Choucroute garnie à l'Alsacienne 

à l’Alsacienne is a French cooking expression that is often applied to dishes containing sauerkraut, sausage and ham; the dishes might also include or consist of braised meats and potatoes. In practice, it is now being applied to many different ingredients, prepared in many different styles. Alsacienne refers to the region of Alsace, France in north-eastern France. The region has a dual French / German identity and cooking traditions because the territory was passed back and forth between France and Germany over historical periods. Both wine and beer are used in cooking; wines tend to be white wines, as in Germany — [al-zah-SYEHN]
