I am so proud to be part of this awesome community #wildasperagustable which allows me to try dishes from the kitchens all over the world. This time it was the turn of German cuisine. I  was completely ignorant of this cusisine I should admit, but  there are some great blogs on German food and lifestyles and the cuisine seemed exotic and unique in flavors. Though some of the dishes have similarity with Italian cuisine with a large number of homemade varieties of pasta, it is very unique and very bold. I decided to cook two types of pastas ,one is schufnudel , a potato pasta and another is maultaschen which is a traditional dumpling filled with minced meat and spinach.

In this blog I  will share my recipe of maultaschen which is raditionally prepared with minced beef and bacon . I used minced lamb meat instead as I dont consume beef. The recipe calls for usage of many herbs like marjoram, celery and parseley with a bit of grated nutmeg. I followed this awesome recipe vlog “Little gasthaus”   meaning Guest house in English. The recipe is a spicy variation of the dish shown in the vlog with spicy thai bird chiles added to the filling.

The event was hosted by the restobar Gymkhana 91 which looked like perfect place for hosting a food event for such age old classic cuisine. The decor of the restaurant is rustic and royal with wooden floors and stairs and the light seemed just perfect for photoshoots. It was spacious airy and place was big enough for all our members to play around with the camera , chit chat and have fun. It also had this huge dining table which allowed us to enjoy decious community brunch together and discuss about the nitty gritties of food.

Our drinking sponsors were “Fullers London pride” beer and  Russian Rye Vodka ( rye bread spirit as an unique ingredient of the vodka).The water bottles for the members were sponsored by Blue pine water which was naturally alkaline and packed in cute glass bottles.

The community and the theme is the brain child of Saloni  Malkani, the co-founder of FBAI and chef Ananya , a cookbook author ,an youtuber and a celebrity chef.
