Flamm

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.
