On a cool, gray day in April, Gaby Auth and I ventured to
Frankfurt in search of victuals for that night's dinner.
We had a tour of the Klein Markthalle, an impressive market with many varied
merchants and an exceptional array of foods. Now, many people in the U.S.
think German food is a rather limited range of items. But, in fact, you
can find exceptional foods on par with great markets in France or Italy in
Cheeses from everywhere. Matured properly, too.
Olives, beets, etc.
Prosciutto, ham, mortadella, etc.
Capers and olives.
Olives and preserved vegetables.
Fresh pastas and gnocchi.
Tomatoes in winter.
"Gourmet" sauces from America!
Gaby bought some tuna for searing.
Then an "imbiss" (or snack): a rot-wurst from a Schlemmermeyer
window in the pedestrian zone of Frankfurt...you can have a real
With mustard or ketchup, if you like.
