Here we can recommend recipes and and dishes. Whats is your favorite german meal?
When I was young, I moved to Germany and one of the things that surprised me, was that a lot of germans eat Abendbrot everyday. Abendbrot is a dinner that consists of different breads, cold meat, cheese and vegetables.
My favourite meal is “Abendbrot” as well. They also have a vast variety of sausages to go with it, too. My favourite one is “Leberwurst” ( which is some kind of liver pâté ). I also love their “Spekulatius kekse”, Christmas would not be the same without them. “Spekulatius” cookies are made with a special spice mix of: cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger powder, cardamom and anise
They all look delicious, When I was a kid I had this neighbour once that cook the best apfelstrudel that I’ve ever tasted , I think she was from Austria though…haha
Definitely one thing that is hard to beat is the German bakery.
I read that there are more than 3000 different types of bread that are made and sold in Germany every day.
I personally love the sourdough rye breads and of course the Brezeln!
Potato dumplings are great too! They are usually served as a side dish with a roast but are also tasty just with gravy or roasted the next day!
Sausages very a lot between the different regions. I personally swear on the ones from Nürnberg and Franken!
When I visit Germany I have to stock up on treats from the sweet aisle. Liquorice and gummy bears are a must…the list is too long to mention it all.
Those potato dumplings are called Knödels right? When I was in Germany my host family used to make them all the time. They were Bavarian by the why. I tried to make them at home but it’s never the same
Another thing that surprised me was that they ate apple puree as a side dish and I have to say … it goes perfectly with a “schnitzel”. Oh, and if a German tells you that something is spicy, BELIEVE them!!
