"We Germans" love light, mediterranean food. And the American in me loves to spice it all up with hot sauce and home-grown green chilis and throw in some corn on the cob. Here an impression from a recent family meal at home:
But seriously: we are experiencing quite a trend toward light Italian food here in Germany. Hardly a wedding, where we don't serve a big spread of antipasti and also Italian dishes on the entrée side of things. I am personally a big fan of eating locally, whenever I travel. But having spent the past 11 years here in rural Germany, not having had much opportunity to travel (except to Hungary), we have to improvise and bring the foods of the world back into the house.
