Dîner le samedi nuit, à l'Auberge de Hahndorf


Les touristes aiment visiter Hahndorf dans les collines d'Adelaïde, particulièrement les Allemands qui rient du nom; leur traduction signifie le 'Village de Coq'.
C'est une des nombreuses auberges, ici, avec une influence allemande, et ces gens britanniques dévoraient voracement leurs côtelettes de porc de Bavarois Kassler avec la choucroute et les pommes de terre allemandes faites dans la crème et la moutarde de grain entier avec la garniture de cresson de fontaine.
On pourrait facilement le discerner ils étaient de la Grande-Bretagne....

Saturday night dinner at the Hahndorf Inn
Tourists love visiting Hahndorf in the Adelaide hills, especially the Gemans who laugh at the name; their translation means Rooster Village.
This is one of the many inns, here, with a German influence and these British folk were tucking in to their Bavarian Kassler pork chops mit der sauerkraut and German potatoes done in cream and whole-grain mustard with watercress garnish.
One could easily discern that they were from Britain...

Hahndorf is one of my very favourite places in Adelaide. I love to browse in the shops along the main street. So many beautiful art and craft shops, great food and olde worldliness to enjoy.

They don't look fat or surly enough to be British, Monsieur B … though after eating all that German food they soon will be.

Ripper, Gypsy, It's always a good spot for a bight. The Japanese seem to have cottoned on to it as well !

Dive, what do you reckon we both look (and feel) like this morning ? British ?

Looks like a nice restaurant.

I posted a photo of deer today, at least my version. The only one's I could get. And, some snow on my personal blog.

My fiance told me there is an awesome chinese place in Hahndorf. Looking forward to visiting it! We even for a minute wanted to have our reception there! It was quickly shot down as the decor is no better then the local Mackers.

My Great-grandparents were German and I have the family sauerkraut recipe that has been handed down thru the generations.

If you want to clear the neighbourhood of vermin and unwanted guests just whack a pot on the stove and let her rip - phew!!!!!

PS How's ya back???
Oh and by the way I didn't realise daylight saving made such an impact on the time your way - is it still Saturday where you are????

Jules, I got a bit behind schedule this week, and now trying to catch up. That may take a while longer, but I don't like missing any day's postings. The back is reasonable, but sitting down is giving it the you-know-whats !

Don't put the sauerkraut on the stove when that luxury cruiser next comes in !!

I hope you'll get to show us other aspects of Hahndorf, a village that I've heard of but never visited.

Wow, another dinner party!
I think your blog must be the record holder of party posting. I'll end up thinking that you people in ADL just spend their time eating, drinking and being merry!

Going back to your previous posts, A$5 million for a piece of real estate, crikey this is ridiculous. There is'nt even a huge park around the house for that price... no privacy!!!
How much cheaper is it in ADL ?

M.Benaut said...

Nathalie,

For starters, you can't get harbour-side views in Adelaide. That would account for half of the asking price.

Perhaps one could say that in a comparable suburb, Adelaide prices would be 1/2 to 2/3 of Sydney prices.

I'll see how accurate my guess is, when I next speak to mon ami, Richard.

Nice atmospheric shot. I don't see tankards of German beer tho! Sensibly they are drinking good Barossa valley wine, I imagine.
