Burbach’s European Pancakes
Traditional German Potato Pancakes are a vital part of every Christmas Market in Germany. Our authentic recipe originates from Braunschweig, Germany. You can watch Nick fry the Kartoffelpuffer as they are called in Germany on a flattop grill in oil until they achieve a deep brown crispy outer shell that gives way to an almost creamy interior. They are traditionally served with apple sauce but you can also enjoy them with sour cream. This year we are sourcing our apple sauce and cider from Pinetree Apple Orchard.
Our Schnitzel is a pounded pork cutlet which breaded and deep fried. You can enjoy it with a Jaegersauce (Hunter Mushroom Gravy) or fair style on a stick. To round it all up enjoy a warm Bavarian Pretzel from the Breadsmith!
