Please send some to me through the blogosphere................yum yum so delicious.
What an opulent column......It has me thinking...What does this remind me of?It is reminiscent of the component slabs of a tottering, classic column in Carthage or Thebes.Yet it is organic in form, rounded, curvilinear...A stylized column...(Yet, it cannot be a stylite because, though the component neo-beutelchens are architectural, no ascetic would perch on these...)Of course, how obvious! You are based in Wiens...Though you remind us of the classical, and even are neo-classical in composition, you are nonetheless acting as a bridge to modernity...And what would that define, if not Vienna's Jugendstil? So this must be neo-Art Nouveau! ...(Merisi, I very much enjoy your posts. Thank you for adding a burst of Viennese style and flavour into everyone's day, certainly into mine.)
Don't tell me, Merisi, that you intend to eat all of those yummy treats by yourself.
One for you, one for me and we go halves on the third one ....right?
How elegantly poised! I see something voluptuous and sensual in that column.
Um and can I smell kaffee auch? Here I am trying a packet of Builders English Breakfast flavour crisps (not easy to explain)..but I think I fancy breakfast with Merisi in Wien much,much more !
Oh yes, the Faschingskrapfen - so many delicious kinds to choose from here in Munich too!And I loved, loved your gorgeous market photos :)Happy New Year!
My favorite sweets! And I am quite good at making them;) Great idea, and shot, and....I go now to make some....donuts :)
are they hard to make ? Do I dare ask you to make some for me if I come to Vienna , one day .They look so delicious
ELIZABETH,has the package arrived yet? ;-)SEPIRU CHRIS,Neo-Art Nouveau, brilliant! :-) Solves the dilemma of being pre-postmodern or nor. ;-)Thank you very much for your kind words. BARBARA MARTIN,I have four kids, imagine me even thinking about having these treats all by myself. *giggle*DAVID MCMAHON,I am sure we could come up with a satisfying solution! :-)WANDRING STAR:I agree! :-)(My answer to the Parisian macaron towers!)
.KURWENAL:Would you mind describing the flavour sensation you experience while biting into one of these Builder's (?) bricks, er, crisps? ;-)
.STEPHANIE LEVY:Saturday I noticed a new variety of Faschingskrapfen, at my corner bakery: Rauchfangkehrerkrapfen! Chimney Sweep's Donut, imagine that. *giggle* They were black with poppy seeds on top. I have to enquire about the filling! Soot?
.Mélanie,"Are they hard to make?"Oh, Mélanie, that is a tricky question. I'd say it depends on whom you ask. To some people it is as easy as pie (yup, pie - there the trouble starrts, for me). If you ask me, my answer is still, it depends. I could write a novella about the years of practicing it took to perfect the recipe and the method, dozens of recipes tried, lots of cooking down the to hazardous waste site. Tears, of frustration and of joy. Better not ask. Or let's rephrase: Does it seem easy to me now, after spending half my adult life learning to make them? Yes! :-)Please don't ask me about "easy as pie"! ;-)
Note to Food Magazines:I am ready to write the ultimate article about Viennese Donuts!;-)
I prefer the Sachertorte
.ArneA,there's a time for everything sweet under the sun! ;-)
Crisps...there are some strange new flavours on sale at the moment, so I have tried. Onion Bhaji,,,Ok, spicy. Fish and Chips crisps...not too bad, vinegar and fish batter. Cajun Squirrel...rather like cardboard, and the Builders Breakfast is supposed to be like egg,bacon,sausage...and is just bizarre. I certainly prefer salami and a good bread.To be honest, if I had the energy to run a photo-blog like you Merisi,I do not think the English breakfast would make a scrumptious picture.
Now I'm salivating. At least I have a cup of fresh-brewed dark roast coffee to take some comfort in. Otherwise, I would have to make a bakery run.Thank you for visiting me this morning. And congratulations on your POTD acknowledgment. Richly deserved.
They look just too delicious! I can't stop wondering why they are still left...so many hungry bloggers here:)Greetings from the snowy and freezing Helsinki.
My 2 year old saw this and said...a doughnut snowman! Indeed :)Found you from David's blog.BradleyThe Egel Nest
Liebe Merisi,Rauchfangkehrerkrapfen!Now that I have never heard of.That I really want to try. You will take a picture, right?(I am pressing my thumbs to be lucky enough that you will...)Tschüss,Chris
These are so pretty!I'm going to have to learn how to make these. They are so wonderful!
So pretty and scrumptious looking!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
