You don't have to travel far to celebrate German style.  Go ahead pour a cool one and schnitzel some veal. I've found all the recipes & cooks tools you need for October's best food fest. Lederhosen optional.

Veal Schnitzels With Burnt Caper Butter
Did you realize that there really is something called "Veal Leg Schnitzel?" This recipe calls for 8 of them. I have to say, besides a German Chocolate Cake, Veal Schnitzel gets my vote for the best German dish.

 Mama's German Chocolate Cake Recipe

I don't know about the beer and ice cream combo thing. It sure looks good, but really? Then I read that it is made with Chocolate Porter Beer and Biscoff Spread. The spread is actually a "cookie butter." I think I am open to giving it a try. What about you?
