Reflection on a Spoon
on top of a
glass of water
Espresso with milk
and milk foam
served with a glass of water
on a silvery tray
The "Emperor's Rubbish" -
a very tongue-in-cheek translation
of what is essentially a pancake gone to
Imperial Court with the help of
a few well beaten egg whites,
cooked like an omelette in a pan
and then torn to pieces,
which in turn are dusted with sugar
and given a few more rounds in the pan
until the sugar caramelizes.
with stewed plums.
While my friends dug into
I had this utterly delicious croissant.
No, I am not a Goodie-Two-Shoes,
I only cooked one too many Schmarrn
for my children and their friends.
They like to eat it with All-American
unsweetened apple sauce
from the grocery store.
I have yet to find unsweetened
applesauce here in Vienna.
And this is for you,
16 January 2011
