I love German food because there’s so much joy and lack of pretension surrounding it. How often do you hear of low-fat bratwurst or sauerkraut? Do you often see a German turning down a slice of apple strudel? Not too often, right? Germans are all about the food, imbuing their celebrations with traditional foods and desserts. German desserts are some of the best in the world because of the joy and the care put into making them. While some are quite time consuming, the result is well worth the wait. This week I’ve put together some great recipes from around the web to help you make your Christmas bright with a little German influence.
