I tried this today at lunch on the advice of a colleague.
Sülze, from the Wikipedia Germany article
It tasted, well… I mean, look at it, for God’s sake, that is what it tasted like. The picture actually does not do justice to the congealedness of the beast. But I had to try it (I don’t know why).
Even considering that I only got the cafeteria-style version of this dish, I plan no further experiments involving this particular German culinary tradition. Were the very greatest German chef to invite me to his house to dine on sülze (ZOOHL-tseh), I would politely decline.
