Making a Kaisy, Short for Kaiserschmarrn, with Kaisy’s Delights
Have you ever heard of a Kaiserschmarrn?
The Kaiserschmarrn is a traditional recipe from Tyrol. Kaiserschmarrn means “imperial mess,” because it looks like a mess when it is being prepared, but the emperor used to love it!
Thierry and Nathalie, owners of Kaisy’s Delights in Rehoboth and Lewes, stopped by the Kirby and Holloway Kitchen to show us how it’s done.
Thierry and Nathalie were born in Nice, France and moved to Delaware four years ago. They really enjoyed Kaiserschmarrn and making them had turned into a family tradition. So they decided to open up a place that sold Kaiserschmarrn in this area. Thierry and Nathalie opened up Kaisy’s Delights in Rehoboth four years ago and they opened their Lewes location a year and a half ago.
Check out the recipe below to make a Kaiserschmarrn at home, or stop by one of their locations. You can add fruit, ice cream, or breakfast meats and eggs to the dish. They also serve coffee and potato latkes.
