Cheers for Beers

In case you weren't able to book your own tickets to Munich this week to celebrate the all too indulgent Oktoberfest, we've got a few ideas up our sleeves at the North Park Farmer's Market to help you throw your own lively festival. Oktoberfest began as a wedding celebration for Crown Prince Luitpold I and Princess Theressa of Bavaria, and has since transformed into a festival for music, dancing, singing, eating -- and lots and lots of beer drinking. 

Gather your friends and family and enjoy a feast of royal proportions with these rich recipes: Try a vegetarian take on traditional Bierocks and pick up a jar of spicy sauerkraut from Happy Pantry, swing by Taste Cheese for some yummy, savory spreads, and put them together on fresh slices of sourdough bread from Belen Bakery. If you want some meat, take home a pound of savory ground beef from Da Le Ranch to add to the dish. Or create your own German style potato salad using Russet potatoes from Produce Stand, onions and parsley from Suzie's Farm.  Make Jagerschnitzel to meets everyone's needs, using Kawano Farms mushrooms, Bari's garlic olive oil, pork from Da Le Ranch, and Spring Hill Cheese new slightly sweet sour cream. 

Oh and don't forget your authentic, german style beer. Stop by the Linkery or Ritual Tavern on your way home for a pint!
