65: Kaiserschmarrn (Austria)

For dish #65, Kai and I made this Austrian pancake dish called Kaiserschmarrn (literally ‘Emperor’s folly’). The story goes that Emperor Francis Joseph I was traveling in the Alps one day and stopped by a farmer’s home. The farmer cooked a pancake with all his fanciest ingredients, but was so nervous it broke into pieces – thus the kaiserschmarrn was born. (It’s even better with a splash of rum on the top!).
