Anonymous asked: Ed! It's your old pal Will Nuland! Anyway, big fan of the show. So, I lived in Germany for a couple of years after college and ran into some interesting foods. Most of them were meats or meat-based. One of the most compelling German meat phenomena is something called 'fleischsalat', which translates crudely to 'meat salad'. It's a mayonaise-based shredded meat concoction with tiny pickled things in it. Germans eat it for breakfast. Tried it? You should try it. Preferably on camera.
Whoa, long time. Good to hear from you!
My grandfather has made similar things. If it used to be an animal, he’s shredded it up into mayo for to put on sammiches. I’ll have to check around for a German market or beer hall that’ll sell me a few authentic gobs of it. I don’t think it’s the sort of thing I should try to make at home.
