Crispy crust

Veal steak with Sura Kees crust

Any veal steak becomes a regional specialty with a crust of Montafon Sura Kees. 

The French simply know what fine dining is. “Grantier” comes from the French and means to cook with covering of bread crumbs or cheese until a crust forms. Gratinating is used to form a crust in an oven with a grill or with high upper heat as the final step of the cooking process. One can gratinate vegetables and casseroles as well as meat, fish dishes or desserts. For piquant dishes, one uses cheeses and herbs and whipped egg whites with sugar for sweet dishes. In restaurants, there is often a special device used, the so-called “salamander”. It is called that because in ancient times, it was believed that salamanders could survive fires and volcanic eruptions. The small ovens produce extreme heat, quickly forming the crust and making it especially crispy. A suitable baking dish made from metal or heat-resistant glass is critical.

“Sura Kees gratiné also tastes great in combination with other meat such as lamb or pork.”
