Try some authentic, traditional, regional German food for your next dinner party!

German regional foods

 Share your German culture with your friends and family, especially if you love German food.

As well, enjoy learning about some other areas of German cooking at the same time.

Germany is divided into more than 50 regions usually based on landscape and geography.

Politically, there are 16 federal states in Germany, each one unique in its history and cuisine. 

Let's travel to each one and see what's different.


You'll need to subscribe to my free newsletter "Just like Oma ~ Kaffeeklatsch" to see more info, extra recipes, and special tips from me, Oma Gerhild!

(The moment you subscribe, you'll also get my free downloadable "Herbs and Spices for the German Kitchen" poster!)

Starting January, 2016, I'll be adding a German state every month. After that, we'll start on the regions!

Click on the ones with the maps, below, to start your travels!

German Federal States

These are still to be added:

Baden Württemberg

Lower Saxony


North Rhine Westphalia



Since I've visited most of these German states, I'll be able to pass on tidbits of information and interesting things I've learned. There will a section for the favorite foods, especially related to the agriculture of the area. 

Recipes will be added that are traditional for that state. There's even a place at the bottom of each page for you to add your own dishes. 

Let's make this the BEST collection of Regional German Food on the WEB!

States versus Regions of Germany

Germany is made up of the above mentioned 16 federal states. However, Germans really like to be identified with a region, of which there are more than 50 different ones! Once we've traveled through the federal states, we'll be tackling the regions! Keep watching!

Recommended by Chef Glenn

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!

Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety

Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
