A taste of Germany........das schmeckt gut!

 New potato, white asparagus and pork sausages.

White asparagus in continental northwestern Europe
Asparagus is very popular in the Netherlands, Spain, France, Poland, Belgium, Germany, and Switzerland, and almost exclusively white—else, it is specified by the local language term for "green asparagus". Compared to the latter, the locally cultivated so-called "white gold" or "edible ivory", also referred to as "the royal vegetable", is less bitter and much more tender. Freshness is highly regarded, and it must be peeled before cooking or raw consumption. (from Wikipedia)
  Freshly baked Bretzel
(pretzel in English).
