Well! Sauerkraut is known to be the German food. The „Krauts“ in Australia celebrate German Week! And we have prepared for a delightful night of food at the Miele Experience Centre in Newstead. But there was not only Sauerkraut 😉
This year the difficulty level will be increased after Oktoberfest Brisbane won the title of Spätzle-Master last year! There will be two dishes that were traditionally cooked in former East Germany. Two teams will be cooking, German students will be judging, and challenges will be entertaining! Only a very limited number of guests will be able to see the show live and everyone else will be able to join in the live stream like last year (which had a reach of 4000 impressions, 170 comments voting for their favourite team!).

FAKE INGREDIENTS LIST – PRE-PUBLISHED:
Achtung – they were designed to irritate you as to not reveal the recipe. However, if you had these things at home, you were all set!
In Germany, the average per capita consumption of sauerkraut is approximately 2.6 pounds, down from 4.4 pounds 40 years ago.
In WWI and WWII, the slang word “kraut” was used to refer to sailors and ultimately all German soldiers because of the long history of German ships being outfitted with Sauerkraut as part of daily food rations to prevent scurvy.
In the 18th century, explorers like Captain Cook used sauerkraut to prevent scurvy during long sea voyages, bringing as much as 25,000 pounds of the Vitamin-C rich ferment along on voyages.
The Germans gave sauerkraut its popular name but the Germans did not invent sauerkraut. (The ancient Chinese did while building the Great Wall of China!)
