tarte flambee

wilma letford Aug 25, 2000 02:55 PM

on a recent trip to colmar france I had a tarte flambee
or flammekueche. It consisted of a thin crust topped
with cream. cheese. grilled onions and bacon. Does
anyone know how the crust was made? It is not a quiche
the crust was flat, thin and almost cracker like texture.

    I usually make a tarte flambee with a good pizza crust recipe.

      it is nothing else than a very, extremely thin bread dough.... topped with all those delicious toppings...!!

      Andre Soltner, the original owner/chef of Lutece, used to make Tarte Flambee as a lagniappe from time to time. The recipe in his Lutece Cookbook calls for 7 ounces of what he terms "Basic Bread Dough." Does that help?
