Munich Oktoberfest 2018 Food and Beer

This speciality is served in all the big festival tents. There is actually not much room for experimenting, because the guests want the roast pork exactly like it’s done in Bavaria: with potato dumplings, sauerkraut and, of course, a lot of gravy.

Roast Pork for Connoiseurs and Epicures

The only exception that one can recommend with a clear conscience is exchanging the potato dumplings for bread dumplings. Many locals go on an excursion to the festival field on the Wiesn Sundays to eat roast pork with their families.

The Bavarian traditions can be enjoyed in special style at lunch time, accompanied by regional brass music in the beer tents. Whether the meat is served with crackling or without is left to the cook’s preferences.

Delicious Messy Fun Food in Frankfurt Germany: Steak and Meats

The food in Frankfurt is varied, delicious and most importantly, interesting. But you definitely need some recommendations to come to a city like Frankfurt and without some good ones, you may struggle to know where to go. Reason being: Frankfurt is small but the hotspots are spread out, which means there’s not ‘one area’ to visit. If you are a connoisseur of good food, you want to enjoy different German styles.

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup

Make sure to make it messy…it tastes better!

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup 9

INGREDIENTS

  • large yellow onions, sliced thinly
  • cup heavy cream
  • tablespoons unsalted butter
  • teaspoon salt
  • cups dry white wine
  • quarts chicken stock
  • ounces Gruyere cheese, grated (a Cheddar would work, too)
  • slices of hole-y, country bread

Messy Fun Food of the Day: French Onion Soup 10

COOKING METHOD

  1. In a large, wide-bottomed pot, combine the onions, cream, butter, and salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium to medium-high heat until the onions soften and the cream reduces to its solids. This should take anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes, depending on your onions and your pot. Then turn the heat up slightly, so the onions and cream bubble at a slow boil, and cook without stirring for about six or seven minutes, until the onions on the bottom are deeply brown. (Depending on your stove, this might mean at medium heat or at high. Don’t go overboard: you don’t want the onions blackened.) Stir the onions and add a half-cup of wine and deglaze the pan, scraping up all the burnt and browned bits. Then repeat the process: leave the onions without stirring for another six minutes or so, then deglaze. Repeat until you have used all 2 cups of wine. The onions should now be a rich, dark brown color; they should smell divine.
  2. Add the stock. (Use less if you want more of a stew.) Bring to a simmer and cook for about 15 minutes. Season with salt if needed.
  3. Preheat the oven to 400. Toast the bread until it is dry and crusty, about 15 minutes. Ladle the soup into either ovenproof bowls or a single large baking dish (if the latter, place it on a baking sheet: it will spill). Fill the bowls or dish to nearly the rim. Float the bread on the soup and sprinkle with the Gruyere. Bake until the cheese is bubbly and browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Let cool until it will no longer burn your tongue. Devour!

Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water

 Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water 12

For every 1 quart of water, add 4 tea bags or 1 tablespoon (8-10g) of loose leaf tea. Combine the water and tea into a resealable container and place in the fridge, steeping only for 5 hours for the best flavor. After 5 hours, remove the tea bags or strain.

If you want to sweeten your cold-brewed tea, make a simple syrup. This will allow the sugar to sweeten the tea rather than just collecting on the bottom of your cup.

Preparing Iced Tea without Boiling Water 14

Simple syrup: combine equal parts sugar and water (e.g. 1 cup water to 1 cup of sugar; yields about 1.5 cups of simple syrup) in a sauce pan, and heat on the stove until the sugar has dissolved completely. Let it cool, then add to taste to your tea. You can also get creative and add flavoring to the simple syrup by adding fresh herbs or other ingredients after the sugar has dissolved and you’ve removed the syrup from the stove. For example, you could add mint, rosemary, ginger, vanilla, or citrus peel. Let the extra ingredients steep in the syrup while the syrup cools, then remove (leaving in the flavoring ingredients will shorten the shelf life of the syrup).

Steaks come in all shapes and sizes and depending on the section of the cow they originate from can have a huge influence on price and cooking technique. According to Jimmy, “You may want to choose a cut like Flat Iron or Flank Steak if you are serving a larger group.

Consider buying a thicker, multiple serving premium steak such as a Porterhouse or Bone-in Rib-Eye. Return the sliced steak to the bone before serving. It is a very nice presentation for a small dinner party. Thicker boneless cuts such as New York Steak also make great multiple serving steaks.”

Making the” salsa. Scoop the tomatoes, chiles, cilantro, garlic and white onion into a bowl and mix well. Stir in the hot sauce, ketchup and optional lime juice. Taste and season with salt, usually about a scant teaspoon.

Making the shrimp filling. Heat a very large (12-inch), heavy skillet—nonstick works really well—over medium-high. Pour in 2 tablespoons of the oil and when it is hot, add the “salsa” vegetables. Cook, stirring regularly, until everything softens together, about 5 minutes. Scoop in the shrimp and stir until they are barely cooked through (they can still be slightly translucent at the center)—about 3 minutes. Scoop the shrimp mixture into a bowl, wash and dry the skillet, and return it to medium heat.

Assembling the encamaronadas. Heavily film the bottom of the skillet with oil. When hot, lay in a tortilla. After a few seconds, flip it, then scatter a couple of tablespoons of shredded cheese over one side, top with a generous tablespoon of the filling. Use tongs to fold the uncovered part of the tortilla over the filling, forming a turnover. Gently press flat. Continue to make encamaronadas in the same fashion until the skillet is full, frying them until crisp—2 to 3 minutes per side. As they become crisp, remove them to a plate lined with paper towels. Serve right away with more Mexican hot sauce.

Strawberry Fiesta Messy Delicious Food It is Time for a Summer Party

My strawberries are thriving. They love the weather we are having in my neck of the woods and they ripe fast, so I am having tons of them everyday. It’s so much fun! This year I fertilized them naturally with leaves from my banana trees and other sustainable methods I have; maybe that’s why they are so happy.

I have so many that now I have to figure out a way to feed the family with them so no strawberry goes to waste. Well, my hens eat them when for some reason they go bad. Usually I eat them fresh right off the plant, in shakes, I make refreshing drinks, jam, popsicles, shortcake, and even salads.
