    I'm happy to see we now added Benelux to the German cooking forum.

    I don't know anything about the cooking style, or popular dishes in Luxembourg. Is anyone here familiar with it?

    Luxembourg cuisine is a sort of mixture between French and German cuisine.

    More recently, it has been inspired by the cuisine of its many Italian and Portuguese immigrants.

    Luxembourgers usually adopt the best from each culture.

    When a typical Luxembourg family sits down to its daily meal, the fare normally consists of simple, hearty foods; but when celebrating a special occasion or when entertaining guests, they will serve the finest French cuisine accompanied by excellent local wines.

    Typical Luxembourg specialties include:

    Thuringer - These tasty little sausages that resemble a spicy version of German Bratwurst are sold by street vendors and at roadside stands. They are inexpensive and delicious.

    Luxembourg ham - A smoke-cured uncooked ham resembling Italian Proscuitto crudo. It is sliced paper-thin and frequently served with fresh bread as an appetizer or first course at meals.

    Gromper keeschelche (potato pancakes) - The Luxembourg variety are delicately spiced with chopped onion and parsley before deep-frying. Those available at roadside stands are unfortunately a poor substitute for the home cooked ones.

    Kach Keis (cooked cheese) - A soft cheese spread that has the consistency of rubber cement and tastes like no other cheese. A close comparison might be melted French Camembert cheese.

    Pate - Every charcoutereie in Luxembourg sells several different "homemade" varieties of this meat spread.

    Quetsche tort - This plum tart, along with the peach, cherry and pear tarts are typical Luxembourg desserts and can be found in almost every Patisserie. (Along with a large selection of French pastries)

    Hope that helps a bit icon_smile.gif

    just like in CH, do make sure you are NOT starving when arriving at the restaurant in L icon_smile.gif 1 hour is the minimum waiting time [as in it takes a long time until your food is ready]. and also, restaurants are open for dinner around 7pm is the earliest.
