The Encounter with Flammkuchen.
Several years ago, I was in a small town in Germany on Christmas. The scene putting a piece of Flammkuchen into my mouth remains vividly in my eyes. I saw the light blue sky towards sunset, the mobile Ferris wheel and the beautiful pavement covered by snow in orange reflecting the streetlights. I was there as if I were in a dream. I met Katrin in such a dreamlike town. My first landing in Germany very late at night, I was looking for a place with an empty stomach and found a bar standing alone with a light. I burst into the bar, though I can’t speak a word of German. Katrin was there with her friends, staring at me from her table, towards the arrival of a strange Japanese. She soon came to the man who doesn’t understand German and made an all-out effort to explain the menu by gesture. On the next day, she took the unknown tourist out to driving and showed around the small town she lives. To the lake to sunbathe in summer, the building of a former secret police, the only whorehouse in town, the hill to glance over town, and so on. She has never taken an airplane nor moved out of town, since she liked the town so much. She explained to me with a big smile on her face. Then, she said “Most people turn into gloomy faces as they get older, but I want to be different. I will live on by enjoying my whole life!”. Katrin comically danced for joy by saying so. It was a trip only for a few days, but Katrin, and the time spent in her town, cheered me up completely. For me, Flammkuchen is a food packed with memories of Katrin, the town she lives, the fun time at the Christmas market and the cheers she gave to me. We will continue to cheerfully produce Katrin’s Flammkuchen, as every day is Christmas. With my love to Katrin and her family.
