Dirndl kitchen is a German food blog dedicated to all of those that love Germany or grew up in Germany like me and moved to the US or other countries and miss one of the most essential parts of German culture, the amazing German food.

When I first moved to the United States in 2009, I felt very deprived of the German way of eating. To this date, I still miss German cake and coffee time at 3 p.m., so I decided to educate my fellow American friends by writing about German customs and food… which of course involves a ton of cooking, converting of grams to ounces and cups, and drinking of Paulaner Hefeweizen! A brand new post gets published every Monday, usually featuring something I cooked for my husband Jason and our friends. I also post about travel and style (and this may be mainly on my Instagram account, so make sure to follow me there, too! @dirndl_kitchen).

Why “dirndl kitchen” you ask? A dirndl is a traditional Bavarian dress that is worn to Oktoberfest in Munich (as pictured above), and I just thought it was a fun way to tie in more German style into my German blog!
