Twenty years after I immigrated from Germany to the United States, my ties to my native country are still strong. From the red and black currants I grow in my garden, to the bread, cakes and pastries I bake, there is a taste of Germany, a little bit of German customs and traditions in my life every day.
That’s why I am happy, with my German food blog, Spoonfuls of Germany, to be part of The German-American Friendship Year (Deutschlandjahr USA). The campaign officially kicks off on October 3, 2018, and runs for an entire year.
On Spoonfuls of Germany I explore Germany through its food from the American vantage point. Based on the concept that many foods and dishes have a fascinating story behind them, the blog provides a personal window into Germany’s history, society, culture, politics, arts, and more.
During Deutschlandjahr, the blog will focus on German food culture in the United States, tracing its German origins, how it evolved, and profiling the people behind the food.

I wish I could grow red currants here in Texas, but it just is too hot. After living here for almost 30 years, I still miss some of the foods from home and make sure I stock up every time I go home to visit :).
Io sono italiana ma ho avuto L opportunità di visitare parecchie volte la Germania, un bellissimo paese specialmente la foresta nera❤ perché ho dei cari amici di lunga data che vivono là! Ti auguro un ottobre bellissimo🍀
(I’m Italian but I’ve had the opportunity to visit Germany a lot, a beautiful country especially the Black Forest, because I have dear long-time friends living there! I wish you a beautiful October.)
