Our recipe adventure starts in Germany…a land of beer, Bratwurst, and bread. Although Germany is not necessarily known as a culinary capital beyond sausages and kuchen, you might be surprised to learn just how important the potato is to the everyday German diet. As a truly ‘meat and potatoes’ culture, potatoes form an important part in German cuisine as much as any other Oktoberfest staple, providing many inspiring recipes known the world over.
Likely the most popular potato dish in Germany is a classic potato salad. Although not too different from the North American equivalent, minus the mayonnaise, a good potato salad is a staple year round in Germany and can compliment the juiciest Bratwurst and smoothest beer superbly.

Although not hard to make, a good potato salad is essential and can make or break any summer picnic or Thanksgiving dinner. What makes this recipe sehr gut is the inclusion of some hearty speck (bacon), making it a truly ‘meat and potatoes’ dish that will not be forgotten. Our suggestion is to pair it with a hearty German meal consisting of an authentic pilsner or sect and maybe some traditional sausages or pork tenderloin. A good sauerkraut always goes wells with anything too, ja? Geanau!
