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!”

Spicy Pulled Pork

Add the pulled pork to a saucepan to heat up, heat for a couple of minutes. Once the pulled pork has been cooking add in the curry ketchup. Stir until fully mixed. Leave cooking for another 5 minutes until the pulled pork has been heated through. If cooking from frozen cook for double the amount of time.
