The Palatinate region of Germany used to be under French rule, so the influence is noticeable in the local cuisine. Pork is widely consumed.
A bit of trivia – the most famous dish from this region is probably Saumagen – literally “sow’s stomach“. It’s a sausage-like dish made up of a mixture of pork, ham, onions, eggs and spices, stuffed and tied into a cleaned, saltwater-soaked pig stomach casing and slowly simmered. It is sliced and pan-fried before serving, the pig stomach crisping up nicely. Helmut Kohl (German chancellor 1982-1998) was from the Palatinate, and by serving his favorite Saumagen as a delicacy to many visiting dignitaries, he inadvertently placed it on the world cuisine map.
When: Wednesday, March 15th, starting at 9.30am till about 1.00pm thereabouts
Where: Birgit’s home in Neustadt (address will be provided to those attending)
What: No Saumagen this time! Instead, we will start by preparing Möhrensuppe (carrot soup), followed by Flääschknepp mit Meerrettichsoß (meatballs in horseradish sauce), and lunch will end with a “dream of apples”, Apfeltraum.
There is space for 6 participants. Online registration opens mid February.
