1. Germans don’t have their own cuisine.
Germans are sometimes a bit shy about their cuisine, which tends to be simple, rustic, and with regional ingredients. We are often made fun of for our use of potatoes, sauerkraut and sausage, and with time we just learned to keep our mouths shut.
We might not use fancy ingredients like the French, nor do we have the reputation of a life-prolonging cuisine like the Italians do, thanks to their olive oil. But we do have our own cuisine, and yes, potatoes, sauerkraut and sausage are an important part of it. Happiness often lies in the simplest things, no?
