Friday, December 4th, 5pm ET.

You will need:

  • 400 g flour
  • 1 package yeast (about 2 ¼ tsp)
  • Salt
  • 200 ml water
  • 4 medium onions, red or white
  • 200 g sour cream (or mix of crème fraiche and sour cream to = 200 g)
  • Bacon if desired
  • Grated cheese if desired, a cup or so of Emmentaler, Gruyere, or similar

For the vegan version – cashew crème topping:

  • 1 ½ cups raw cashews
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 2 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tsp nutritional yeast
  • ½ tsp miso (if you have it around)

People like to drink this with a regional, light white wine from Baden or the Elsass, but go local. Sandbanks winery has a nice ‘Dunes White’ and ‘Riesling Gewürztraminer’. Southbrook has an organic ‘Connect White’. Or whatever you want. No shame in a local beer either.
