'Green sauce' festival in Frankfurt

The famous 'green sauce' will be taking centre stage in Frankfurt from 11 May 2013. This regional speciality (which according to legend was invented by Goethe's mother) is so important to the Frankfurt locals that they hold a week-long festival in its honour every year on Rossmarkt square.

In seven different shows, seven restaurateurs from the Frankfurt area will compete to create the finest green sauce of all. Every evening 400 fans of this local delicacy, which is made with seven herbs, will decide which of the seven chefs should be crowned the winner. The whole event is complemented by a varied programme of entertainment including German golden oldies, comedy, a cappella music and lots of other live acts.
