While I am away at the First Annual FoodBuzz Festival I am going to leave you with some pictures from my recent trip to Munich, Germany and a promise of tasty recipes to come!
Be warned, this is a photo heavy post. So where should I start?
This was my first meal in Munich – It is a crisp fried chicken breast with french fries!
This was my last meal there … The Augustiner Bräu Special – Roasted Chicken, Pigs Knuckle, and Roast Suckling Pig served with Cabbage Salad and a HUGE Potato Dumpling! The Pigs Knuckle changed my life. Really. Expect to see that one here as soon as I can source them! And, before you ask, that is a full liter of beer! Awesome!
This is a meat market in Viktualienmarkt, a large open air food market, just off the center square. There are a few shops in the surrounding buildings, like this one. The women inside who were making sausage were hearty and very Bavarian looking!
Then there are the desserts … and the breads … oh my!!
The Englischer Garten is one of the largest urban parks in the world, and is a peaceful place to spend a quiet morning. It is also a good place to walk off some of the pastry and bread … and pigs knuckles!
Everywhere you turn there is something going on. Here were two Chinese musicians playing just off Marienplatz, the center square in Munich. They were pretty brilliant, but the CD’s they were selling were very expensive.
Amazing, right? But there was so much more everywhere I looked.
It may be even more beautiful at night! This was my last look at Munich. It was a lovely way to say good bye!
