East meets West as home chef Ananya Banerjee hosts a German food pop-up to celebrate Oktoberfest. Here’s what to expect
Home-cooked German food? The idea itself got us all excited and we were curious to savour the goodies when the delivery arrived at our office. The first box contained Brat Wurst, grilled pork sausages made from scratch. Quite different from the variety offered at cold storages, these were succulent and mildly flavoured.
The Frikadelen (meatballs) was an instant hit
The second dish we tried was Frikadelen, mutton meatballs in German. These were melt-in-the-mouth variety. The Kartofeln Salad, essentially a potato salad, was nothing special but complimented the meat nicely. The Chicken Schnitzels (cutlets) were crisp on the outside and tender within; these disappeared before we could return to the table for a second helping. The Eintoph (slow cooked meat stew) with Krauter brot (herbed bread, more like garlic bread) earned rave reviews too.
Brat Wurst (Pork Sausages)
Banerjee’s menu will include Reibe Khuchen Potato and Butter Kuchen (butter cake with custard sauce). So if you can’t board
