Chef: Michael Wendel
We once again have the pleasure of introducing one of Taipei's finest chefs, Michael Wendel. A German who has resided in Taipei for over 20 years now, Chef Wendel has a master's degree in baking and produces some of the finest baked goods one will ever have the privilege of tasting. This month, he takes us into the back room (where the magic happens) of his establishment, Wendel's German Bakery and Bistro, and teaches us how to make a tasty dish, Strawberry Delight (large NT$365, small NT$195).
Flour 100g, milk 125g, egg yolks 60g, egg whites 90g, a dash of salt, sugar 50g, Strawberries 250g, butter 50g
1. Take the milk, egg yolks and salt and mix them together.
2. Prepare the sugar and egg whites in a separate bowl. Then take your Step 1 mixture and beat/mix the two together.
3. Take your mixture and fry it until you have a golden-brown pancake. Then randomly cut your pancake into random-sized pieces.
4. Finally, take your cut-up pancake, mix it together with chopped-up pieces of strawberry, sprinkle sugar on top, and enjoy a delightful snack!
