Cheese is a staple of many cultures. The way a region enjoys its cheese can flavor not only its dishes, but can also be a reflection of the way its people approach life. From a hearty Bavarian side dish best enjoyed in a beer garden, to a mild but flavorful Arab delicacy often shared around the table, here are some of the best ways to enjoy cheese while traveling.
Bavaria offers much more than the beers during Oktoberfest. While sitting in a beer garden anywhere in the region, you’ll find the breakfast veal sausage Weiswurst and the popular Indian-influenced Currywurst on the menu. Accompanying them you’ll also often see kaesespaetzle, a popular dish akin to macaroni and cheese, with a gnocchi-like consistency due to its starchy origins. Sampling it, you’ll be rewarded with a delicious, carb-packed snack dripping with Emmentaler cheese and covered in onions. It’s been described as “what macaroni and cheese is trying to be.” The Swiss version may even be an ancestor to the popular American dish.
