Chocolate Coated Grapes & Oktoberfest

26 Oct

During last week of September we had been to Munich which is one of the largest city in Germany. For the first time I had a chance to visit the Oktoberfest. Oktoberfest is  a traditional event and one of the largest fair in the world celebrated for 16 – 18 days . I just cannot forgot those colourful drindl’s .(traditional costume for woman in Bavarian region of Germany).  Lederhose is Men’s costume .(Leather troussers, shirt and Leather shoes).

This fest is famous for it’s fresh wheat Beer , white sausage and Sour cabbage. There were also Grilled chicken, Roasted pork, Grilled duck and different sausages. Lebkuchen is yet other speciality which is available in different decorated colours all in heart shaped.

We were enjoying some of the rides and we came across a fruit candy’s stall, which was attractive and colourful. We tried some of those and we liked it.  The next day, I tried this choco coated Jumbo grapes at home and it was looking great and beautiful than the store bought. The recipe is very simple and it tastes wonderful.

Ingredients:

  1. Jumbo Grapes – 200 gms
  2. Chocolate Bar – 250 gms
  3. White chocolate – 50 gms
  4. Skewer – 5

Method:

1. Double boil the chocolate in a bowl.( Boil water in a medium sized pan and keep a vessel on boiling water and add the chocolate pieces and keep stirring continuously till the chocolate melts in to a smooth consistency).

2. Insert the grapes into skewer and spoon the melted chocolate in to the grapes skewer. Turn all the sides and do the same as it forms a choco layer on grapes.

3. Melt white choco and using a piping bag or ziplock bag pipe into your favorite designs.

4. Refrigerate it for half an hour and consume it within 3 days as fresh fruits inside. Enjoy!!!

Some of the pictures from Oktoberfest…..

People enjoying the Beer from those Biergarten. There were also small restaurants set up in this fair. Getting a table place is not so easy there.

I am not there, among those people who is flying in the sky.

Yet another funny ride. At some point they splash water on the riders.

Look at those Makrelen fishes in a open grill. They were just tasting awesome.

Candy Stall. Apples, Grapes, Straberries and Banna’s were getting  a new color in this shop.

Sugar glazed jelly candy fruits.

Lebkuchen. A fine Biskut which is sold during fest and fair and  aslo in Christmas market.

In this fair one can’t expect to have short drinks. Even if it is a Soft drink the minimal quantity which is offered was 300ml. Needless to say Beer is consumed by most of them as long drinks here.


It was a great fun and a nice to learn Bavarian traditions.
