More than 100 years ago Germanic (German/French) farmers from the region Alsace used to have a baking day once a week. The tarte flambée was originally used to test the temperature/heat of their wood-fired ovens. The tarte flambée is a very thinly rolled out dough, which is topped with crème fraîche or fromage blanc, thin-cutted onions and bacon. Within just a few minutes the farmers could create a simple and a very delicious homemade dish “the tarte flambée”.
There are many names used for the tarte flambée, which depends on the region and their dialects. The tarte flambée is French, Flammkuchen in German and Flammekueche in Alsatian. But all these names mean “pie baked in the flames”. It’s simple, quick, tasty and healthy. You can have it spicy, sweet, vegetarian or vegan and share it with friends and family.
