Unsere Lieblingsessen - Our Favorite Foods
Liebe TCGIS-Gemeinschaft,

Haben Sie Hunger? Are you hungry?

On Day 4 of our Woche der TCGIS Einheit/ Week of TCGIS Unity we're sharing with you some of our favorite foods from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, with nary a Bratwurst on our list (although many of us love them, too).

Did you know?
  • There are over 3200 officially recognized types of bread in Germany! (source)
  • Frühstück (breakfast) on weekends is legendary and has something for everyone.
  • The main meal of the day is Mittagessen (lunchtime).
  • Kaffee und Kuchen (coffee and cake) is a delicious afternoon tradition throughout the German-speaking countries.

This list includes recipes in both English and German; for German recipes a similar version in English is provided.

  1. Deutsches Frühstück** - a delectable feast to break your fast (English version)
  2. Schweizer Butterzopf - pure comfort made from flour and butter (English version)
  3. Frankfurter Grüne Sauce - delicious with Apfelwein or Apfelschorle!
  4. Currywurst mit Pommes - make this tasty Imbiss-snack at home
  5. Apfelstrudel - the one and only!
