German Food.

Thats a very good point Vic.

Ive never been off the normal tourit paths in my german visits. Where I live, in Brighton, its pretty impossible to get decent food along our sea front too. Its all over priced touristy rubbish.

However, go 5 mins walk back from the main touristy parts, and there is plenty of decent, well priced food available.

You just have to know where to go really. Also, as you say, English food is far better than it is considered overseas, but I think these opinions areso well set now that it will never change, which is a shame.

Marc and I def intend to go back to Germany, he was born in Munich, but we must make more of an effort food wise.

Chazza & German food

Haven't been to Germany since student days. Loved the bread and beer. My German friends were always off to eat potato salad and pork chops at 2.0am; couldn't cope with it now but loved it all then. Bavaria is my favourite part of Germany.

German Food

Hi Vic - "Did you try sushi and a nice little Cafe for lunch and an italian in the evening?"

Yes, one day we did exactly that, had Sushi at lunch time, walked it off, had coffee and cake in a caf&"
233;, walked that off then spent the evening in a superb Italian that I always go to at least once whenever visiting.

Were you with us that day?

Prawns in aspic

Thank you Gerry! It looks like a lot of work, but it isn't really, there are just a lot of stages.

Chazza, would it be OK with brown shrimps, as I have a stack in the freezer and need freezer space? Thanks! BTW I enjoy a project.

Shrimps in Aspic

I can't think of any reason why not - it'll probably taste even better. I wish I had your freezer problem.

I thought about using any shells to make a stronger stock (not really necessary anyway) but apparently seafood gelatine melts at a much lower temperature so the whole dish would melt very quickly.

Make sure your aspic sets really well before using it, and make sure each layer sets well before moving on.

FYI, aspic should still be completely liquid at 40°C (for seafood gelatin it's 15°C).

Let us know how it goes. Good luck!

German nosh

Can't believe I didn't find this thread earlier - it's got me really excited!
I am going to Germany next week, 2 nights near Nurnburg so v v happy to hear they do the best sausages, 2 nights in Speyer to go to the techniks museum and 2 in Rudesheim which I chose quite randomly, had never heard of it so v v surprised to see it getting mention here by Chazza - did I make a good choice?!
I haven't been to Germany since school exchanges, have never eaten in a German restaurant so v much looking fwd to it.
My (6yo) son likes sausages and pickled food and bread so am hoping he's going to be well fed.
Thanks for the excitement!

Im dead scared!!!!

Marc is on business in Munich till Thursday and I cannot sleep on my own in the house!!!!!

TO be honest though, due to his upbringing, he is looking forward to a bit of german food, even though he will have very little free time whilst there.

"Can't believe I didn't find this thread earlier - it's got me really excited!

Hello everyone, I was away working, and yesterday feeding the family, (steak and kiddly pie, vegan curries for the vegetarians). Back for a few days now.

FWx, I've visited Speyer's sister museum in Sinsheim and that was totally astonishing, for instance they have a whole real Concorde on the roof, and also the Russian "Concorde" next to it (a Tupelov 144) - did anyone know there was a Russian Concorde? - also things like 6 wheel Rolls Royces, one of the best museum visits I have ever experienced. Hope your trip is just as good! Sadly the food was totally tourist fare, the only downside.

R&"252;desheim? I can hardly think of where to start - except to say that if you don't like fresh air and fantasy castles and river trips and mountain lift rides and fab restaurants and wines and beers you'd better stay in the UK :-)

Maybe your son is used to very meaty sausages so he'll be OK with the German varieties, but if he usually eats proper sausages like Richmond brand he may find them a bit unusual. But having fed a 6 year old yesterday, I can't believe he'll starve! A safe and convenient youth option would be a Schnitzel. And Bratkartoffel - panfried (or roasted) potatoes with onion and bacon pieces. Yum.
