Food culture and recipes

Bergisch cuisine is characterised by special recipes, but also by simple regional ingredients. The people in the Bergisches Land were poor, the soil was poor. There were potatoes, eggs and milk. This gave rise to Bergische specialities such as Bergische Potthucke or Pillekuchen.

The Bergische delicacies originally came from a hearty cuisine with simple ingredients, such as Kottenbutter, the typical breakfast bread of the grinders in the past.

The classic of the Bergisches Küste is the Bergische Kaffeetafel - coffee drinking "met allem dröm on draan". To this day, it stands for hospitality and sociable togetherness.
