Man preparing  Wendish noodles at the San Antonio Folklife Festival

Dave Goeke, a member of the Texas Wendish Heritage Society, is serving the famous Wendish noodles at the 34th annual Texas Folklife Festival in downtown San Antonio.


  • One egg
  • One half egg shell of water (about 3 tablespoons)
  • One and one-half to two cups of flour

Beat egg and water together. Add a sprinkle of salt and enough flour to form a stiff dough. Roll out thin on a pastry cloth. Let stand to dry, turning over occasionally. Cut into thin strips when dry but still pliable. Cook in a rich chicken broth until tender. Chopped parsley, chopped green onion tops, and a dash of nutmeg may be added for flavor, if desired.
