On a rerun of The Big Bang Theory Sheldon mentions a Swiss Desert called Volharemusse,
(I don't know how it's spelled, it was prounced Vole-Hare-Mosse.) I googled it and looked for it under "Swiss Deserts" in Wikipedia, no luck. Has anybody out there heard of this, or was it just made up for the show? (like the game The Mystic Knights Of Ka'a.)
Being Swiss I have no idea what that could be. Maybe it's the butchered version of some Swiss-German or French name, or, as you pointed out yourself, it might just be made up.
Any further information on what it is, or just a name?
They way Sheldon, (one of the lead characters, I don't know if you watch the show?) described it Voleharemusse was a kind of pudding with almonds, (maybe like Blancmange.) At the end of the episode He gets the flu and throws it up. The show is now in syndication and I
have been watching it a lot.
The Swiss 'breakfast ' dish that was mentioned is Cholermus, or Swiss pancakes. They actually are more of a supper item rather than breakfast. Here is a link to the transcript:
(The key to a search like this is knowing what to search for. I knew there had to be someone out there with a site dedicated to the transcript of this show.)
Cholermus or Cholermues, also known as Swiss Pancake is, as its name suggests, a Swiss pancake, or "shredded, fried crepe". This preparation should not be confused with Hollermus or Holdermus, which is an elderberry mash.
Cholermus is mentioned in episode 15 of the third season of The Big Bang Theory TV series.
Basically these are large, thin pancakes that are cooked until light brown, then you use two forks to tear the pancake into small pieces and returned to the heavily buttered skillet until crispy and brown...
