Remember yesterday when we wrote about Matt Rodbard and his piece about Israeli food and Michael Solomonov over at Food Republic? Well those crazy cats are continuing their tour of world cuisines and today are focusing on Germany. And guess who showed up to write about Jeremy Nolen, Brauhaus Schmitz and how Europeans think that Americans eat nothing but giant cartoon hamburgers?
It’s Drew Lazor, who has a nice piece on the often overlooked variety in German cuisine. To wit:
Of course, just like some foreigners believe Americans subsist solely on a diet of cartoon hamburgers, the typical Yankee perception of Germanic grub tends to be shortsighted and inaccurate. How it became this way is a slightly convoluted issue, but the good news is chefs like Nolen are hellbent on righting the schnitzel ship, once and for all.

Tonight, Brauhaus Schmitz is celebrating “Tag des Bieres” or German Beer Day. It is the anniversary of the Reinheitsgebot, the historic document that set definition of what beer is.
At 6 p.m., the the Brauhaus crew will be tapping a firkin of Mahr’s Hellerbock and giving that away for free. After that, it’s $15 liters of beer, where you get to keep the over-sized mug.

Last night it snowed. Today the wind howled and you had to wonder if this winter would ever just give up. But Twitter is abuzz with photos and tweets that proved spring is indeed here. Local chefs are tweeting up a storm of the ramps they’ve foraged and already gotten onto their menus.
