    German/Alsatian flavors

    Last Saturday night, I was at a local restaurant run by a couple from Alsace and had Spaetzle with Mushrooms and Spinach. It was wonderful! I want to try to duplicate the recipe but can't find anything similar online. It's pretty simple: Sauteed spinach and sliced mushrooms, homemade spaetzle (found a recipe for that), cheese (got a blend of finely shredded Asiago, Parmesan and a couple more) and a creamy sauce with a little white wine in it. I have everything figured out but the seasoning in the sauce. Salt, white pepper and some nutmeg....but probably something else too. Anybody familiar with this part of France (on the German border) who could guess what other flavors might have been in it?

    I really appreciate you for trying to help!!!!!

    I don't know, but it sure sounds good and will be watching for the answer.

    I pulled out my cookbook from my trip to Germany and most recipes only have salt, pepper, nutmeg, butter and sourcream. Once in awhile you see a touch of sage or basil but not much. I think using a little real cream or sourcream will make a difference too. I can't find a recipe using anything else. Bouillion cubes are used as well.
    Hope this helps. Have fun experimenting!
