Re­fresh­ing sum­mer

Summer’s here and, as always, promises an abundance of culinary highlights and mouth-watering treats.

Blueberries, bilberries, whortleberries or huckleberries – whatever name you choose to give them, they all refer to those tasty blue berries from Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony). Chefs in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) use them to create some delicious seasonal dishes. Whether served with ice cream or baked in a pancake, as a main course or dessert, ‘the big blue ones’ from Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) are always a real treat. Several blueberry producers in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony) have joined forces to launch an initiative called Die blauen Höfe (‘the Blue Farms’). Now fans of the tasty blue fruit always know where they can buy them fresh from the farm or even pick their own.

Salads come in many different variations. There are tasty lettuces, for example, as well as beans, tomatoes or radishes. They can be used to conjure up a wide range of exquisite salads. Innovative recipes are also part of the gastronomic experience here. Fruit and vegetables are combined together in one dish. Fresh from field to fork, that’s when a salad is at its best. As a side dish, a main course, grilled or just as it is! A salad is simply one of the true pleasures of summer. Summer is also the time for ice cream. The delicious flavours from Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony)’s ice cream parlours are sure to cool you down in the tastiest possible way.

Guten Appetit! Relax and enjoy the light summer fare of Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony).
