Experience traditional Alsatian design with our diverse range of pottery cookware. The ideal cookware for preparing classic dishes like “Baeckeoffe” and “Kugelhopf” (also spelled Kouglof) involves using traditional, durable molds which are not only functional but also add to the authenticity and flavor of these dishes.

Baeckeoffe: This Alsatian dish translates to “baker’s oven” in English, as it traditionally involves marinating meat (usually beef, pork, and lamb), potatoes, and vegetables in white wine and juniper berries overnight, then slow-cooking it in a sealed alsatian ceramic pot. The key to a perfect Baeckeoffe is the seal; the dough used to seal the lid of the cooking pot ensures that all the flavors are tightly locked in during the slow cooking process. Ceramic or earthenware pots are preferred as they evenly distribute the heat and help in developing a subtle crust on the surface of the dish.

Kugelhopf: This is a famous Alsatian and South German cake, known for its distinctive ring shape. It is typically baked in a special, fluted ceramic mold (kugelhopf molds), which gives it its traditional textured crust and soft interior. The mold’s central tube ensures that the thick batter cooks evenly, providing the classic dense yet tender texture. Kougelhopf is often enjoyed as a sweet cake with raisins and almonds, dusted with powdered sugar, or as a savory treat with bacon or nuts.

For both these dishes, using the right mold is crucial. It not only impacts the cooking technique but also the presentation and flavor of the dish. Traditional molds made of ceramic or cast iron are often recommended because they retain heat well and distribute it evenly, allowing for a gradual and thorough cooking process. These materials also add a rustic charm to the presentation of these hearty dishes.
