a pie baked in the flames, but like a pizza, which it very much resembles, it is baked in an oven.
The Flammekueche originated in the Upper Rhine region of Germany. It seems to have been a tasty thermometer. While the wood-fired bread oven was heating, the baker would roll out very thinly some bread dough and top it with cream cheese, sliced onion and bacon. He would then place it in the oven, and if it cooked within two minutes, the oven was hot enough for the bread. (The main difference from a pizza is that the Flammekueche does not have a tomato base.) When Alsace was annexed by France, the Flammekueche entered French cuisine as tarte flambee.
The guest speaker at Kaffee und Kuchen will be Anna Fontaine. Anna grew up in Germany, and after arriving in Adelaide in 2016, opened her business Simply Flammekueche: A crispy taste of Europe. She will povide the Flammekueche for the luncheon. Flammekueche has come a long way from its origins with a variety of popular toppings now available.
The meeting will be held at the Langmeil Centre, 7 Maria Street, Tanunda, on Monday, 26 February with the luncheon beginning at 12 pm. Those wishing to attend the luncheon should contact Steffi Traeger on 0408 621 384. The charge of $25 per person includes coffee and cake.
