Berlin Recipes

In Berlin, cooking is traditionally simple and down-to-earth, and the dishes taste hearty. Typical agricultural ingredients are processed, such as potatoes, carrots, beans, turnips, lentils or peas. Beyond Berlin, traditional dishes such as meatballs and Berlin liver with apple rings, onions and mashed potatoes or sauerkraut with pea puree are particularly well known. Pork meat such as the knuckle of pork is often served with it. The Hoppelpoppel dish, for example, is a typical leftover meal prepared from the "poply" remains of roast meat, potatoes and eggs in a pan. A glass of beer, the so-called Molle, goes particularly well with the hearty meals. This is usually a light Pils from one of the Berlin breweries. If you order a Molle with stripper, you get a glass of grain with your beer. In the summer months the well-known light wheat beer is brewed, the so-called Berliner Weiße, which is also flavoured with a dash of raspberry syrup or Waldmeister syrup and tastes very refreshing when well chilled. Berliner Weiße with a shot is drunk from special glass cups. But also fine dishes are prepared, such as the light refreshing dessert Berliner Luft. For breakfast or dinner in Berlin you can buy the typical longish wheat rolls with a long notch, the ribs, or the dark angular rye rolls Berliner Schusterjungen.
