This poor old Alsatian pastry troll
looks like he's had it!
Just the words flanking him
give me a rapacious hunger for the sweetness
of sugar-dusted Gugelhupf (marble cake),
a cold Riesling and the region's famous, doughy Flammekeuche
(tarte flambee made with creme fraiche, onions and lardons).
Ok that's it,
I'm off to the kitchen!
