Oktoberfest is a great time to indulge in some traditional foods. The best of Oktoberfest includes:
• Hendl (chicken)
• Käsespätzle (cheese noodles)
• Schnitzel with noodles
• Beef, pork and potato filled recipes
Check with your local library for a traditional German cookbook and get cooking! This is a great opportunity to teach your kids about another culture.
Of course, beer is also another big party of Oktoberfest. Be sure to stock up on several kinds of German beers.
