German Gymnasium

The famous German Gymnasium sits on the junction between Kings Cross and St Pancras International, at 1 King’s Boulevard in London. Part of London’s D&D restaurant group, German Gymnasium specialises in making warming “comfort food” from Germany. Chef Bjoern’s tasty dishes taste fantastic and always look great on the plate.

Perfect Sausage Preparation

Chef Bjoern tells us: “In Germany most sausages are fully cooked before they come to the shop. The best way to reheat them is to either pop them in the oven for a couple of minutes, so they get a nice temperature at their core. Or, when you’re in a restaurant, you heat them in a lightly salted water and then pop them on a really hot chargrill to give them that nice crispy char around the sausage. But be careful – don’t go too hot, because the sausage might pop!”

Red Cabbage Prep

  • Heat up your red cabbage in a pan on a low heat, add the gravy to the mix and stir. Cook until the cabbage has a thick consistency.

Chargrilled Apple

  • Thinly slice your apple. Use 2 slices per burger, lightly char grill each slice on both sides.

Venison, Wild Boar and Pork Bratwurst

  • Heat your Venison, Wild Boar & Pork Bratwurst in your oven for 5 minutes (10 minutes from frozen) until hot through. Alternatively, for restaurant kitchens, heat in a bain-marie (or water bath with hot water, not boiling) until warmed through. Take your pre-warmed sausages and place on the char-grill for a couple of minutes, turning once, until both sides are nicely charred. Slice the venison sausage in small chunks ready to be plated.


  • Cook your Lamb Weston Potato Wedges in your fryer until crispy and brown.

Plating Up & Additional Toppings

  • Take your Pretzel bun, layer with the red cabbage and  apple slices, add your chopped Venison sausages. Add a generous layer of the Mustard snack sauce followed by a dollop of Lingonberry. Sprinkle on some crispy onions and garnish with red vein sorrel. Add to the plate with the potato wedges. Serve and/or enjoy!
