A Bavarian Sandwich with Obatzda and spicy Radish

A Bavarian Sandwich with Obatzda and spicy Radish

In a Bavarian beer garden, you can be sure you will find plenty of beer, sausages and at vesper time a traditional delicacy which is served with bread, I’m talking about Obatzda also known as Obatzter meaning mashed. Drinking beer in Bavaria demands strong physical condition as it’s served in a 1 liter mug, the “mass”. You may imagine that it’s quite helpful to have  some rich food on the side…

Savoury folk beware


Just in case there are some smug savoury souls out there who think they will stay slim in Munich, Cake Girl has news for you.  Not only do you have to negotiate the dozens of sausage varieties but also Obazda (known outside of Bavaria as Obatzda).  It’s a cheese spread, served chilled in beer gardens for slathering onto bread and bretzels. 

It’s one of those foods that is best enjoyed without knowing what it’s made of.  But I just couldn’t help myself - a hazard of my hobby - and investigations revealed this more-ish dip is made up of two-thirds mashed camembert (or similar) cheese and one-third butter.  Oh my goodness.  Even Cake Girl thinks this is pretty shocking.  It was enough to distract me from wondering where the pink-orange colour came from (paprika, as it turns out).
