The culinary histories of palaces and monasteries in Baden-Wuerttemberg

The monks of Maulbronn Monastery are said to have invented the “Maultasche”, a type of ravioli-like pasta. How did they manage to do that? It is said that during Lent, the monks unexpectedly received a piece of meat. But meat was strictly forbidden during fasting! To prevent the meat from spoiling and to hide the offense from God, a monk supposedly had the idea to chop up the meat, mix it with herbs and then wrap it in pasta dough. That’s how the Maultasche was supposedly born. Whether fact or fiction, it is true that in the monasteries, monks cooked inventively with lots of vegetables and herbs from their own gardens. Even if the historical facts aren’t 100% accurate – the story is good. And the result, the Swabian national dish, is a delectable treat!
