Related to Flammkuchen is a dish called "Zwiebelkuchen" or "Zwiwwelkuche" in local dialect. It similar like Flammkuchen, although often thicker and the onions are not raw but fried before added as topping.
The main season for Zwiebelkuchen is autumn, when it is being served with the new wine. This new wine has nothing to do with (Beaujolais) Primeur, which is no longer fermenting. "Neuer Wein", the new wine, is still fermenting, tastes slightly sweet and is available as red or white new wine.
The new wine versions in my photos look quite different, but this has to do with the fermenting stage. The ones in the first two photos are higher concentrated and the fermentation has progressed more. We had these on the marvellous terrace of Rheinstein Castle, on a beautiful sunny autumn day. The other photos were taken in Forst, at one of the typical Straußwirtschaften.
