Just last month, at the beginning
of October, around 50 German students at Gillete Road Middle School got the
opportunity for some authentic German cooking and eating! Herr (pronounced
“hair”, meaning Mr.) Gerardi and Mrs. Hobbs collaborated to set the stage for
students to cook authentic German Käsespätzle
(homemade egg noodles with cheese), Petersilienkartoffeln (boiled potatoes with fresh parsley and butter),
as well as Knackwurst
(a short, plump sausage originating
from the Holstein region in Germany) . The Knackwurst was procured from Aldi’s and
their Oktoberfest sale, and in keeping with the German and Austrian cultural
values of buying locally, the potatoes and parsley were from the Syracuse
Regional Farmer’s Market.
Here, (right-to-left) Breanna Tucker, Joshua Wilk, Jordan Hudson ,Ann
Joseph and Jacob Parker learn the traditional method of making the Spaetzle
noodle, by pushing the dough off the end
of a spoon into boiling water.
