Is there something more delicious than a fish sandwich with the sea swoosh in the ears and the view over its waves? It is a must for everyone, who stays at the Baltic Sea, even if it’s only for one day.
In the “3 Seaside Resorts” there are still fishers, who swim out in their wooden fishing boats in the Baltic Sea, before the sun even comes out from it. Their number has seriously decreased in the past years though. As the sun comes out and they pull the boats up the beach, you may observe these usually pretty taciturn men in their orange oilskins while shelling the fish. That’s because the fish from the morning catch are being processed immediately, so that at midday it can be smoked, marinated or eaten with gusto as a Bismarck or Matjes herring, or as fried fish, whatever someone likes, in the many small fishing huts in the middle of the dunes. It’s impossible to enjoy fresher insular specialities and with more local flavour.
Besides many small, rustic and authentic restaurants with their tasty fish kitchen and appetizing home cooking, there are places, that will also tickle a gourmet’s palate. Around the Heringsdorf “Haus Kulm” are situated gourmets’ restaurants, with refined creations for your eyes and taste buds. It’s the same if it’s experimental, fond of spices or classical French cuisine – the cook’s guarantee for pure seduction are fresh and local ingredients and the love for food.
Here some highlights of the culinary calendar:
As the herring migration starts in spring, the “Usedom Herring Weeks” begin. Restaurants on the whole island participate in this event and they conjure up herring menus which melt in one’s mouth. The most original herring dish gets even an award, the golden herring cup.
Every year, on the Saturday after the Ascension Thursday, the top cooks of the “3 Seaside Resorts” come up with a truly unique gourmet event: the Grand Schlemm. Epicures of fancy culinary experience meet up in order to taste a 10 dishes menu, strolling along the beach between the piers in Ahlbeck and Bansin. This is a maritime feast on the highest level. The sea swoosh is included. You can sample it at www.grandschlemm.de.
The autumn in the “3 Seaside Resorts” is dominated by the “Wild Weeks”. The multitude of wild animals on the island causes the delivery of fresh game meat to the kitchens and restaurants, which enriches the menu cards with game meat specialties, that are 100% bio.
