Even though I have been in Germany since the year 2000 I still have not become fully a friend of the traditional German kitchen. Now Berlin in just Berlin and not really Germany. And the food here is amazing. Great markets, big breakfasts, amazing dinners from all corners of the world. And all is affordable. I can not think of a better place to be.
But I am ashamed that I just have not opened my mind to the German kitchen.
But there are major exceptions. For some reason they all come from Schwarzwald. Smoked ham with a taste of fir tree, badische wine, maultaschen and laugen brezel, that is what I bring with me to Sweden every Christmas. My whole family is hooked.
The Wedding of the Year was in Freiburg. Very authentic from the Black forest. Perfect in every way. Hut ab!
