Swiss Spätzli Discover more delicious Swiss dishes on my small group food & wine tour of Switzerland! I love eating spätzli in Switzerland where they’re also known as chnöpfli (or knoepfle). While the Germans and Austrians make spaetzli too, they serve them simply boiled – the butter-loving Swiss go a step further. Once boiled Swiss […]

Tarte Flambee Forestiere

Tarte Flambée Forestière Like this recipe? You’ll love my online French cooking class inspired by Damien Pignolet!

Tarte Flambée (Flammekueche)

My Alsatian friend Isabelle, who serves it whenever friends gather at her house for drinks, doesn’t use a written recipe – but this one was inspired by watching her make it.
