Karin: I am a native Detroiter, still living in the area, love to cook , bake, entertain and travel. I enjoy the wide variety of regional and ethnic foods in the American Kitchen, but my German roots created a passion for Bavarian dishes and baked goods. Together with my husband Rudy we owned and operated a Meat Store/Delicatessen for about 20 years, offering local and imported items from around the world.
Rudy: I was born in Bavaria and immigrated to the USA in 1969, was drafted and spend 1 year in Korea as a member of the US Army Military Police Corps. Worked in the meat industry and after awhile started the above mentioned meat store. After selling our store I started working in the spice industry until my retirement. Karin and I love to go back for visits to my native Bavaria, the keyword is visits because after awhile we look forward to coming back home to the USA.
During family visits in Bavaria we spend many hours exploring the region and surrounding countries, following suggestions of our friends and family of what to see and do.
Our experience in the meat industry gives us an insight on the subject, which we would like to share.
We hope, that we can give you some facts, hope to show you things that are helpful to you, introduce you to amazing sights, may be save you some money while meat shopping and even when traveling to Europe.
Thanks for visiting
Karin and Rudy
