Porcelain, glass, linen

Fine dining is enhanced by the right table dressing: nowhere has as many glass-making businesses close together as the Upper Palatinate and Bavarian Forest.

Spiegelkarpfen (oben) und Schuppenkarpfen

Upper Palatinate Carp

The geographical and climatic conditions in the Upper Palatinate pool region are especially good but a deliberately sparing, natural feeding system contributes to the quality of the carp here: the slow growth period guarantees a fish with lean, firm flesh, which is not only easier to digest but also rich in valuable proteins and unsaturated fatty acids.

Zu einem süffigen Zoigl gehört eine herzhafte Brotzeit

Gherkins

The gherkin farmers from Europe’s largest contiguous growing area in the Lower Bavarian region of golf courses and spa resorts sell their produce to fast food chains across the globe. Burgers require the biggest gherkins from the first harvest. The smaller gherkins, which are harvested at regular intervals after that, end up in the glass jars of various brands.
