Martinsgans (St. Martin’s Goose)

Goose was a common food of the Middle Classes from the Early Modern Period to the middle of the 20th century. Today it lives on mostly as a holiday dish for St. Martin's Day and Christmas, as typically associated with Catholic regions of Germany. This variation is a take on the most traditional version of the recipe. It is a simple roast with a wine sauce.

“Heaven and Earth” – German Black Pudding

Himmel und Erde or Heaven and Earth refers to the two kinds of potatoes in the dish, the sky apples, i.e., apples from trees, and earth apples, i.e., potatoes. It is essentially mashed potatoes with blood sausages, either as a puree or fried. A common dish from the Rhineland in Germany, it was once a staple of working class households.

Fuldaer Rabbit Stew (Dippehas)

Rabbit was once far more common than chicken in working and middle-class kitchens in the previous century. Its simple flavor and ease of cooking made it a staple. Today, chicken has largely supplanted rabbit in our diet, and recipes for it have disappeared from our cookbooks. This is a local variant of the classic German dish from the town of Fulda. As an ancient Catholic stronghold in a traditionally Protestant region, it had close ties to Franconia, which influenced the spices in this dish.

Its name translates to literally "rabbit in a pot" in the Hessen dialect.
