Date(s) - 09/06/2018
18:00 - 22:30


Our second “Cook-and-Dine” session takes us to Edenkoben in region of Rhineland-Palatinate.  This  region used to be under French rule, so the influence is noticeable in the local cuisine.

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:  Saturday, June 9th, starting at 18.00am till about 22.30pm thereabouts

Where:  Meike’s home in Edenkoben (address will be provided to those attending)

What:  In addition to Saumagen (in small amounts), we will also be preparing a medley of dishes based on what’s in-season at the local farmer’s market.  The dishes will not be typical Palatinate – our hosts will present their own interpretations incorporating flavors acquired during their travels abroad.

The Rhineland-Palatinate is the largest wine-producing region in Germany, so we have the added challenge of pairing our menu with local wines.

There is space for 10 participants, online registration opens  early May.  Once you have registered, make sure to let us know if you have any special dietary requests so that we may adjust the menu accordingly.

Come join us and taste the Palatinate like you have never done!
