History of the Food
Prehistoric Germany liked their food bland. The earliest spices were parsley, celery, and dill. The Romans introduced fruit trees & grape vines along with oats and rye. Once all of those came in to play the food became more sophisticated.
The story Hansel & Gretel influenced the style of cooking also King Fredrick the great introduced potatoes.
One of their favorite dishes is the Wurst. Its a whole bunch of meats put together into a sausage. They like the currywurst. Its exactly as it sounds its a wurst with curry sprinkled over the top.
Another favorite is the Eintopf. Its a soup they normally have in the winter. Its a mix of meat and vegitables. It started out just being a thing you make with your left overs.
