Those who know me, probably also know I'm 2nd generation German - so why would [ profile] make_your_move want to take a cooking class on German food? Because there was some new stuff I had done before :) Here is the menu for today:

Salatsauce (salad dressing)
Rouladen (stuffed, rolled beef)
Grüner Spargelsalat mit Kraütersauce (Asparagus w/ Herb Sauce)
Rodkraut/Rodkohl (Red Cabbage)
Sauerbraten (marinated beef)
Kartoffelklöße (Potato Dumplings)
German Apple Pudding cake
German Chocolate Cake

I've never actually made pretzels from scratch, so I asked the chef early if I could work on those. I had to wait a long time for them to rise (probably not that long, but it felt like it) I was a little nervous about dumping them in the water bath before baking them, but all was well. They came out yummy, but needed more salt.

I made the Shnitzel sauce (mushroom and cream sauce), I had a hand in the potato dumplings. And I made the apple pudding cake which was delightful and easy to make. Then we ate, and now I'm stuffed

I can't remember the last time I had a great schnitzel and spaetzle! Good for you, trying something new!

I have recently been experimenting with my schnitzel recipe and loving it. Baltimore had a large German prescience and several good restaurants. Most have closed and so my source of German food has dried up.

Are you offering any recipes?

For your friend red hot lips, not knowing your area, there is a well regarded German restaurant in Hagerstown and south of Annapolis.

ah German food ... I remember falling in love with red cabbage at an early age, then re-falling in love with it while in Germany

if you're ever in downtown DC and have a hankering for authentic German cuisine: Cafe Mozart ... on New York Avenue near the Treasury building ... they have a shop and deli in front with all sorts of goodies, then you have to walk through to the back to get to the small restaurant part ... double thumbs up for this place
