||Traditional Beef Soup With Sliced Crêpe
Frittatensuppe in Austria, Polévka se svítkem in the Czech Republic, Flädlesuppe in Germany,
is a soup, traditionally a beef broth or a consommé, with slices of thin crêpe. Flädle
is a dish from Schwaben, the region in southwestern Germany where cuckoo clocks, Porsches,
the Black Forest Cake and movie director Roland Emmerich come from.
Flädle are made as salty, plain crêpe-style pancakes (Palatschinken). In Austria Flädle
are called Frittaten; svítek in the Czech Republic. They are tightly rolled up and
sliced into coils, then served in a clear soup.
