Hello! I’ve done it! Eating Wiesbaden is no more. Introducing the new home of German food and drink as explored by me, with great enthusiasm, in the Germany’s beautiful Riesling country: this is A Sausage Has Two.
I imagine you have some questions.
A Sausage Has What?
The name comes from a German saying, Alles hat ein Ende, nur die Wurst hat zwei, which translates as, “everything has an end, only the sausage has two” – everything must come to an end. Whether you’d like to think of that sausage as pork, beef or seitan is entirely up to you…
Why the change?
Eating Wiesbaden started out as a home for restaurant recommendations in and around the town in which I live, however it quickly evolved into a place for me to also explore traditional German cuisine and get overexcited about seasonal eating. As the range of content expanded, I felt Eating Wiesbaden outgrew its name.
So what’s new?
Other than the shiny new look, there’s all sorts of new content I’m excited to share. I’ll continue to write about traditional German food, seasonal eating and where to eat out in Germany’s beautiful Rhein-Main region, but there’ll also be new bits and pieces on offer, such as theme-led series, starting with How to be Vegan in Germany, which will getting underway very soon.
My restaurant recommendations are all now much easier to browse, by location; the recipe collection is arranged by season; and my Seasonal Eating Guide is all in one place. There’ll be new sections appearing soon for those of you who aren’t allergy-free omnivores (so, vegans, vegetarians and the gluten-free for starters) and a travel page for those of you looking for food and/or drink-related experiences in the area, such as food tours and wine walks. There’ll also be an introduction to various ingredients and culinary traditions in the miscellany of German food; and finally, alongside my updated About page, there’s now a Resources page, where you’ll find the details of all my favourite German food-related reading, both online and off.
Have a good root around to see what’s changed – and if you happen upon a weird glitch, find something tricky to navigate, or if there’s a link that’s not working or missing altogether, I’d love you to tell me about it so I can fix it.
If you like what you see here, please update your bookmarks and blogrolls and I’d love you to share the site with your friends (and family, and colleagues, and that chap you met in the bar last night). But first things first: I’d love to know what you think of the new site. I can’t wait to get started: thank you for stopping by!
p.s. I’ve quietly changed all my social media tags to @asausagehastwo. It’s only Facebook, of course, that’s being difficult about it, but if you liked Eating Wiesbaden there before, you should hopefully soon be finding that you now like A Sausage Has Two instead. Fingers crossed things won’t get too messy in the process.
