Most bakeries in this country seem to think that filo pastry around some apple filling is a strudel.I disagree (violently) so,despairing,yearning and frustrated,I made a batch today with proper strudel pastry,stretched so thin,as my mother told me the family maid in Berlin used to say,you could read your love-letters through it.It's a pity I can't record the smell from the oven...If you come by the studio in the next few days around tea-time,you might get a slice.Did you know,by the way that a Strudel (in German) is a whirlpool?Did you? Posted by Picasa
