In the United States, the annual holiday known as Fourth of July, or Independence Day, is commonly celebrated with fireworks, friends and family, and lots of food. This year, together with Streetfood auf Achse, we are bringing a DelicioUS! 4th of July Festival to Berlin, Germany. From July 2-4, there will be a variety of American products that can be enjoyed at the Kulturbrauerei Berlin. The festival atmosphere will be accompanied by craft beers, Californian wines, and street food – including deep-fried croquettes.

About Fête de la Croquette

At the festival, a captivating American school bus, that has been turned into a modern food truck, is offering delicious croquettes. Seven Berlin chefs developed diverse croquette recipes prepared mostly with American ingredients. There is something for everyone – whether you prefer vegan, vegetarian, meat, or fish. Beyond the croquettes, the chefs’ creations highlight the versatility of American ingredients and how they not only can be enjoyed in American recipes, but also can be nicely prepared with ingredients and in recipes from around the world.
