Guess That Pastry – 2009 – Warmup

Post by blogger | January 7, 2009      

I just wanted some sweet calories washed down with a couple of cappuccinos — after a chilly ski tour above Alpbach, Austria. For that sort of thing Manfred likes to stop in at the historic Boeglerhof Hotel located across the street form Alpbach’s historic 500 year old church. Instead of classic Austrian pastries, Boeglerhof served a few of the more French persuasion. Anyone guess the name of this one? Should be easy for you experts out there.

Austrian Backcountry Skiing

It's rolled, French and orange, anyone know the answer? Should be easy, a warmup for tougher ones later.

    I thought you guys would be quick and you are: roulade a l’orange

    It hit the spot. But I would have liked something radical and Austrian instead. Had something last night that qualified, perhaps again tomorrow. So plenty of blog fodder coming!

    Try some pitiza. Seen it spelled a few different ways. My relatives used to make it, though I haven’t had any for too long. Sweet, dense bread with cinnamon, finely minced nuts, raisins and whatever else someone wants to throw in it. Stretch the dough, pack it up with goodies, roll it and then they wet it and rolled in pastry dough so the outside was all crispy and flaky. When my great-grandmother used to make it I’d never even get a taste…always disappeared sometime between my dad walking in the door and the rest of us making our way into her house. Yep, ol’ pa was a pitiza junkie…wondered why he always had to go check on the garage when Gram was baking the good stuff.

    Lou, my Gram’s house was in downtown Crested Butte…You know the house with the garage covered in license plates? That was hers…she is the one who collected and put all the plates up. Guess it is a pricey B&B now.

    Sorry, but I never consumed one while recently in France and didn’t catch the cool French name.

    if it was filled with apricot jam, it is called “Marillenroulade”.

    Happy to see you liked my country and all its “strange” cultural habits…

    Lucky you are – you have readers in Austria – This is a simple “Biskuitroulade”. Besides the Böglerhof is a quite nice Hotel in Alpbach…

    +1 on “Biskuitroulade” and apricot jam filling. But then I’m from Vienna. Same country as Alpbach, but a few valleys from there, so completely different culture..

Got something to say? Please do so.
