How can you go wrong with a meal starting with German beer and assorted sausages and ending with Black Forest gateau, apple strudel and vanilla/lemon cream? Janice Kabel and Susan Orr hosted a German luncheon in Janice’s welcoming home and provided some first-hand history of German cuisine. Janice’s husband is German and some of the recipes utilized for the luncheon were traditional family recipes. We were all amazed at the wide variety of ingredients and food styles ranging from light, vegetable salads to more traditional sauerbraten, rouladen, braised red cabbage and German potato salad. Recipes were discussed and shared and many will be used again. A cold glass of German Riesling wine or some of Janice’s custom-blended ginger/peach iced tea were the perfect additions to a wonderful meal. A huge thanks to Janice and Susan.
