Otto von Bismarck

Have you ever wondered why so many delicious dishes are dedicated to Otto von Bismarck (1815-1898), head of According to Reich German?

Mainly to celebrate his political skills, but also because of the proverbial voracity the character, He leaving stunned his contemporaries already.

Great “mangione” and wine drinker, Bismarck could not resist the lure of good food and he knew a lot of cooking recipes.

I loved le hard-boiled eggs (Apparently he could eat up to a dozen in a few minutes) and all kinds of meat, in particular that of fagiano, especially if it accompanied by sauerkraut and a generous splash champagne.

But they went too well the prosciutto, the smoked goose breast, the caviar and the very local oysters (Photo gives: theguardian.com).
