Spatzle is a small Austrian pasta-type dumpling (the word spatzle meaning little sparrows) served in soups or with meat dishes. I remember this spatzle dish very well from my chef school days at Warwick Chef School.While tasting this at our lunch table I just thought it was the ultimate best dish ever! I could not stop talking about how lovely it was. Because it is an Austrian/South-German dish, I have never tasted it before my chef school days. If you have never tasted this before, treat yourself to a restaurant that serves this, or even better, see the recipe below and try make it yourself! I can guarantee you that you will eat up everything on your plate! For the suckers out there still believing in Banting and Keto diets, sorry for you but you loose out - the best way to stay healthy is eat moderately and doing exercise. You cannot expect that only changing your diet - by cutting out breads and starches - which is also in the food pyramid - will let you loose weight. I strongly belief that the food pyramid is there for a reason.
