"When is a Hamburger a Hamburger?"
"When it's a hamburger made in Hamburg!"
The history of the hamburger (that common meat patty between two halves of a bun) is so difficult to establish. Just googling it will show you how contentious the argument is.
Does this popular American food really comes from Germany or not? The recorded history of goes back to Genghis Khan in the 12 century. Traditionalist will say that the original meat patty was first introduced at the end of the 19th century by a snack seller in Ohio who ran out of sausages to put in the bun.
It really doesn't matter to the Hamburgers (people from Hamburg), because their main cuisine is seafood. After all, the city is situated on Elbe River, which runs into the North Sea. It's is connected to the Baltic Sea by canal, has a lake in its center, and has more canals than Venice with over 2,000 bridges.
As well, it is an international harbor which has brought spices and foreign foods to this part of Germany for hundreds of years. This has greatly influenced the traditional foods available.
Hamburg's Favorite Foods
Aalsuppe (eel soup) originally meaning "all soup" made of everything except the kitchen sink. Eel was not part of it. However, because it sounded like "eelsoup" (Aolsuppe) in German, eel is often added, especially in restaurants, so that people won't complain that there's no eel in the "eelsoup".
I've teamed up with my own business coach, Renae Christine (yes, do google her!), to bring you this free masterclass. After you watch it, ask me any questions and I'll gladly answer them.
Don't hesitate. I'm not sure how long Renae will keep this free masterclass available.
PS: Yes, Renae really is as amazing as all the reviews say.
PPS: Yes, the course is for handmade items, but I've used it successfully for my cookbooks. I know others are using her methods for services, direct sales ,and even a local ice cream bar & grill that's constantly selling out. You've nothing to lose by taking a look.
