Schupfnudeln - Autumn Soulfood

October 25th, 2018 | main dishes

“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.

Important in the preparation is to fry the apples for a very short time at the end, otherwise they will fall apart. Then, it still tastes good, but it does not look that nice anymore.

We are happy to follow the special recommendations of our fishmonger, and then we are sure to have the best and freshest fish in the pan. But what do you do with the newly purchased fish? At this time of year, a wild garlic and white wine sauce is just the thing!

Veal cheeks – tender as butter

This dish is my absolute favourite for a festive multi-course meal. It is a bit time-consuming, but you can prepare it already days before your guests arrive and freeze it. As a side dish dumplings or Spätzle and a salad of lamb’s lettuce with roasted bacon and walnuts are a perfect match. The effort is rewarded by a super tender meat and incredible aromas!
