German Fair food

Our Renaissance Fest. is opening a new Beer Garden this season and I plan on serving light German favorites like brauts&kraut ,pretzels, mustard pickles etc.And of course beer. Does anyone have any other favorites they would recommend? Grilled items will work best and side dishes. Thanks.

How about turkey legs / meat with gravy? OR creamy schnitzel? I made something like this 3 weeks ago and it was GREAT!!!!!

Creamy Schnitzel


Ingredients:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
400g/13oz pork chops
20g / ½ oz shortening
pepper, salt
ground red pepper
50g / 1 ½ oz diced smoked ham
50g / 1 ½ oz cooked ham
1 onion
20g / ½ oz butter, unsalted
200g / 7 oz heavy cream
1 tsp instant broth
125g/4oz Rice

Serves 3 - 784 cal per serving
Prep-time: 15 min. - Total-time: 60 min.
. Set the oven temperature to 170° C / 340° F. Heat the shortening in a pan and first fry the schnitzels on high heat on both sides, then turn back the temperature and continue to fry for about 5 minutes. Season with pepper, salt and ground red pepper. Place the schnitzels in a casserole. Heat butter in a small pan and fry the diced smoked ham and cooked ham. Spread this mixture over the schnitzels. Season the cream with the instant broth and pour over the schnitzels. Bake in a moderate oven for about 60 minutes or until the meat is done. Serve with rice and a mixed salad.

I'll try to think of more.

We attend Milwaukee, Wisconsin's German Fest yearly and they serve grilled chicken, potato pancakes with applesauce, fresh and smoked brats, German potato salad as well as many other foods.

We need to get together one day for lunch. I work up your way. I'll bring you a sample jar of our mustard relish. It would be dyamite on those brats.

German Chicken and Dumplings rock. My wife makes these really heavy ones that are a meal in themselves. We fight over them.

Please, please, don't go the way of other "Renaissance" festivals by serving modern food with "Ye Olde" names. There are plenty of yummy treats which are appropriate to the time and place.

OK, maybe I have an axe to grind. Once upon a time, I was at the Renaissance Pleasure Faire in Agoura, California, a paying customer in a pretty good costume. I was approached by two women in better costumes who had a lot of unsolicited criticism of the shape of my hat and the trim on my skirt. All this in front of the Beef Teriyaki on a Stick and Churros stands. Well, so much for the veracity of the Authenticity Police!

Here is a German cookbook from the year 1533, translated into English. Use goodies from here!
