Top 10 Oktoberfest recipes

Now you can WOW your family and friends with tantalizing and delicious German food. Food that is both easy AND quick to make AND delicious AND so traditionally German!

That's me, Oma, on the right. And, only you'll know my secrets to preparing these dishes to resemble the old "tried and true" traditional methods with more modern ones.

For example, rouladen are one of the most traditional of all German meat dishes. They are time consuming to make, as well as expensive. I've created an alternative: flatladen. It tastes like just rouladen, as well as having the MOST delicious gravy. Only, it's a lot less work (and cheaper!)

Perhaps you're looking to make a German Black Forest cake? You can choose to make the traditional way from scratch made scratch. But, if you're in a hurry, there's an easy version made from a mix and a can!
