So though this a food site I wanted to break things up and still keep it somewhat food focused. I had the Idea of asking people in my life about food, interests, and other Sh*&. The first one I am calling “Germany,Beer, and Metal”…meet Marc Schmidt.
So this is Marc with his favorite German soccer team shirt on (I said Soccer because I know he calls it Football)…silly Europeans:) Also he is doing one of his favorite things Skiing.So ready to get schooled on some German food and beer…because as long as I have known Marc I was still impressed by this (all of the food descriptions are his).Wiener Schnitzel or Schnitzel “Wiener Art”, the first being the original, made from veal, breaded, fried and typically served with French fries or fried potatoes and salad. The second one is the less expensive alternative, with the only difference being that pork is used instead of veal.
Frankfurter Grüne Sosse (Frankfurt Green Sauce), a regional specialty served only in Frankfurt and surrounding areas, and during certain times of the year, when the herbs needed are in season. The original Grüne Sosse is made from parsley, cress, chives, borage, salad burnet, sorrel, chervil, sour cream, greek yoghurt, salt, pepper and lemon juice and is typically served over two half-cut boiled eggs or, optional, over boiled potatoes, or both..
Leberkäse(Veal loaf), there are too many different ways, this is served, to list here. My personal favorite is either fried, with a fried egg on top and mashed potatoes on the side, or just plain warmed up on a Brötchen (fresh bread roll). OK now on to Beer… Franziskaner Hefeweizen (Bavarian Wheat Beer) I do not defer to people much on food, wine,or beer…Marc is the exception to that rule on European beer.Warsteiner (German Lager)
DAB (German Lager)
OK now we have to talk Metal. I am a total Metal Head but Marc runs me for my money especially when it comes to the 80’s. These are his top 5 Bands…you can disagree but you have to respect. I am personally shocked no Scorpions?..come on German breed and born. I did limit him to five though.Favorite Metal bands
- Black Sabbath
So I was going to have Marc post a Bio as well but after working through the post I do not think it is needed. Marc was an ex-boss of mine and one of the finest people I have worked with. I do not throw praise around lightly but he deserves it…and he is a great guy to boot. Hopefully I can post some pics of us having some beer and food soon.
