Column: German visit provides food for thought, tastebuds

For Wednesday’s column, I write a little about the customs but mostly about the food and beverages from Germany and from my overnight jaunt to the Czech Republic. Above, three types of sausages, with sauerkraut and potatoes, in Dresden; below, a knuckle, sauerkraut and bread dumplings, also in Dresden; at bottom, the staff at a Prague shop prepare trdelniks.

    It all sounds delicious! But how do you pronounce trdelnik?

      I haven’t heard it spoken — but I’m mentally saying “truh-DEL-nik.”

    I have a friend who lives in Prague and showed us many culinary
    delights. He explained the local food this way. “The entire purpose of
    our meals is to soak up beer efficiently.” Same for German food as
    well, I suspect.
