Join Rita to create a German Onion Tart - a delicious specialty served as the months turn cooler and especially popular when the new wine, or "Moscht" comes out in the fall, a few weeks after crush. Zwiebelkuchen contains onions, as indicated, as well as caraway and often bacon or ham. In comparison to quiche, it is usually baked on yeast dough, like pizza.
This dough and onion combination is particularly flavorful because the lean dough becomes crispy in the oven and does not overwhelm the toppings.

The nominal class fee of $16 includes the hands-on demonstration, recipes, one drink, and tasting. Beer, wine and soda will also be available for purchase. Classes sell out quickly so please reserve your space promptly.
Kulturkueche - German Cooking Series is held monthly for all to learn German culinary traditions. We know your Oma made it better - that was the love.
