Oktoberfest may have started as a celebration for a royal marriage, but it has grown into an annual festival of food, beer, culture, and music that attracts a crowd from around the world. Join Laura Pyles in class as she shares with you the history and traditions of Oktoberfest, as she teaches you how to create some classic dishes at home. You’ll make soft pretzel bites with sharp cheddar beer cheese; crispy bratwurst sausages with sauerkraut, herbs, and honey mustard; sauerbraten, a sweet and sour beef roast with gingersnap gravy, celery root, parsnips, and carrots; and horseradish cucumber salad with dill and parsley. You’ll decorate your own lebkuchenherz (traditional gingerbread cookies) with cute and silly sayings, then and tie on a string to wear around your neck and snack on while enjoying your favorite Oktoberfest beer!
