  • 4.23 oz buckwheat flour
  • 4.23 oz of white flour “00”
  • 3.38 fl oz water
  • 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 eggs
  • nutmeg and salt


  • 2.82 oz Veroni ham
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 1/2 glass of liquid cream
  • 1 clove of unskinned garlic
  • grated parmesan cheese
  • chopped chives and salt


1. Sift the flour into a mixing bowl, add the buckwheat flour, water, oil and nutmeg mixing together well. Add in the eggs and salt, mixing to combine.
2. If the batter consistency is too thick, add a few tablespoons of water. When bubbles appear in the batter, it is the perfect consistency. Let it rest for a few minutes.
3. In a frying pan, bring to medium heat the butter and garlic clove, then add in the ham cut into strips and cook evenly for a few minutes.
4. Prepare a pot of generously salted water and bring to a boil. When boiling, pass the batter through a large holed sieve or metal grater, allowing little batches to cook at a time.
5. When the Spaëtzle floats to the surface of the water, they are ready. Drain them and toss them with the seasoning. Serve with parmesan cheese and chives.
