    We are hosting a 16 year old German exchange student from the Swabian region of Germany and I would like to surprise him on his birthday in October with some German dishes. He said his favorite dish is "Kalbsrahmschnitzel." Any suggestions?

    There is an excellent German recipe site out there. I will see if I can find it. Several crashes ago I had it bookmarked.

    As to what it is from a European menu:

    Wiener Schnitzel oder Kalbsrahmschnitzel
    mit gemischtem Salat

    Breaded Veal Escalope or Veal Escalopes topped
    with Cream Sauce served with mixed Salad

    Looks like Veal Escalopes topped with a cream sauce.

    This has Kalbsschnitzel mit feinen gemusen perhaps you can sub in a favorite cream sauce? or find one where I found the recipe in the German section at

    Kalbsschnizel mit feinen gemusen [veal rounds with veggies]

    still can't find the other site icon_rolleyes.gif

    Also here is a list of cooking terms that you might need:

    and of course here:

    I think your student could give you some suggestions from these. I wouldn't tell it is for the birthday. Say you want to compare it with our PA Dutch food since it comes from a German background and Tradition. [Google the PA Dutch for more info] You might also want to try a day of Pennsylvania Dutch cooking too since it is German Pennsylvanian and might find it interesting for you and the student.

    edited to add. I found the site but the recipe page link is not working. When I can get it I wil post it for you.

    Note also here is recipes from the German Embassy in DC page.

    Hi there, well I have been 'the German exchange student' twice in my life, once in Nrthern Ireland and once in New Zealand and your idea is really sweet! I'd like to let you know though that I always really liked the fact that I got to try different food from what I knew, it was part of the whole cultural exchange and experience, but I guess if they stay a little longer they have a chnce to do that anyways.

    Kalbsrahmschnitzel is Filet of Veal in a Cream Sauce.

    I'll see if I can find you a recipe and translate it.......

    Here you go:

    Wiener Kalbsrahmschnitzel

    4 veal filet steaks, sliced thinly, approx. 5 oz each
    3 Tbsp Butter flavoured shortening
    4 fl oz beef broth
    125 g double cream (I'm not sure what double cream is in the US, it's the one with a very high fat content) or creme fraiche
    1 pinch lovage
    salt, to taste
    pepper, to taste

    Heat the shortening in a pan and fry the veal for 3-4 mins each side over medium heat.
    Season with salt and pepper and set aside, keep warm.
    Add the broth to the pan, bring to a boil making sure you scrape in all the bits left from frying the veal.
    Add the cream and season to taste with finely crushed lovage.
    Serve with the veal.

    Sounds simple and easy to me! icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif

    My best friend is Swabian....if I can ever catch up with her I'll ask!!

    When they do German cooking the do alot of pork in usually a wine/sour cream type sauce and serve spaetsle (spelling) with it! A green salad with a viniagrette dressing....for dessert is usually an apple torte or something in that nature.

    But I'll see if she has any ideas for you!!!
