"Fuatscha grassa" is the name that the people of the Engadine give to the sweet shortcrust pastry with which they make their famous Engadine walnut cake. But it is the filling that is truly memorable: walnuts, honey, caramel and cream. Engadine confectioners who worked in Italy, France and America in the 18th century are said to have brought the recipe home, perfecting it here. Today, Engadine walnut cake is one of the gastronomic icons of Graubünden, a Swiss culinary classic that is exported all over the world.
