You simply cannot fail to be impressed by the taste and flavours of traditional Lower Saxony food. In autumn and winter, curly-leaf kale is one of the best-known dishes from the Lower Saxony region. Oldenburg is the bastion of Lower Saxony kale growing, a vegetable interestingly known as “brown cabbage” in the Braunschweig region. Depending on the region, kale can either be served with Pinkel smoked Kaszanka sausage or Bregenwurst pork sausage.
