Patti Guliano, owner of the Broken Brick in New England, went back to her German roots as she served an authentic German feast at her restaurant on Sunday, August 16. Guliano served Borchst soup, Kraut Nip (Sauerkraut and Dumplings), Cheese Buttons, Sausage, German Potato Salad, and for dessert Cheese Pies (Kuechen).

Guliano, with the help of her sister Tina Gullickson, cooked most of Saturday, preparing for the Sunday meal.

To honor their mother Minnie Koffler who passed away in 2003, the sisters used their mom’s recipes for the meal.

“All that German food that we had is what mom used to make,” Guliano said. “From the Borchst soup down to the cheese pie.”

The tables at the Broken Brick were filled with customers, the majority of them having German ancestry themselves. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the food and the company, as many stayed and visited for awhile.

Outside customers could hear Polka music as Clif Walter sang and played the keyboard for everyone to enjoy. There were even some couples enjoying the music so much that they decided to dance some Polka’s on the sidewalk.

Guilano wants to thank all the help she had to make the meal a success, especially her sister Tina for the making of all the pies, and to her friend Del Rae Jung who made all the cheese buttons.

“Those were very, very good,” Guiliano said.

Guiliano also would like to thank her customers for supporting the meal, and is thinking about having another German meal sometime in late October. On August 30, she is planning on having cream chicken and meat balls as a special.
