From the boulangeries and pâtisseries to the charming, relaxed winstubs, one will not go hungry in the Alsace. Be it the hearty stew known as Baeckeoffe (a meat and potato casserole) to the Flammekueche (also called tart flambée, a delicious thin-crust pizza with cheese, bacon, and onions) to the ham with mustard to the choucroute (sauerkraut with ham and/or sausage) to the Munster cheese—not to mention the Kougelhopf, bretzels, and cookies—the Alsace has a lot to offer. It’s a good thing we were active on our visit, between biking, running, and hiking, to burn off some of those calories.
And to further tempt us, free cookies were being given out all day at the pâtisseries in Riquewihr, the village where we were staying.
And for dessert . . .
