La Belle Au Bois Gourmand: Kartoffelpuffer

Thursday, February 23, 2012


What could Kartoffelpuffer sound like? Absolutely German!
Although Poland and Czech Republic have their own ways to serve the potato pancakes, these are have their reason to be in Germany eaten espacially outside the Christmas markets.

I had mine in Bremen, then I tasted them once again here, in Turin at La Deutsche Vita.

People like it as a salty dish, I personally love it as they should be eaten so along with apple mousse to give an extraordinary combination of flavours.

Kartoffelpuffer can also be tasted with garlic or mashroom sauce, with sour cream as topping and so on. They're a pillar in the Jewish cuisine where they're know with the name latkes.
