7 Food to try in the Alsace Region of France
Border regions seems to have some of the best cuisine and Alsatian Food exemplifies this. The Alsace region, currently part of France, was once a part of Germany. Eating in Alsace, you get a taste of both French and German foods and a third version of the blend of the two cuisines.
Regional Alsace Food Specialties
The Alsatian equivalent of the Pizza, though extremely different. It is made of a thin layer of dough, covered with crème fraîche (rich sour cream), cheese, onions, and bacon (lardons in French). It is baked very quickly in an extremely hot oven so that it gets crispy. You will see it on menus as Flammekueche in Alsatian or Flammkuchen in German.
Note: You can also get this at Trader Joe’s Tarte D’Alsace (though it’s frozen… and not France)
