Potato Dumpling with Mushroom Sauce – $4.50
A disappointing experience, the dumpling was very sponge-like and the mushroom sauce was not overly flavorful.
*NEW* Pork Schnitzel with Mushroom Sauce and Spaetzle – $6.25
The schnitzel is a big thumbs up from us. Great noodles and awesome gravy on top really add to this dish.
However, the pork actually tasted like a chicken patty to us. It’s not necessarily a bad thing, but when you’re expecting pork and taste something similar to chicken, it’s a little unexpected.
Although the schnitzel may taste a bit like chicken, the gravy alone is enough to give this dish a really good review.
Cheese Fondue in a Bread Bowl with Fresh Steamed Baby Vegetables and Marble Potatoes – $8.25
Served in a bread bowl with steamed baby vegetables and marble potatoes, this is the most amount of bread you’re going to get at the Festival and it’s a great dish to share. The cheese was good, but perhaps another half-ladle more would have helped finish off all the bread.
Black Forest Roulade with Cherry Whipped Cream – $4.25
In addition to being a good portion, the yule log’s chocolate and cherry flavors came together very well, while the cherry whipped cream was almost too subtle. It was worth the price.
*NEW* Linzer Cookie – $2.50
The Linzer cookie is very soft and very sweet! The jam inside is a bit tart, but it works well to offset the sugary top.
The powder on the top does make it a little bit messy, so maybe grabbing a fork and a knife might be the best, and cleanest way, to go about enjoying this treat.
Possmann describes their Pure Hard Apple Cider: “Possmann Pure Cider has a perfect balance of rich apple flavor while not too sweet and finishing dry. The flavor comes from our unique source of apples which are harvested exclusively from our 800+ farmers in the Hessen region of Germany. Our typical framer has 3 to 15 naturally occurring apple trees on their land that are not part of a cultivated orchard. These country apples provide a uniquely rich apple flavor.”
Possmann describes their Pure Hard Black Currant Apple Cider: “…Possmann Pure Cider has a perfect balance of rich apple flavor mixed with black currant for a taste that’s not too sweet and finishes dry.”
