German cuisine as you’ve never seen it before…

Nobody works harder than ex-pats to keep their national traditions alive. At least, that’s what I always thought, based on observed ex-pat rituals. So it was no surprise to find out that second and third generation German-emigrees are sometimes more German than the Germans… and cherish customers, rituals and recipes which no German would actually recognise.

I discovered this touching clip on Youtube – note the very German hat (you know how Germans make their children wear hats with odd tassles and pom-poms).

For anyone who was confused by that clip – a quick reminder of what real German cuisine is all about.

  1. Charisma

    OMG! I love t the second video. AWESOME!!!

  2. Oh that is so funny! Thanks for making me laugh this early in my day!!!

  3. Ah, the second clip is disturbing on so many levels. Is this the Austrians sending up their German neighbours for being too Prussian?

    If it’s the Germans sending themselves up…oh, dear. They should leave mockery in the hands of experts. Like the cast of Hogan’s Heroes.

    P.S. Just read Planet Germany, the book. How true, every word!

  4. Ah, how that brings back days of spam-and-peanut butter sandwiches on the banks of the Neckar…
