Oktoberfest Party Menu – Bon Appetite!

Oktoberfest kicks off this weekend Saturday, September 20th – below is a great menu so you can celebrate and get of taste of tradition at home!

Wow, did Bon Appetit get it right with this menu for Oktoberfest!  The dishes are a bit more time consuming than those I usually share, but as far as Oktoberfest menus go these are the best I have ever seen!  The Bratwurst Bites are the most complicate, but the other items on the menu are do-able for those of us that are short on time.   You can make the Brisket a day ahead and since it feeds 12 the work is worth the reward.  Give the kale a try, you’ll be surprised and it’s so good for you. To read the full article with recipes go to  Bon Appetit.
