In Other News – 17 November 2015

It was around a year ago that the Tasty Tuesday was around Pizza, one of life’s greatest gifts – and one of my very favourite foods. Sometimes though, you want something simpler, lighter – a little fresher, a little more French.

Here then is the Flammekueche – a thin-crust flatbread that hails from Alsace, a region in the North of France along the Rhine and just a stone’s throw from Germany. The region has shifted between French and German control for centuries, so it’s got a culture influenced by both. Quite possibly its most famous food is the Flammekueche (Flammkuchen in German, and Tarte Flambe in the rest of France) and it’s a genuinely delightful thing; a thin crust, spread with a layer of Crème fraiche- and then almost always covered in lardons (French bacon), onions and scallions. It’s lighter and crispier than pizza – but just as moreish. I’ve had a pretty decent one at the Neighbourgoods Market in Braamfontein – but the caveat here is that if you do venture there, you’re bound to run in to an army of hipsters.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

  • Hammersteyn

    Nice looking appetizer

  • Mistake Not…

    “but the caveat here is that if you do venture there, you’re bound to run in to an army of hipsters”
    I can hear it now:
    “Ja, man, I only eat Flammekueche.”
    “What is Flam…Flammi…ki…?”
    “Seriously, bro? If you don’t know what Flammekueche is I don’t even.”

    • Hammersteyn

      I’d beat him with his Ipad.

      • HvR

        Ipad will bend before he starts bleeding.

        • Sageville

          Use his clip-on-man-bun to dress the wound….

        • Hammersteyn

          i’ll choke him with his man bun

          • HvR

            Ewwwww that means touching it

          • Hammersteyn

            I’ll wipe my hands on his short pink shorts

          • Wha?!

          • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja


      • Mistake Not…

        People would think you’re beating a homeless person.

    • Mistake Not…

      • Generic ZA

      • Grand Admiral Chief SpaceNinja

        • Hammersteyn

          Overpriced oily cheesy shite

      • Hammersteyn

      • Come on Geoff, I know you want to…

        • You know how they make them don’t you? They steal all the leftovers from Butlers Pizza, whack it into off oil, slap it into some dough, and BOOM!

        • Hammersteyn

          Triple rip off

        • Captain JJ the Goo

          When I’m drunk this is the best thing in the world. When I’m a person, I can’t stand to even look at it.

    • HvR

      With the raw base and skimping on meat and cheese actually looks likes Deboniars just needs some day old mayo.

      • and “special DeboNOOOOOS” BBQ sauce…

        • HvR

          and do not forget to sticky tape a mystery meat sausage to the side.
