Tarte flambee

tarte flambee

Wednesday night I was invited to dinner with the people in class and several of their coworkers. A few orders of tarte flambee (also known as flammekueche in Alsatian and flammkuchen in German) were ordered as a starter. Tarte flambe is a sort of pizza on very thin flatbread. It is covered with cheese, onions and pieces of pork. I don't especially like pork, but this was delicious.


For an entree I ordered liver. Bull testicles (or possibly penis, Loic's translation was sufficiently vague) were also on the menu.

A giant meringue, naturally.

For dessert I decided on meringue again. This dessert was huge. The meringue melted in my mouth. It was covered with whipped cream covered with dark chocolate powder. Under the meringue were several small scoops of ice cream. This was definitely the best dessert I had during the week.
