My name is Thierry Langer. I was born and raised in Nice, France. Because my father had fled from Austria in 1938. He ended up in Nice which looked like a safer place for a while as it was under Italian occupation during most of WWII. It is a little known fact that Italians actively saved many Jewish lives. My family is forever thankful.
My father's parents were born in Krakow His sister, my aunt, Ruth Langer*, is the family hero. She was one of the best swimmers in Austria, but she refused to compete in the Berlin Olympics in 1936. Her story is in full display at the Holocaust museum in Washington, D.C. She was also an amazing cook who would teach the family how to perpetuate the culinary traditions from France, Austria, Hungary, Poland. Her legacy is the DNA of Kaisy’s Delights®.
Amongst so many other things, my father helped me discover the unspeakable beauty of skiing in the Alps. One day, as I was having lunch in South Tyrol, I could read a name on the menu. Kaiserschmarrn. Kaiserschmarrn? Really? The name I had always heard from my glutonous father? I had to try it. And I understood the magic. A truly amazing Imperial Mess of a dessert. Of course, Americans love it for breakfast. And it is the famous Kaisy®.
