A culinary journey through German-speaking countries with our budding cooks.
Grade 7 students discovered some of the most typical German dishes and presented the recipes listing the ingredients and explaining the step-by-step procedures in German. Some of our budding cooks have also tried the recipes at home cooking with their parents.
It has been a trip from the South to the North exploring typical dishes:
from the Austrian “Wiener Schnitzel” to the Viennese “Sachertorte”, to emperor Franz Joseph´s favourite dessert “Kaiserschmarrn”, to the characteristic “Kartoffelsalat”, the typical German “Spätzle”, the Black Forest gateau “Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte”, and also the “Mamorkuchen”, the well-known “Apfelstrudel”, the “Berliner Pfannkuchen” (also called “Krapfen”), and the “Bratwurst”.
If you visit Berlin you must taste the famous “Currywurst mit Pommes” or the “Eisbein mit Sauerkraut”!
At this point you might be hungry…it is time to cook another typical German dish with our Grade 7 cooks!
