If you read my previous post, you know I was on the injured list for a while. Recovering from knee surgery shouldn't have kept me from blogging, but it did. Certainly didn't keep me from eating!
The weekend before my surgery was Oktoberfest Zinzinnati and I went on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday was super-windy and chilly but I went during the day on Sunday and was able to embark more-fully on food adventure. One of my friends found out Julie Niesen Gosdin of Wine Me Dine Me was doing food tours at Oktoberfest and it turned out to be an informative little food frenzy. I'd say I got a different taste of Oktoberfest than I have in years past; pun intended.
Since it's been a while, some of the details have slipped my mind but I tried to remember at least the name of the dish and what I liked about it.
First off, can't go to Oktoberfest without a cream puff. Honestly, I don't really like cream puffs. They're ok, but it's not something I crave or feel like I just have to have. My sister, on the other hand, can't get enough cream puff. She insisted this one from Schmidt's of German Village had a slight taste of pickles in the custard. I concurred.
