Adventure Package: Germany

Germany

Savor the Gourmet Adventure from Germany



Germany’s cuisine has been refined over the centuries with influences from nearby countries such as Austria, Switzerland and Italy to name a few. Many people think of classic dishes such as Bratwurst (sausage) or Sauerkraut (fermented cabbage) when picturing German food, but not only has their cuisine risen through the ranks, but Germany now claims 2nd place for the most Michelin Guide awarded restaurants after France!

Traditionally, a German Frühstück (breakfast) may include bread or rolls with marmalade, honey and other spreads in addition to cheeses, cold cuts, cereals, and eggs. These are enjoyed with coffee, tea, milk, and/or juice. Mittagessen (lunch) was the main meal of the day followed by Abendbrot (literally, ‘evening bread’), a smaller meal at dinner time. However, many people nowadays prefer a smaller Mittagessen and larger family Abenbrot. Dinners typically consist of more breads, meats, cheeses, with a variety of vegetables and potatoes. There are also smaller snacks throughout the day such as Pausenbrot (recess bread), Brotzeit (bread time), and Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake) which is similar to England’s 5-O’clock tea. Do you see a common theme emerging?

Brot (bread) is a truly important staple at a German table and luckily, there are roughly 600 types of breads and around 1,200 types of pastries/rolls to choose from! Other worthy mentions are Zwiebelrostbroten (steak with fried onions), Maultaschen (ravioli), Spargel (asparagus - especially white asparagus), Rote Grütze (red fruit pudding) and Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte (Black Forest cake). There are many more outstanding dishes to choose from, but take a stab at these recipes from our featured winery and have fun pairing them with your German wines!
