Things You Need To Know About German Cooking

We cannot define German cooking due to the fact that almost all German regions have their own variations and specialties to try out. Southern Germany share various specialties with Switzerland and Austria and Southwest German cooking is highly influenced by French cooking.

Eastern Germany cooking showcases an Eastern European flavor and we have various dishes that are shared among all German regions, although prepared differently. The best example is “Sauerkraut” as every region will have a different recipe and technique used to cook and prepare the dish.

Germany has a relatively northern positioning in Europe. This explains the hearty dishes, often with a strong emphasis on potatoes and meat. During winter, Germans consume many calories and foods that are highly nutritious, just as Sauerkraut is. Also, German Cuisine is highly popular all around the world, including South Africa

Introduction To German Baking:

German baking recipes are quite different than other parts of the world, especially when compared to North America. Germans will not use volume when highlighting quantities. They will use weight. While exceptions do exist, you will usually notice something like 250 grams of flour instead of 2 cups. Read more about German Baking here!

An Introduction to German Sausages

There are hundreds of different types of sausage in Germany.  Some are found in delicatessens, others in restaurants and street food stands, whilst some sausages are unique family recipes. Here is a short guide to some of the more popular wursts in Germany. Read more here!
