Feldsalat - Lamb's Lettuce or Field Salad
Sprigs of Feldsalat, the left one right side up, the sprigs on the right, showing the stem side & right side.
The bowl of salad below is without dressing, just with washed and ready leaves awaiting our supper last evening.
Another excellent Cordon Bleu, going back to the early and mid 1980s, was at the Kaiser in Sulz, now closed. That was Hans' and his son Heiko's favourite Gasthaus. Many of these closings are due to the children of a Gasthaus owner not wishing to carry on that family tradition, thus the Gasthaus discontinues as such. Often they are taken over by foreigners who offer Italian, Turkish, Greek or Chinese food instead, which means one less German Gasthaus in the town or city. Also, the many fast food outlets everywhere mean fewer customers at the regular German Gasthäuser. Luckily we still have plenty of the latter in which to eat, particularly in the country and away from the big cities.
