An Oktoberfest party is a wonderful idea! Having lived in Germany for a year as part of my degree, something I came to love (after much trepidation, I must say) is obatzda, that cheese, beery, caraway-suffed spread you find in Biergärten across Bavaria. Easy to make and addictive to eat. 😂

Hello. Fiona. Another enjoyable post, thank you! My German mum-in-law puts home made chicken broth in her potato salad (rather than bouillon). I know that's more work (I make chicken broth with the carcass of a roast chicken each time I make one) then pour into an ice cube tray and freeze. Then just take one out and defrost for a potato salad. It makes it really creamy somehow and also even more nutritious - the bone broth contains all those micro minerals good for strengthening OUR bones as, er hem, we age.

I love German potato salads! Will put this one on the list. Oktoberfest in Stuttgart some years ago was hectic, with a live traditional band, plenty of Wurst and potatoes, and of course ... beer! We were a huge family/friends group with lots of dancing. Immense fun!

The moment you mentioned that chicken and potato salad, I thought, oh, please please, Fiona, have recipes. I have potatoes. I have fresh local chicken being delivered tomorrow (joys of living in Madison, Wisconsin) And there they are! Thank you!
