German Delights: The Scrumptious Reasons to Visit the German Countryside

Hey guys! Welcome back to another post! I’m super excited to discuss today’s topic. One of the very best reasons to travel is to taste new things. I know you’re nodding your head!

One of the best places to really stretch your taste buds is Germany. The wonderful thing about Germany is that is has a lot of countryside action going on. Each region has its own cuisine! So wherever you go, you’ll be sure to be treated to something that you can’t really get anywhere else. Now let me share my best reasons for eating—of course I mean travelling—to Germany!

Maultasche

A traditional dish that’s very reminiscent of ravioli but bigger! When I first heard about it when I visiting Swabia, I was stoked! What you can find inside is a lovely concoction of finely minced meat, spinach, a few veggies, fresh herbs, and even smoked meat.

I particularly loved the history about this dish. As it turns out, this dish was created as a sort of hack to the system during Holy Week where meat was traditionally avoided. They made the meat miniscule and the veggies so large that it completely hid the meat. Well the jig is up and it’s delicious!

Hasenpfeffer

This one is a traditional stew! I don’t know about you guys but I’m crazy for stew! You should probably avoid this if you aren’t cool about eating rabbit but let me tell you: you will be missing out! The meat is cut into manageable sizes and it is super tender when you bite into it. The onions are kind of see-through as it’s braised for while. The marinade of wine and vinegar and seasoning is just divine!

Zweibelkuchen

This is a savory pie that literally translates into “onion cake”. If you’re a fan of French onion soup, you’ll definitely love this one. This one has bacon! So you can expect creamy and savory flavors combining in beautiful harmony.

There are so many other things I can add to this list but I have to cut this short. If you guys have any questions, as always, you can reach me at info@fra-biancoshock.org. Until next time!
