Kulturküche Cooking Classes - Frikadellen

Friday 18 November 2016 | 7:30 pm

Master the art of Frikadellen at the DANK Haus with this traditional German dish! Sometimes called "the German hamburger," savory and succulent Frikadellen are made of minced veal, pork, or beef (or a blend of two meats). Combined with onions, a binding agent and "secret seasonings," these giant meatballs are popular throughout Europe and are often served with boiled potatoes and gravy.

This informative and enjoyable class includes hands-on instruction, Chef Rita's delicious family recipe to take home, a drink from the bar, generous samplings, and of course, great camaraderie.
