Well, Sauerkraut is known to be the German food. We celebrate German Week, the „Krauts“ in Australia! And we are going to prepare for a night of food at the magnificent Lumiere Culinary Studio in the company of Miele Appliances. But not only Sauerkraut 😉
While we (contestants and judges) attend the cooking show and (due to Covid) you can join via our live stream (link on top) – thanks Carlos from H2H Studios! Yes you can cook with us in real time!
On 6 Oct 6pm you were able to join us for the inaugural German Week cooking comp! You had to anticipate about an hour, required ingredients have been published below. We have added a few funny extras to irritate you – as yet the recipe had not been revealed! The 4 contesting teams of two (also below) were shown the recipes of one typical German main and one typical German dessert dish a few moments before the show starts. Upon your engagement you had the chance to win fabulous, super valuable items thanks to Miele Australia and Lumiere Brisbane…..!
Winners have been contacted the next day – CONGRATULATIONS and thanks a lot for your entertaining engagement!!!
Special thanks to Lesley, Vincent, Sandra, Louise, Tina, Katharina – while not all could win – the engagement was fabulously funny!

Did you know?! Sauerkraut Fun Facts:
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!)
