The Flammekeuche is a French dish that originated in the town of Alsace in the east of France, which borders with Germany. It is called the dish of the poor and it is made on bread-baking day as a tradition. The town would gather in front of the communal heat and wait for its heat to subside; this leaves the oven blazing and takes the tart only a few minutes to cook.
How to Make Flammekueche
Alsace, the birthplace of the tart had been shifting between France and Germany for 150 years. This led to Alsace developing an identity unique from that of the French and Germans. From language to cuisines and other aspects of the culture Alsace has become one of the intriguing towns of France.
