Luxembourg

Food similar to French fare, but comes in larger portions.

Eating in Luxembourg is similar to eating in France but portions are larger, showing the influence from its other neighbor, Germany. The best-known foods—such as fresh baguettes, cheese and charcuterie—are ideal for afternoon picnics. Extremely high-quality ingredients are produced in Luxembourg, such as miel Luxembourgeois de marque nationale, honey that is protected under EU law. Other specialties include fresh local fish; Ardennes smoked ham; hare and wild boar; calves' liver dumplings with sauerkraut and boiled potatoes; black pudding and sausages with mashed potatoes and horseradish; and green bean soup. Small fruit tarts are a treat, especially in September when plums are in season.

Lëtzebuerger Grillwurscht are spicy sausages sold by street vendors. Another notable on-the-go snack is Grmoperekicheicher, deep-fried spiced potato pancake with chopped onions and parsley. Locals wash it all down with white and sparkling wines produced along the north bank of the Moselle, which has a winemaking history dating back to the Romans. (Look for the National Mark, which identifies authentic Luxembourg wine.) Visitors will also find local and international beers galore.
