It doesn’t hurt to have some food with a bit higher contents of fat for a cheerful New Year’s Eve party at home with friends. Below is a recipe for the classic biergarten dip from GDSPE, the Bavarian Obatzda. You can smear it on bread or pretzels or use it as a dip. Of course we also have a Bavarian Chefkoch video to make it easier for you to reach Bavarian gourmet peaks.
Mix crème fraîche, butter (softened), cream cheese, and camembert cheese (remove rind and chop into small pieces). Season with 1 T each black pepper, ground caraway seed, sweet paprika powder, chives, salt (about 1 tsp), and Tabasco or hot pepper sauce (to taste). Add a few fried onions in butter to mixture. Combine ingredients with an added shot of wheat or dark beer until smooth (or desired consistency is reached). Serve on a plate and garnish with chives, onion rings, and a pretzel.
