Chocolate Cream Pie

A crunchy crust and pudding-like filling make this pie a standout.


This classic French pastry, whose name means thousand leaves (for its delicate multiple layers), is known as the napoleon. The name is probably a reference not to the diminutive Corsican emperor, but to the multilayered confections of Naples.

This traditional Tunisian stew is packed with flavor from tender beef spare ribs, cilantro-spiked meatballs, and spinach.

Spatzle (Garlic Dumplings with Emmentaler)

Spatzle means little sparrows in German.
