“My favorite German food is Kässpatzen. It is one of the most typical dishes in Bavaria. Whoever doesn’t know it is not a real German…ha ha! A long time ago, farmers cooked the Kässpatzen because it is cheap and good. The ingredients are not expensive, it is easy to make and it tastes delicious. Today the German Spatzen are one of the most popular dishes. Here is my secret recipe (for 4 people).”
“My kids love this meal and they say it’s a bit like mac and cheese. But it’s definitely not—it’s waaaay better, I promise!”
