This dish is said to have been requested for the first time by the Westphalian baron Alfred von Renesse in Münster from the landlady of the famous restaurant “Pinkus Müller”. His intention: He wanted to make fun of the landlady, because the Westphalian “Pillewoermer” actually means “earthworms” translated into High German. The good woman did not let herself be fooled and served the baron only strips of ham, which, however, look very similar to earthworms.
