Alsatian Flammekueche
4
1 Review.
This is a traditional recipe of the famous Alsatian flammekueche also known as tarte flambée that my grand-parents used to do every Sunday. They are traditionally baked in a wood-fire oven which makes a crispy bottom with slightly burned edges with a creamy topping. But don´t worry with modern ovens they are also easy and tasty to prepare. Using a wood-fire oven was part of the Sunday evening entertainment at my grand-parents.
