Oktoberfest die Zweite (part 2) October 2, 2008

Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Uncategorized.

I attended a German Oktoberfest cooking class last night at Viking Cooking School. It was a hands-on cooking class, and we made soft pretzels (enjoyed with a spicy Obatzda cheese spread) , wild mushroom and spinach strudel (which was AMAZING – phyllo dough isn’t as difficult to work with as I thought…), grilled bratwursts with caramelized onions, and Black Forest cupcakes. After we finished cooking we enjoyed the fruits of our labor with a nice glass of wine. I’m still full this morning!

It seems the Americans are embracing the Oktoberfest more and more every year. In addition to numerous local Oktoberfests, there are features in the cooking sections of magazines and newspapers and lots of other cultural references to the big beer fest.
