If you live and breathe Bavarian cuisine, you should be rewarded for it. With the classification „Highly Commended Bavarian Cuisine“ we’re placing the spotlight on regional cuisine. Each area of Bavaria has its own typical ingredients, dishes and preparation techniques. These dominate the image of the region and are as important for making locals feel at home as they are to interested tourists.
