Bavarian food- pretzels, chocolate, and wild boar

Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Rothenburg ob der Tauber
Today we took a small car ferry across the Main River. We visited a Weinhaus that was designed by Hundertwasser. This 20th century architect created whimsical designs with bright colors and spiraling natural features. The winery had a fish pond to entertain the kids while we shopped for local Franconian wines. After the winery, we traveled to another impressive "spielplatz" (play area) complete with an in ground trampoline and a zipline swing in addition to the standard swings and slides. We had a traditional Bavarian picnic of mild cheeses, salami, soft pretzels, Krapfen (jelly filled donuts)and Kinderschocolade (smooth chocolate) for dessert.

We returned to pick up Edith's baby from her mom's house and then took the kids to a nearby ostrich farm. For dinner that night, Edith made veal with gravy and wild boar. The boar tasted a lot like very tender beef and was hunted by her husband, Harald. Harald was the local gamekeeper, which meant that he had the only license to hunt in the grounds around the village. He could invite others to hunt with him in his patch of forest and he was also the one responsible for keeping the forest clear of debris to limit fires. Edith's dad was also a gamekeeper in another village and had the additional job of cleaning up any road killed animals around his village. Hunting is also seasonal with restrictions about which animals can be taken during different times of the year.
