Vancouverites are a gluttonous bunch. So much so that you’ll find events, festivals and awards of all sorts. Case in point? A Sauerkraut Festival. Yes, the folks over at Okaya Sausage are putting together The Okaya Choucroute (Sauerkraut) Festival which runs January 23rd to 26th, 2014.

Diners will be able to pair their sauerkraut with an assortment of smoked and fresh sausages, kassler, bacons and more.

About Choucroute
Choucroute (or sürkrüt in Alsatian) is usually prepared in the fall after the cabbage harvest. It’s pronounced shoo croot; chou is the French word for cabbage and croute is the Alsatian pronunciation (spelled using French rules) for cabbage. The fermentation process takes at least 4 weeks and can go much longer. And Oyama continues the traditional preparation using white wine to cook the cabbage. Afterwards the dish itself is made with sausage, different cuts of smoked pork, sometimes potatoes and traditionally uses Riesling wine.
