If you like a little German bratwurst with kraut, you’ll be in for a treat at the festival! Mike and Mary Jo Buzard are excited to lead the Germany booth this year. The couple met when Mike was stationed in Stuttgart and they have many fond memories of their time spent in Germany.
The Buzards have been been members of St. Ann Church since 1999. Longtime parishioners will remember that Mike started the St. Ann Fall Festival, which was the “original” parish event that lead up to our International Food Festival.
After many years of leading the festival parking team, Mike decided to do a food booth, and Germany was a logical choice–his Grandma Spaight would be proud! They will be serving Bratwurst, Apple Sauerkraut and Pretzels. The kraut is Mary Jo’s recipe, which is made with apples and caraway seeds, giving it a delicious, sweet taste.
If any “cooks” out there would like to join the German team, they would be happy to have a few more helpers. Please email Mike at firstname.lastname@example.org.
