My name is Anne, mother of 3 girls, and with my husband Jean-Luc, we have a total of 5 children.
We are located in the city of Kensington.
After 15 years of working as a notary, I got the idea one day of founding an inter-company daycare center.
I built a team, found the location, obtained permits and prospected businesses.
Two years ago, Jean-Luc decided to move his business to the Bay Area. No worries, I love adventures!
I left the daycare project to my partner in France ... and started to work on my English skills!
I wondered what I would do here. The daycare for little ones was too restrictive.
I began to think back to my roots. I have always liked the family kitchen
and as a native of Strasbourg in Alsace, my options for delicious recipes was endless!
Although there are many recipes, the Flammekueche is definitely one of my favorites.
It's always very tasty, easy to eat with fingers, and pairs very well with a glass of white wine or a good beer !
I worked on my project, set a budget, designed a menu, an ambiance, and got certified to work with food!
I'm ready to conquer the east bay, then San Francisco, in the peninsula...
Many more beautiful projects to come!
About The Flammekueche
The Flammekueche is a single dish made of a thin dough in a rectangular shape
covered with a fromage blanc and crème fraîche (french product),
seasoned and garnished with bacon and onions...
(look at the page "Savory tarts"). It is then cooked on stone, in a wood-fired oven.
In time, farmers used to bake bread, when the oven was too hot to bake bread,
they replaced it with a Flammekueche which is cooked in 2-3 minutes.
The recipe varies from one village to another.
Minor variations focus on the form, the cheese-cream mixture and seasoning.
There is also a sweet Flammekueche garnished with apple slices ...(look at the page "Sweet tarts").
Come enjoy it, you will see,
the Flammekueche is a unique experience!
