Food in School - Trutengeschnetzeltes

Hi there!
today my children said they had for lunch at school, some sort of chicken curry with some yellow sauce which they really liked.. (with rice)..

as they are very fussy I'm really intrigued what they had..
(by the description I'd say korma but not sure...)

the menu says "Trutengeschnetzeltes" and I have no idea what this is..
anybody knows???????
doesn't even sound like chicken to me tbh.

thanks for your help.

Pieces of turkey in a Swiss-imitation of a curry sauce so mild that you wouldn't think it was curry.

Quite often is decorated with pineapple pieces.

Re: Food in School - Trutengeschnetzeltes

Truten is turkey...Geschnetzeltes means chopped up (well, my definition).

I make mine with chopped up carrots and onions, celery too if I have it - as small as possible so the kids don't really notice. Many people add mushrooms, but I am not a big fan of them so I opt out. First I cook the meat (seasoned w paprika, hackfleischgewurtz and some aromat, pepper), add the veggies then when it starts to dry out, I add chicken broth, lower the heat and let it bubble away. I thicken the sauce then at the end w some starch and lob in some craime fraiche or sour cream of cream - depending what it in the fridge. I usually serve it with rice, bur you can do noodles, too. Very child friendly and pretty easy . And I would not call it a curry, as, well, there is no curry spice in it. never seen it with pineapple!

My kids like beef stroganoff, too...

Re: Food in School - Trutengeschnetzeltes

Perhaps it's a Krippe?

I make the stroganoff without mushrooms sometimes, or I just chop them big enough to fish out. Works for us!

at 20 CHF per day per child, I'm so glad they eat the food..
expensive! but I think the food must be good as they are very fussy eaters..
and they make them try everything.. even salad!
something I can't do at home

Don't worry. It's just one chapter in the book "my child the unknown being"
But in school they probably use an old trick. Sit one omnivore child, add the fussy eaters to the same table, serve the omnivore first, wait a minute and let him tuck in and then serve the other ones. Works with almost every child.
