40.6 deutschland

  1. 1. Think Deutschland (or Germany to the rest of the world) and people’s thoughts go in many directions depending on what they are predominantly interested in. For instance: when it comes to cars one immediately thinks of Mercedes-Benz, BMW and Audi (and a lot more); travel and tourism leads one to dream of going to visit the Berlin Wall and countless other natural and manmade attractions outside the capital including Frankfurt, Munich, Hamburg and a lot more. Fashion and one thinks of the flamboyant designer Karl Lagerfeld, apparel brand Hugo Boss and supermodels Heidi Klum, Claudia Schiffer and Gisele Bündchen. And of course there’s food glorious food which Germany has countless contributions in its every aspect from historical times to the modern day age. Being an enormous country with ideal soil and climate, agriculture plays a significant contribution to its output apart from its many exports and imports. Due to its proximity and border contact to several other European nations, the cuisine of German varies from region to region. Bavaria, for instance, down south has several similarities with the food culture of Switzerland and Austria. One cannot discuss the food and drink of Germany without mentioning sausages and beer, the former of which is consumed in countless forms in all of the country’s different regions. The national alcoholic beverage is beer vastly consumed by the population in pretty much all dining occasions. Octoberfest is Germany’s most famous event and one of the world’s largest fairs celebrated late September for over two weeks. It originated in Munich where millions of Germans and tourists gather for endless nights of merriment consuming unbelievable quantities of beer together with other traditional foods (mostly meats, cheese, sauerkraut, bread and potatoes. Tourists scramble to try as many varieties of sausages (wurst) as they can but don’t come close to sampling the 1,500 kinds made in the country. Some are made from the usual spiced ground meat to the more exotic varieties using pig or goat blood, stuffed in animal intestine casings. A widely carnivorous country, Germans truly enjoy their beef, pork and poultry including game meats like boar, rabbit and venison cooked in a variety of ways some becoming national specialties like sauerbraten, a marinated beef or venison roast using vinegar.
  2. 2. Fish and vegetables are also widely consumed throughout Germany depending on the region where they are grown or caught. Noodles, dumplings and various condiments like mustard and horseradish complete a typical meal. Being a country that takes food seriously, the Michelin guide has recognized its passion for fine fining and awarded quite a number of German restaurants its highest recognition of three stars.
