The third meeting was at Juri’s house, on Sunday, March 13 at 6:30 p.m. We meet to learn more about the gastronomy of our countries. That is why we stayed at his house to cook directly there, and that between the three of us we knew the process of it.
In my case, I decided to cook a spanish omelette, because it seems to me to be one of the most characteristic dishes of my country and which everyone usually likes and is very easy to prepare. And although it was my first time cooking a spanish omelette, the truth is that it tasted very good although not so much in appearance. I needed five eggs, four potatoes, oil and salt. I taught them how to say the ingredients in Spanish and the preparation process. They helped me peel and cut the potatoes. I think it was quite entertaining for them.
While we were cooking and eating, we played typical Spanish, German and Swiss songs in the background.
On the other hand, Theresa cooked apfelpfannkuchen which are apple pancakes. I helped cut the apples and peel them. Theresa showed me the ingredients in German: three red apples (“apfel”), one cup of flour (mehl), one tablespoon of sugar (“zucker”), three-quarters of a cup of milk (“milch”), eggs (“ eier”) and oil (“Öl”).
First mix the flour, milk and eggs in a bowl until a thick dough remains. Later, in a frying pan with a little oil, add the peeled apple pieces to fry them. When they are toasted, add a spoonful of the dough to the pan with the apple pieces and a little sugar. When the pancake is toasted on the bottom, try to turn it over without breaking so that it is done on the other side. Finally, you can add cinnamon to taste and…. ready to eat!
It has been for the moment, the meeting in which I have learned the most things about Germany and I have enjoyed the most since…. I love eating!
