Heute in der Küche mit Hans Peter…!!

Hallo meine Mimi Freunde…..this is Hans Peter reporting from the sleepy Italienisch village of Breganze. Today’s dish of the day is the old German institutional platter of Wurst mit Sauerkraut, the very foundation of the German Küche…..

Cooking Tips……Plenty of vinegar in the Sauerkraut, it should make your eyes water and your nose run like Rennzeiten on heat…!!

Take care not to over boil the Wurst and always keep the water after, it makes a great cure for Halsschmerzen…!!

Viel Spaß in der Küche…!!
