Gourmet cuisine in Germany

Germany is well worth a visit - particularly for its cuisine! Because we Germans don't just like eating, we also love to cook:
This is evidenced by the gourmet honours awarded for the very highest levels of creativity and quality to some 200 restaurants in Germany. Top German wines like riesling, silvaner, rivaner and pinot noir create the ultimate taste sensation.

In addition to the outstanding traditional fare that can be enjoyed in its regions, Germany's haute cuisine is also winning admirers from home and abroad in ever greater numbers, and for good reason too: a meal in one of Germany's gourmet restaurants is a feast for the senses that will linger in the memory long after the last morsel has been consumed.

Passion and zest for life - that's what Germany's top chefs would like to share with you every single day. The creative dishes - often imaginatively interpreted classics with regional and national influences - are presented like works of art with all their aromas and textures.

The surroundings are also out of the ordinary, from exceptional modern architecture in the cities and regal splendour in castles and palaces all the way to traditional, elegant hospitality in small towns and villages. The attention to detail, combined with warm and personal service and the perfect balance of attention and discretion, help to make the gourmet experience a very special one.

And the countryside in which the restaurants are set is more than a picturesque backdrop: it also provides a wealth of quality produce for the creations of the master chefs.

Top German wines are produced in 13 wine-growing regions and enjoy great renown around the world.

The recipes will give you a taste of what to expect in Germany. Contributed by leading chefs, the dishes represent an introduction to the richly varied world of German gourmet cuisine.

Enjoy the finest food and fine wines - enjoy "Destination Germany"!
