GREAT TASTE ON THE KRUU STREAM-WEDNESDAY AND FRIDAY

Karen HauringLast week in the Club Room we explored the holiday food of Germany with Karin Hauring.  Karin is a long-time resident of Fairfield, but she was born in Hechingen, Germany in the Black Forest region of the country.  Her food sensibilities were developed with a multi-fold of influences from the surrounding countryside, including the nearby Rhine river, Italy and Switzerland to the south, Austria to the southeast, and on the west the Alsace region of France.  

I am a great pasta lover and spaetzle is a type of egg noodle found in Karin’s home city and in the neighboring areas including Alsace, Switzerland, and Austria.  She taught us how to make it, and prepared another dish-red cabbage and apples-that was and still is a standard in her home.  For dessert she made a pumpkin cheese cake, which I think is an influence from her adopted country.  It’s simple-no crust-and delicious, so it’s an easy addition to a holiday menu.

Bloggers to Authors on this week's GREAT TASTE

Ariella Elizabeth-5 days oldAriella Elizabeth Severin is the sole reason last week's GREAT TASTE episode came from our archives.  I can ecstatically report that she is a terrific eater; weighing in at 5 pounds when she left the hospital and tipping the scales two day's later already back to her birth weight of 5 pounds 7 ounces.  As a proud and thankful first-time nonno (grandfather in Italian), I look forward to many meals together as we explore the diverse and delicious world of food.
