From poor man’s food to the Chancellor’s favourite dish
When you go on a trip to the Palatinate, you can’t avoid trying a dish that might not immediately catch you eye: we are talking about the ‘Pfälzer Saumagen’ (Palatinate pig’s stomach). But even if the name is not particularly appetising, as is often the case in life, it’s what’s inside that’s important. Basically, the Plälzer Saumagen is a king of coarse sausage, which consists of pork, potatoes, sausage meat and aromatic spices. Whether served cold or warm, the Saumagen is THE speciality of the Palatinate and can be found on almost every menu in the region.
Delicacies lining the cycle path
But no matter where you go in the Palatinate, the best food is always provided. For example, the sporty Palatinate cycle tour takes you to Neustadt an der Weinstraße, where you should not only try the excellent wines, but also the heavenly ‘Dampfnudeln’ with wine sauce. When visiting the cathedral city of Speyer on the tour Speyer – Heidelberg – Worms, you should allow yourself enough time to indulge in the specialties of the region. ‘Flääschknepp’ (meat dumplings with horseradish sauce), grumbeersupp with Quetschekuche (potato and plum cake) and Kesselfleesch are just a few of the culinary temptations you will find in the Palatinate. And a glass of ‘Neie Woi’ (new wine) and the menu is perfect! Tuck in!
