"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

=============================================================

My maternal grandparents were German-born immigrants who settled in Hondo, Texas. This particular region of Texas Hill Country has many German residents, as well as their traditions. The neighboring towns of New Braunfels and Castroville are known for restaurants dedicated to German cuisine. I remember a café in New Braunfels that prepared a wonderful Veal Schnitzel and German-style potato salad, which I will share with you. Venison sausage is also excellent with these potatoes.
