Hessische Bergstrasse

German wine region

The wine-growing region Hessische Bergstraße is located north of Heidelberg,
bordered by the Rhine on the west and the Odenwald
(forest) on the east. The wines tend to be fragrant and
rich, with more body and a littie less acidity and finesse
than those of the Rheingau.

Wines: fragrant, refreshing fruity acidity, hearty.

The Riesling is the mainWein, Feste und Natur an der Hess. Bergstraße
grape variety, followed by the fragrant MüllerThurgau
and delicate Silvaner. The wines from the Bergstrasse are scarce and almost without exception consumed locally - a good reason to attend one of the local wine festivals in
the medieval town of Heppenheim (late june) or Bensheim
(early September).

Hungarian Goulash


one of Rudi's Favorites:

Beef tips, simmered in a spicy paprika sauce, with spaetzle or noodles

Goulash is a spicy dish, originally from Hungary. Its name comes from Hungarian gulyás,

the word for a herdsman.

Meat is cut into chunks, seasoned with salt, pepper and paprika, and thenbrowned in a pot with oil. Shank, shin or shoulder is used — goulash derives its thickness from tough, well-exercised muscles rich in collagen , which is converted to gelatin during the cooking process. Sliced onions, hot red peppers and garlic are added. After the meat is browned, stock is added and the stew is left to simmer for several hours to thicken (Wikipedia). recipe
