Wattengenuss

In Ostfriesland just like everywhere else, the current developments in agriculture, food industry and marketing lead to problems: Despite high agricultural support, farms are dying, rural structures and farm culture is fading out; the monopolization in the food industry and trade diminish the variety on offer and regional particularities.

To defy this trend, East Frisian restaurants and the Ecologic network ONNO have founded the initiative "Wattengenuss". With their menus, these gastronomic institutions are contributing to the preservation of East Frisian cuisine and bring home the variety of the East Frisian kitchen, to both their own people and guests.

Wattengenuss is standing as a sign of quality for a vary and modern cuisine on the base of regional products. So, regional cycles are closed. The net products remain in the region, short transport ways help to avoid environmental pollution and spare natural resources. Products which were altered in genetic manner do not come on the table of these restaurants.

Ammerland - Where eel and bacon breckon

The „bacon heaven“ of Germany is situated in the Ammerland, where chubby, well salted and smoked pieces of meat are traditionally left to hang on the ceilings of old farmhouses for months, smoked in alder and beech wood.For lovers of other culinary specialties, there’s discovery tour into the small region between Ostfriesland and Oldenburg.

Here, the eels are taken directly from being caught to the smoking oven.The „Smoortaal“ – this is what they call the smoked eel in Lower German language – has been a specialty from the Zwischenahner Meer for an estimated for 890 years. According to history, around 1108, count Egilmar I. delivered the delicacy to the monastery of Iburg.

The special rites of eating eel are just as old as the smoking recipes, which are today celebrated in traditional restaurants. It begins with a „Löffeltrunk“ (spoon drink), a schnapps you drink from round tin spoons following a historical toast speech. Then, all guests may choose their own eel to eat with the fingers. You need a bit of skill to pull the head in a way so the skin peels without tearing. Of course, a strong beer is a part of the ceremony, later there is schnapps to help digest the meal. Schnapps is poured over the guest’s hands after the meal to clean.
