  1. sounds like the "Rieser Bauerntorte", served in the region around the village Noerdlingen. It's an Applecake with a dense crust and the filling is apple puree. Sorry I've no reciepe but will be in Noerdlingen in about three weeks to get one. If this cake sounds familiar to that one you've had once, I'll post it then.
  2. Reservations can be done by call each day (except Sundays and Mondays) at 15:00 o'clock and then you can ask about the menue beeing served for dinner. If you don't like a course, changes can be possibly done on desire.
  3. There is no recommendable place serving regional specialities within the walking distance you mentioned. The restaurant "Schlosswirtschaft Schwaige" in the Nymphenburg Castle offers regional dishes. May be the new owner serves now better food. I haven't been there lately. There are two restaurants in the Nymphenburg-Neuhauser aera which I can recommend: "Broeding" http://www.broeding.de/ and "Zauberberg" http://www.restaurant-zauberberg.de/restau...-zauberberg.htm May be these Restaurants are within the 15 to 20 minutes walk but it depends where you'll stay.

    Help Identify this mushroom

    These are definitely king trumpet mushrooms, but in a very poor condition. (The latin name is Pleurotus eryngii). Also known as King Oyster, Pleorote du Panicaut, Argonane, Bouligoule, Champignon de Garrigue, Cardoncello, Cardarello. I would say throw it away.

    Dinner! 2008

    Thank you. Because of what did you chuckle? Did I made a mistake, or did I use expressions which don't excist in the English Language? The protrusion is made of white chocolate. I used a palette knife to spread liquid chocolate onto a silicon foil and placed it into a freezer to harden.

    Dinner! 2008

    We had for yesterday's Dinner Soup: Lemongrass-Cappuccino with shrimps and ginger skewer First course: Steamed codfish loin on cucumber noodles with mashed potatoes and two mustard sauces Second course: Lamb loin with herbed crust on provencal vegetables with eggplant terrine, dried tomatoes and garlic-lemon sauce Dessert: Thai-Mango with Gianduja-creme on coconut cookie with ivoire-praline icecreme and mango-maracuja foam.
  7. You forgot Diethard Urbansky at Dallmayr's the second 2* Restaurant in Munich besides Tantris. Sorry I didn't see the first Message, where Urbansky is mentioned.

    Brittany

    The omelette is a salted mixture of beaten eggwhites and eggyolks fried in a pan and folded up. The bottom and top part is some sort of solid whereas the middle is still soft and starts to become liquid again when served. Did you ever had beaten raw eggwhites seasoned with salt? Somethig like that tastes this omelette. That's not my cup of tea.

    Forget about La Mère Poulard. It's interesting seeing the men whipping eggs in these copper bowls. The windows are open and you might have a look to the procedure in the kitchen, but the dish "Omelette a la Mère Poularde" is nothing to have been tasted. I didn't like it and after the first bit I've sent it back to the kitchen. Even the other meals are not worth to step in. Cancale, St.Malo and Erquay are much more better places to eat. (Remember the adresses I've sent to you).

    Rumtopf

    I made the last rumtopf years ago and the ingredients have been for a 3 liter pot. 250 g strawberries 250 g peaches peeled and diced 250 g cherries, stones removed 250 g red currants 250 g plums, stones removed 250 g Abricots, peeled and diced 750 g sugar 0,7 liters rum 54% I added the fruits at their seasonal peak and let sit the rumtopf until december 25th. Apples and blackberries don't become soft that's why I can't recommend to use it for rumtopf fruits.

  12. I second TGullet's question re: G-Munich?? I'm heading to Munich next weekend and looking for a few interesting dinners. Thanks for the tip, John, I did check out the NYT article...but looking for some feedback for any members. ← I've never been at "G" but liked chef Holger Stromberg's dishes at a charity event. He is currently the German soccer team cook at the European soccer championship and he was the youngest Michelin star cook ever. I can't follow Nick Lauder's report about the "Ederer". Have been several times there and food and service were nothing like disappointing. May be chef Ederer was on tour and not present when Lauder had lunch or dinner there.

    New German Cuisine?

    Nils Henkel succeeded Dieter Müller and is now the chef in the Restaurant "Dieter Müller" at Schloss Lerbach, Bergisch Gladbach. Will now serious coulinary changes occur in one of the best restaurants in Germany. Possibly not, because Henkel is since september 1997 at Dieter Müller's and some of his coulinary creations have been already on the manual. Dieter Müller will still run his coulinary school and act as the restaurant's patron.
  14. There are three recommendable restaurants. I've been in the last one and was impressed. It's not only the meal but also the show with it. 1. Griggler Stube, Burg vital Hotel, Familie Thomas Lucian, Oberlech 568, 6764 Lech am Arlberg, Österreich ; Tel.: +43 (5583) 3140 ; E-Mail: office@burgvitalhotel.at 2. Brunnenhof, Gourmethotel , Frau Angelika Thaler , Strass 146 , 6764 Lech am Arlberg, Österreich; Tel.: +43 (5583) 2349 ; E-Mail: info@brunnenhof.com 3. Kochart, Robinson Select Alpenrose , Zürs 82 ; 6763 Zürs am Arlberg, Österreich ; Tel.: +43 (5583) 2271 ; E-Mail: alpenrosezuers@robinson.de Sunday and Monday closed. Reservation necessary.
  15. The recipe looks like the German "Hefezopf" recipe. The amout of each ingredient in your recipe seems to be nearly three times the value of a normal sized Hefezopf. I'll check out my recipe books and send you the recipe and how to prepare it. "Cimakuta" may be derived from "Sommerkuchen" but thats another one. It would be helpfull to know where the Grandmother came from to find out the basics.
