Oktoberfest:

by Chelsea Matthews

Beyond Brews

Oktoberfest is a beloved fall tradition, celebrated all over the world. Traditional German food, lederhosen and oompah music are all well-known standards for the autumnal fest. In Munich, Germany, the celebration is one of far more cultural history and significance, and one that has been around for over 200 years. While a nice cold brew and salty snack are a given appearance, remembrance of simpler times and humble beginnings make authentic Oktoberfest a truly unique experience.


L

ong before cities around the globe lined their streets with tents of beer, pretzels, and bratwurst, Oktoberfest got its roots from a royal wedding celebration in Germany. Before Meghan and Harry, Kate and William, or Diana and Charles, Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxony-Hildburghausen were married in 1810. To mark this joyous occasion, the citizens of Munich, Germany were invited to revel at a festival in the fields in front of the city gates. Those fields were eventually renamed

and more towards fun and frivolity. The horse races were discontinued from 1945 all the way until 2010 when the 200th anniversary of the festival was celebrated.

six Munich breweries still continue to provide the libations. While these large beer tents are often thought to be the main draw of the festival, it is still primarily a festival largely attended by families of all ages.

ENTERTAINMENT Theresienwiese, or Theresa’s Fields, in honor and welcome of the new Crown Princess, though these days they are known to the locals simply as the “Wies’n.” Over 10,000 people attended the festival, which lasted for five days.

HORSE RACES

The main spectacle of the very first Oktoberfest celebration was a horse race at the conclusion of the evening. When the race was repeated the following year, the tradition of an annual celebration wad begun, though as years passed the activities moved more

Eight years after the first event, carousels and swings began to show up to entertain party goers, and by the 1830’s vendors of beer and fish started selling their wares to ever increasing number of attendees. In the 1890’s, electricity brought with it a wave of new entrepreneurs carting animals shows, attractions, and rides waiting.

BEER STALLS, TENTS, HALLS

Evolving from the humble beer stalls in the early celebration, larger beer halls and tents brought together by inn owners and local breweries have taken over the refreshment portion of Oktoberfest. In fact, the original

FOOD

Savory meats are a very popular choice during the autumnal celebration. Schweinsbraten is pork served in juicy slices alongside gravy, while schweinshaxe, more commonly known as a ham hock, is roasted to tender inside, crispy outside perfection. Weisswurst, a bright white sausage made from veal and pork bacon, is probably the most unusual to Americans. Hearty carbohydrates are other essential ingredient to an authentic Oktoberfest celebration. Pretzels are an obvious choice and definitely not one to skip, as they are a simple, filling staple perfect for soaking up mass amounts of beer. Spätzle is a dense noodle dish, which is often thought similar to mac n’ cheese. And knödel, a poached or boiled dumpling, is the perfect complement to the robust meats and brews on the table.

Strudel

n easy alternative to hand-stretching strudel dough, puff pastry is quick and delicious. The bread crumbs help to absorb the juices and avoid overflow. Granny Smith, Gala, or Macintosh apples hold up the best when baked. • 1 sheet Puff Pastry (thawed) • 1 Jelly Roll Pan • 3 Apples (peeled and chopped small) • Juice of ½ lemon • ¾ cup White Bread Crumbs • ¼ cup Granulated Sugar • ¼ cup Brown Sugar • 1 tsp Cinnamon • ½ cup Toasted Walnuts (optional) • ½ cup Golden Raisins (optional) • 6 tbls Butter (melted and divided) • 2 tbls Sour Cream

Preheat oven to 325°. In food processor, grind 2 slices bread into fine crumb. Toast bread crumbs on a jelly roll pan in the oven until golden, about 6-8 minutes, then let cool. Adjust oven temp to 375°. Toss small apple bits into lemon juice. In a small bowl, mix sugars and cinnamon. Toast and chop walnuts. On a lightly floured surface, roll out thawed pastry into a thin 12"x16” sheet. Place dough on the same pan with parchment. Sprinkle bread crumbs evenly on bottom half of longer side, leaving a 1” border around. Quickly toss apples with sugar mixture, nuts and raisins and pile over bread crumbs. Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Fold outside edges over 1” to overlap apples. Using the parchment paper to lift the bottom edge, carefully roll the dough over the apples, being sure to keep edges tucked in. Lay seam side down in jelly roll pan. Brush with remaining 3 tablespoons of melted butter. Bake 20 minutes, then pull out and brush with 1 tablespoon of sour cream. Bake 15 minutes, then brush with rest of sour cream. Finish baking another 5-10 minutes until golden, and any juice that has escaped is bubbling—a total of 40-45 minutes. Let cool, then dust with powdered sugar. Slice and serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Serves 6-8 people.

The French Connection Château de Beaucastel & Tablas Creek Perspective

An event to honor a true visionary of the wine world, Robert Haas (1927-2018). Haas stood at the top of the wine world as a producer, importer and industry sage. Haas was instrumental in shipping and elevating our wine tastes. He also impacted the quality of wines imported to the United States. Robert Haas was the first to import Château Pétrus to U.S. soil, but his over 50-year relationship with Rhone Valley icon Château Beaucastel and the Perrin family best exemplifies his lifelong commitment to bringing the great wines of the world to the U.S. market. Please join for a progressive dinner that features a vertical tasting of the wines of Château Beaucastel and Tablas Creek from 1998 to 2011. Join us on the silky sands of Longboat Key Beach, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico for this magical evening.
