I grew up eating delicious German food, cooked lovingly by my amazing Grandmother. This week, I’ll be highlighting some wonderful recipes from this wonderful part of the world.

The recipes will be coming from the Youtube channel

All Tastes German. 

This Youtube channel, and website, ” is dedicated to teach how to cook authentic, traditional and modern German recipes.” So, let’s get cooking! 😋


How could I have a week of German food, without Saurerbraten? It’s probably the most famous meat dish from this beautiful country. As stated in the video below, this recipe takes planning, as you marinade the meat for 5 – 10 days (thus the name – SAUERbraten) The videos come in two parts: marinade and cooking/gravy. Here’s the recipe:
