Eating out on Sunday evening…we sat in the garden of the restaurant and enjoyed the summer evening.
Bergisches Schnitzel is a breadcrumbed schnitzel with fried egg, bacon and roast potatoes.
Bergisch because it is a local dish here in the Bergisches Land.
(The Bergisches Land is a region in North Rhine-Westphalia in Germany. It emerged from the Dukedom of Berg. The name of the region is not derived from its mountainous terrain (German: Berg = mountain), but from the dukes of Berg. The dukes of Berg lived first in the Castle Berge in Altenberg, later then in the Castle “Schloss Burg” at the Wupper. It’s a natural preserve.)
