We know it’s September, but that’s half the fun of Oktoberfest. Those Germans are so überraschend or um, surprising.
- Bavarian-Style Sauerkraut — An Oktoberfest staple, this Bavarian-style sauerkraut is a Deutschland delicacy. Simmer with a cup of stock or water, pile onto your pork chops or knockwurst and enjoy!
- Rotessa Red Cabbage — A traditional red cabbage specialty from Hengstenberg's local cultivation and produced strictly without genetic engineering. This ready-to-eat red cabbage is finely spiced and goes well with both game and meat specialties.
- Red Cabbage with Apples — An Oktoberfest essential, this traditional German red cabbage is a perfect complement to sauerbraten. Serve hot or cold!
Mestemacher Authenic, Organic German Breads Originally founded as a small village bakery in 1871, Mestemacher is known for its long shelf life sans preservatives. Pioneers in organic cultivation, they take great pride in actively promoting ecology and protecting nature, while milling and baking these essential German loaves! Can you say Reuben? Available in Pumpernickel, Whole Rye, Three Grain & Sunflower Seed.
Gerolsteiner — Like wine, mineral water is completely unique to the specific environment from which it comes. The waters drawn from the calcium and magnesium-rich volcanic limestone of the Eifel region of Western Germany have been admired for their exceptional purity and quality since ancient times. This is where Gerolsteiner sources their mineral water, and what accounts for its clean, balanced flavor, and refreshing effervescence. Available in Sparkling Apple, too!
Lowensenf Extra Hot Mustard — A true specialty from the city of Duesseldorf at the Rhine River, this hot to very hot mustard resembles Dijon mustard but has a distinctly German taste profile. Made from a combination of brown mustard seeds, vinegar, and spices, it boasts a smooth texture and sharp taste. A German classic with franks, sausages, and other meats.
Bechtle Egg Noodles — These traditional German egg noodles are made with raw ingredients and fresh eggs from cage-free chickens. Available in Broad & Spaetzle!
Classic Coupling: Gluten-Free Waffles & Goat’s Milk Cream Cheese — O.M.G.
At the suggestion of Stacie Skinner, founder of Lopaus Point Gluten-Free Waffles, we paired these amazing handcrafted waffles with cream cheese! But, not just ANY cream cheese, Bell Chèvre Cream Cheese made from goat’s milk — an original of founder Tasia Malakasis. You can’t even imagine. The chewy, crisp texture and slight sweetness of the waffles coupled with the melty, tangy flavor of goat’s milk cream cheese leaves maple syrup in the dust, or at least in the cruet. So simple. So sublime. So very our top pick for a cool fall morning! The waffles are available in Banana Flax, Wild Blueberry, Chocolate Chip and Pumpkin Spice, and the Cream Chèvres in Original, Fig & Honey. Mix and Match. Heaven happens.
