German cuisine differs from region to region. This is one of the main reasons we love it so much – because every part of Germany has its own recipes and stories behind them. Many of these recipes have become international and are cooked worldwide. As for what is specific for the whole country – people love meat! Mainly pork, but beef and chicken is also widely used. An average person in Germany will consume up to 61 kg of meat in a year. German people like to prepare their meat in the oven, not by deep-frying. Sauerbraten (Sour Roast) is a very popular and traditional way to prepare meat and it involves a marinade made with vinegar. Another specific way of preparing meat is making sausages which are very popular and common in Germany. As for fish, trout is mostly used, but you can also find carp, pike or European perch. Veggies are widely used in stews, soups, or as side dishes. Potatoes and noodles are most commonly used as side dishes. Now, desserts are very important in Germany and there are many traditional cakes and tarts served throughout the country. Cheesecakes, Red Velvet Cake, doughnuts, waffles, red fruit pudding and many more desserts are specific for Germany. So, today we are dedicating this post to German recipes. We tried to pick great recipes that are surely not the best out there but a good inspiration and a good way to try something from the German cuisine in your home.
