Nick introduced Emily to German cuisine early in the relationship. He was born in Germany and is quite fond of the savory meats, salty sides, spicy mustards, and dark lagers of Bavaria. He makes a mean Wienerschnitzel and taught Emily to appreciate Rotkohl. (Though he hasn’t yet convinced her to try Rouladen.)
Next year we plan to visit Munich to celebrate the 200th anniversary of Oktoberfest, but this year we held our own mini celebration in our kitchen in central Pennsylvania. On Friday night we made our favorite German meal: Wienerschnitzel, Rotkohl, and spaetzle. Spaten Oktoberfest beer was served, too, of course.
