GLAM UP A Simple Dish
Traveling around Southern Germany from picturesque Christmas Market to market with friends, sampling stalls. It’s always a pleasure to have a glass of Gluwien with a Franconia Sausage.
There is a another culinary pleasure, the German staple, Sauerkraut. A simple cabbage dish served for dinner cooked with onions, caraway seeds, and soup stock cooked in water, basic. During a conversation around the stove, a change of recipe occurred. The result, inspiration meets holiday feelings.
Last night my cooking enthusiast hostess decided to “Glam Up” the traditional hot vegetable plate for us with a variation on a basic ingredient. She substituted Champagne in place of water. Cooked Sauerkraut with bubbly is a way to make a common meal more fun. Serve with sausages. Cheers!
Moet Chandon or any sparking wine.
