Maultaschen (German Raviolis)


Only the scanned article of his mothers at the moment, but he is working on it for us. Anyone with any ideas is free to help us.

Basically, here's the idea.

Maultaschen have been around in the Schwaben area of Germany for a LONG time. One theory mentioned in the scanned article above claims that it goes back to the 13th century when they were introduced to the Italian ravioli and decided they could do it better. Since then, Maultaschen have become and remained a staple food to the current day.

What we're after is two things. The first is some more solid documentation about the history of Maultaschen. I can probably get in touch with some of my German contacts, but any help is appreciated.
The second is that we'd like to organise a Maultaschen-making workshop. Since they are often made in batches of 80-120 depending on size, it doesn't make sense to keep them all to yourself if just two are enough for a full meal.

Let us know if you're interested.
