« Sesame salmon in orange & miso sauce with pineapple pak choi | Main | Goat's cheese in a spicy tomato sauce with garlic crostini »

Jan 16, 2005



This is one of the desserts prominently advertised in the Loewenbraeu tent at the Munich Oktoberfest, where they had gone for the very literal translation of "Emperor's Nonsense with apple mush" - gramatically correct but not really a marketing triumph!! When a friend eventually threw caution to the wind and ordered it, it arrived as you described - torn up pancakes sprinkled with sugar and, in this instance, apple puree. Delicious!


Hi! I'm a Singapore Girl who ventured to Hungary on my backpacking trip last May, and had the pleasure of eating a similar pancake! I have to admit, the Hungarians, make mean campote! I had a plum stew laced with chocolate sauce! Divine!


compote with chocolate? I think I need to check my Hungarian cookbook! but you're right, whatever my friend timi brings home from there is the ultimate in compote and jam making. Incidentally, I also have another source from who I get home- and handmade paprika (the sweet and the spicy version) and home-distilled schnaps (palincka) way over the official alcohol limit... but bursting with fruit to die for!
