I love Gelato, Limonicello and fresh, raw green olives. And Pizza. And the cakes you get in Italia.

Bikes? Car's? Make mine a BMW M5 please, or a BMW Bike. Clothes, it's the (wo)man that makes the clothes, not the other way around.

Italian girls mostly reminded me of my Irish Catholic Girlfriend. I mean you can take the Girl out of Cork...

Ciao T

It is "cold dog" and it is extremely dangerous to cholesterol levels, blood sugar and waist lines.

Do not ask me where the name comes from, I have not been able to find it using the all knowing, all seeing eye, "DaGoogle".

You make it by taking a box-tin cake/bread form and several large packages of Leibnitz Butterkeks (Butter Cookies - like english bisquites, but sweet, buttery and tasty, not salty and bland so you must put cheese on top to make them edible - again, these are legalised pot, if you start a pack you must finish and are in danger of buying another one) and a large amount of chocolate (powder is ok) mixed with coconut fat to make a glaze.

You layer chocolate glaze with buttercookies with chocolate glaze with buttercookies until your boxtin is full. Then place in freezer for a few hours, until very cold. Unbox, keep refrigerated and eat in slices. It is a very humble desert, but nevertheless very tasty. Then again, there is "Blaubeertorte mit Sahne"... Also very tasty.

I guess we now can figure where the "Cold" comes from. For the Dog, I suspect this is forever lost in the sands of thyme, just the origin of this most favourite english desert of them all, the spotted dick...

Ciao T

A stack of thin butter cookies layered with chocolate, it has a poor cousin you might have seen, Kit-Kat. Growing up in an Austrian/German community, I miss the neighborhood bakeries. Denmark does have the bear claw, but I could not find any worthwhile pastries when in Denmark.

Sorry posting at same time.

Well, it seems this thread has gone off the rails from the original post. But, I have to ask and maybee Scott and Thorsten can answer. As a kid, growing up in Bavaria, we had a pastry thing called "Schweinohren". Thin layers of dough, lots of butter. Sort-off looked like a bretzel without holes. Found them in Mexico too. What is the English name? E
PS: Thanks for the memory of the kalter Hund!

Have you been sneaking into Pablito's Bakery on your way to work?

Our local name was elephant's ears, in France palmier. It's also amazing how many cultures have a version of fried dough.

LOL. This remark reminded me of some characters from German movie "Man spricht deutsh" (1988) Anyone seen it?
P.S. Yes, "deutsh", not "deutsch"

BMW ...'s = posers ...

Bike, Recently OK, still prefer Aprilla/Ducati .. Italians make better drivers cars/Bikes, IMRO, pootang too. German cars with the exception of Porsche and Mercedes Black , is like German Audio and football, functionally bland to perfection.

Not a pastry person , I eat , but don't crave ............
