Last week I had a Christmas dinner / team event at Novum in Nittel, Germany.
Nittel is a small village right in Germany, next to Luxembourg, across the river Mosel. There are numerous wine producers and cosy restaurants in the Weinstrasse (wine street).
We started off with some finger food.
The starter already felt like a main course: smoked salmon with a rösti (potato cake). It was so delicious and filling at the same time.
The person next to me had a carpaccio.
Our main course was to be prepared by ourselves on a hot stone.
Everyone had meat, but I had opted for the fish version.
The jacket potato was part of the main course.
The dessert looked beautiful but I would have preferred ice cream instead of the sorbet. Also the chocolate inside the moelleux au chocolat was, for my taste, not runny enough.
But I certainly didn't leave hungry. It was a fun evening in good company! Nittel is just a hop away across the border but to me it felt like being on holidays, far away.
