Cookbook Generation Riesling - Game Burger
February 23rd, 2019 | main dishes
I’m continuing my culinary journey with the cookbook of the “Generation Riesling” in one of the famous German wine-growing regions, the Moselle. There, the winery “Wein+Gut Oster” is located. I tried the burger with venison patty. Family judgment: Burger in a class of its own!

The “Generation Riesling” is an association of 600 young German winegrowers under the age of 35. Actually, it is the largest young winegrower organization in the world(!). 60 young winemakers now present their favourite recipes in the wine cookbook of the Generation Riesling. One of them is Daniel Oster. He is represented with a very delicious game burger. The cranberry sauce is seasoned with Harissa – just delicious! There is no question of “fast food” with this burger, especially if you also bake the rolls yourself. This burger is a must…
Each recipe in this cookbook also provides the appropriate wine recommendation – ingenious! What a pity that the variety of these delicious wines is usually not available in the wine shop around the corner. However, the individual winemakers are happy about any direct order and also deliver smaller quantities.
The winery of the Oster family in Ediger-Eller has been established already in the 18th century. Kathrin and Daniel Oster took over the helm in 2013. A traditional company in the third generation. For the Osters it is important to bring together old knowledge and modern ideas. What could fit better than a crisp, modern burger to the traditional Riesling of the Moselle. You’ll find Daniel Oster’s wine recommendation below, below the recipe.

WINE RECOMMENDATION by DANIEL OSTER
Fine fruit notes and savory spiciness come together in this dish – this steep vineyard Riesling sets a suitable accent: aromas of apricots, peaches and herbs, nutty, vegetal and earthy-mineral notes, mineral notes and a slender body.
Alternatively, Daniel Oster recommends:
2017 Pinot Noir dry

Langos – a Hungarian snack
In Budapest, you get it everywhere: Lángos – a fried potato-yeast dough spread with garlic and sour cream. Grated cheese and a touch of paprika complete the taste. Whether it tastes just as good at home… We tried it. And, yes! Lángos are delicious, even at home!read more
