GERMANY

Why Germany?

Germany has an incredibly rich and flavorful cuisine that has been evolving through centuries and differs from region to region. Interesting and diverse, we just couldn’t miss the chance to introduce you to it.

A few words about German cuisine

That one probably won’t come as a surprise, but Germans are huge meat lovers:

pork, beef, sheep, boar, hare, types of poultry, you name it! The most popular way to eat meat is sausage and, of course, there are not only many types of it for many occasions but also many regional specialties. However, that’s not all German cuisine has to offer: many fish recipes, vegetable stews and soups, dumplings, noodles and potatoes dishes, and a variety of sweet baked goods.
