A trip through Germany.


 Germany isn't a large country, but geographically it covers all sorts of places, regions, cultures, religions, therefore all sorts of cooking and recipes.
Here is an exhaustive list of well known German dishes, and I'm going to try to add or explain others in this article.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_dishes
One of my favourites, and unlike 'Steak Tartare' elsewhere in the world, readily available is this Mettbroetchen.jpgmettwurst! A delice......
and Roast chicken.jpg handl brathanchen in some places) Of course there are the famous Bockwurst mit kartoffelsalat or the pasta style dishes 'maultaschen' or 'spatzle' 

maultaschen
  maultaschen and the places who sell them cheaply . Not to forget the famous bratwurst, grillwurst, currywurst etc
Cheap, good and marry themselves with the German bier so well!Schnellimbiss.
Of course, Germany also has quite a few different wines, thousands of biers (beers) and I'll be trying to describe these as well, maybe not here so many are they.  The winebergs are generally on very steep slopes, a very ardous task to plant and harvest....   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/German_wine -  and bier.... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in_Germany - but first, back to the food!
Now this could be a monumental task, but I'm not going into the fine detail, just some examples from all over (you can find deeper explanations in the link above) like bratkartoffeln, kartoffelsalat, bratwurst, currywurst........
 The Germans are widely known as 'sausage eaters' and in fact - by themselves as 'Schnitzel land' (due to the large selection of schnitzels available, mainly from pork, served with a sauce or breadcrumbed with a slice of lemon (the famous Wienerschnitzel). On this link you can find a lot of 'how to' (like make sausages, potato salad, chicken, schnitzel etc......in video form):

'Sausage eaters' - yes indeed, but with such a wide variety that it isn't really fair to brand mark them. My personal favourites, because of their enormous variety and usefulness are 'Aufschnitts' - there are literally HUNDREDS .........usable on bread as a starter, on pizzas- to bump up the meat content...as meals, such as 'Vespers' (lighter evening meals) 
here are some 'Vespers' they may give you some ideas for lighter (or not) evening meals.........
Vespers are most often served on square, rectangular or round wooden platters, generally served with bier. The name comes, obviously, from the monastery and the monks evening meal of 'vespers'.

The Germans have at least one variety of just about everything known, worldwide, from cheesecake to fish/smoked fish, vegetable and pasta, passing by meats and all the other things.

Bread rolls in a basket (deutsch: Brötchen im ...Bread rolls in a basket (deutsch: Brötchen im Korb) (Photo credit:Wikipedia)
During my long stay (30 years) I always found the simpler things the best. Bread and bread rolls, I've eaten the best potatoes of my life (pellkartoffeln) the best smoked eel ever, different pasta dishes than the Italian ones, but similar to them, like 'maultaschen' or 'spaetzle' - you can find them all in the first link to this article. Here it is again:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_German_dishes
I'm NOT going to even start talking about German beers, it makes me 'homesick' http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wheat_beer and there are so many biers in Germany that an encyclopaedia could be written!   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beer_in_Germany
So far as German wine is concerned, although a little on the sweetish side for me, it is very fruity, very varied and generally very enjoyable and lots can be drunk! Look here for some ideas......http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/germanys-wines-and-wine-regions.html
Maybe sometime in the future I'll come back on the bier and wine, schnapps (liqueurs) and other things of German origin.....but - to do that, I'll have to go back again for a longish holiday!
Until then,
Bonne Appétit or 'Guten Appetit!'
