Germany

Germany holds a special place in my heart. Over the years, it has become one of my favorite places to go on vacation.  I first went in 2005, then again in 2007 and back twice for Oktoberfest in 2009 and 2010.  Each trip brought its own adventures and stories, but a few things remain constant:  the genial people, the breathtaking scenery, the overwhelming sense of order and efficiency…and the food.

I love German food, and look forward to every fall when it seems to be showcased everywhere: hearty meats, smoky brats, sausage, sauerkraut…very meat and potatoes…and my mouth is watering just typing this.  And while it really isn’t the season to be eating such hearty fare, I made the sacrifice to do it.

While Germany does have regional cuisines, as every country does, I didn’t really find the regions to be distinct enough to divide it into three like I did for France and Spain.  Therefore, I chose dishes that seemed to be representative of the national cuisine as a whole.
