Kölsch (collaboration)

A couple of years ago I visited Cologne for a few days and my biggest impression of the city was how alien the dome looked like. The church is like a huge mother ship that landed in the middle of the city. This kind of huge contrast in architecture is something I enjoy very much! Another memorable moment was when, after a long walk, my husband and I sat down at an outdoor pub where we immediately were served beer in tiny glasses. As the beer was delicious we kept drinking accompanied with herring. Until recently I had no idea I was drinking Kölsch. Kölsch is a warm fermented beer that is a specialty of Cologne.

Read Steen Hanssen‘s article about Kölsch (illustrated by me) over at Honest Cooking and learn much more about this big beer that is best served in small glasses. (This is my second job together with Steen, see also White Asparagus).

  1. I agree with your impression of Cologne… and to think I didn’t know what I was drinking when I was there

  2. I keep reading about kolsch, and now I’ve started seeing it all over Philadelphia, too. It must be the official beer of summer. I love it, so I am glad to hear that so many people are fans. Lovely drawings and post.

  3. Thanks Madame Fromage. I had no idea that Kölsch had become so popular over there. I have been in Sweden all summer… will look for it when I’m back in the NYC!
