Pâtisseries : – Pastries: each party comes out with gentleness osterfladen (egg custard) at Easter, berawecka winter (bun larded pears dried fruit). We must breathe before Christmas scents of anise and spices that permeate every house of Alsace for making chrischtstolle (fruit bread shaped swimmer) or gingerbread. A true classic in Strasbourg. Not to mention the famous bredele these cupcakes with spices and citrus with original shapes, that were once hung on the Christmas tree as a decoration and gifts for children. Today bredele be enjoyed from Advent to Epiphany in all Alsatian homes.
