Authentic Neuemberger Bratwurst and Sauerkraut – Saturday, May 10

Authentic Neuemberger Bratwurst and Sauerkraut – Saturday, May 10

11 a.m. – 2 p.m. at a private home in Honolulu

Join us for a German lunch that couldn’t be more traditional if you were sitting on Nuremberg’s famous town square, enjoying a glass of Bavarian beer with Nuernberger Bratwurst, potato salad and sauerkraut.

Our food purveyors are Axel and Thomas, who-with their Wurstwagen lunch wagon-are a welcome addition to the Honolulu foodie scene. Nuernberger Bratwurst is a trade-marked delicacy that originates in the Bavarian city of Nuremberg, and Axel and Thomas, who hail from that area, have perfected the taste.

The lunch will start with a sauerkraut-making demonstration before we sit down to a menu of bratwurst prepared two ways – Grilled and poached and served with potato salad and kraut. All menu items are house-made. Although the pork is currently sourced from the mainland, in the true spirit of Slow Food, plans are to use local pork as soon as it is feasible.

Sauerkraut shares a common heritage with the beloved island staple, kim chee. Since the fermentation process takes time, there won’t be any take-home samples of kraut, but diners may pre-order kraut and additional bratwurst: Sauerkraut 1kg (about 2lbs) = $3.00; 25 bratwurst = $20. All pre-orders are payable directly to the Wurstwagen guys on May 10.

Cost for the demonstration and dinner is $30 for Slow Food members; $40 non-members. Bring your own choice of beer. Space is limited to 12. RSVP by May 6.
