Into the Doorway of Food, where it's all about Eating...

Let's start the journey into my world of food...

Different tastebuds with different tongues; you're the eater and you're the judge...
What I share here is simply the passion towards food and drinks.

What Can You Do during the Winter of Christmas?

I've never celebrated Christmas in the cold Winter, under the ambient with the temperature that is lower than 5°C. Merry Christmas or "Frohe Weichnachsten" and we've decided to visit Germany in December 2014. It's not common to see white snow during the Christmas in Regensburg yet the low temperature is sufficient for me to enjoy some activities at the Christkindlmarkt.

Christkindlmarkt is a special scene that is available only before Christmas time in Europe. There's plenty of huts whereby people are selling the hot drinks, the sausages and also some decorations here. My favourite things to do are to drink a mug of hot wine or the Glühwein and also to eat a bread with sausage or the Wurst Semmel. Glühwein is the wine that is cooked with cloves, cinnamon and tea whereby it's meant to be served warm during the cold weather. You can try out the red that is made of grape or the white that is made of apple. The Glühwein is slightly harsh in the taste due to its alcoholic content that you can opt for the Kinderpunsch if you prefer the sweeter taste and it's without alcohol. I'm very happy as I've tried out the 1/2 metre Putenwurst Semmel or the Turkey Sausage. It's very juicy and tender whereby the saltiness goes well with the mixture of sweet and spicy senf.

Besides that, it's a must to try out the Christmas Stollen. It's a tradition for Christmas in Europe whereby it's actually alike the bread that is filled with raisins and dried fruit. Attila's favourite is the Edelmarzipan for its sweetness. I've tried it for the 1st time and I'm crazing about it completely. It's such a delicious dessert and not to forget the various Christmas Cookies as well.

Christmas is a reunion time for the family. Everyone gathers for a dinner together while the presents are placed under the Christmas Tree, to be unwrapped only after the meal. In the tradition of Molnar's family, we're eating Sauerkrautwickel or the cabbage roll that contains minced meat and being boiled together with the Sauertkraut or the sour white cabbage. My favourite dish by the Mom and I love it!

On the 26-Dec-14, the snow has finally landed at where we're staying... It's a beautiful scenery, isn't it?
