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?
