Discover local German gems
German food has always been popular in Australia, ever since German immigrants first arrived bringing their delicious recipes and cooking traditions. As with many foreign cuisines, the Germans modified their traditional fare, using ingredients available in Australia in an effort to bring a taste from home. The first German immigrants settled in the Barossa Valley, South Australia, and got to work making sausages! Some of these specialities included: Leberwurst, Mettwurst, Weisswurst and above all, Bratwurst. They also preserved produce by pickling, smoking, drying, or salting with methods brought from their homeland. Did you know the German settlers also established vineyards in Australia? And let’s not forget about all the delectable German baked goods ‒ who doesn't like a Strudel?
German Sausage (aka The Wurst)
You can’t talk for long about German Cuisine without mentioning the indomitable German Sausage (aka The Wurst). And you can’t talk for long about food apps, without mentioning the Menulog app (aka The Best). Of course, there’s so much more to German Cuisine than sausages – even there are more than 1,500 variants of Wurst. As well as the famed Bratwurst, Frankfurter & Currywurst, you should also tast the delights of the Great White German Sausage, aka Weisswurst. (Not to be confused with the great, white whale – though both are a real mouthful.) Bavaria is the homeland of Weisswurst, where locals only scoff them before midday. (But, hey, who’s watching?). Ideally, a Weisswurst is best served with a Salty Pretzel (aka Brezel) and a blob of Sweet Mustard to dip said sausage in. For the full experience, add a cool German beer. Oh and a Menulog delivery bike.
Kartoffelpuffer Mit Apfelmus
Kartoffelpuffer Mit Apfelmus (aka Potato Pancakes with Apple Sauce) is an incredibly simple, but super tasty dish perfectly encapsulates the non-frills Teutonic approach to German Cuisine. (And speaking of incredibly simple, don’t your Just Eat app – to put the ‘app’ in your Apple Sauce.) KMA consists, quite simply, of grated Potato Pancakes & Apple Sauce. The spuds are bound together into yummy little patties with an egg & flour mix, then seasoned, then fried. Splosh on the Apple Sauce – and voila (as the Germans don’t say). Another simple, seasonal fave is Spargel mit Butter (aka White Asparagus). The fave culinary equation here is: boiled asparagus + boiled potatoes + breaded pork + Hollandaise sauce = food happiness. In late Spring every year, little wooden huts pop up all over the German countryside offering bag of these pale delights. (All you need is a Menulog delivery bike.)
