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?
Another famed dish from German Cuisine is Leberkäse (aka Liver Cheese), which is a kinda Porky, kinda Meaty, kinda Meatloaf. (Don’t forget to order through your Menulog app – which is kind useful.) Leberkäse is often served as a snack during the day – a nibble, rather than a nosh-up. It’s best served sliced, with fresh White Bread and a side dish of Sweet Mustard. A Schnitzel is another winner, winner, German-Schnitzel dinner. It’s a thin, lean piece of meat coated with a mix of Flour, Beaten Eggs and then, of course, rolled in Breadcrumbs. A German Schnitzel uses Pork and is usually served with either French Fries or Mashed Spuds or Potato Wedges or a nice healthy(ish) Potato Salad. Oh, and a slice of lemon. Order a Wiener Schnitzel – the most famous variety – and, instead of pork, you’ll get a thinly-sliced tender piece of Veal. (Order a Menulog delivery bike, for either.)
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.
