Avalon Dinner in Königswinter

Overnight in Königswinter

Continuing our Avalon Waterways River Cruise on the Rhine & Moselle Rivers

After returning form our
Cogwheel to Dragons Castle tour, it was time to get ready for the evening events.   As usual there was a Port Talk describing the next day's program which was followed by another spectacular German dinner.


The Chef's Recommendation for the evening was "Sauerbraten", a traditional German meal:

Braised Topside of Beef Marinated in Red Wind & Vinegar Served with Red Cabbage and Potato Dumplings.

Starters were Chicken Liver Parfait, Avalon Caesar Salad, Farfalle Pasta, and Brushette with Curd Tomato Tapenade.

The Soup selections were Veal Bouillon and Cream of Leek with Garlic Croutons.

As you can see we complemented the meal with a nice glass of wine and selection from the Dessert choices: Cheese Platter, Pancakes Filled with Rum Raisin and Hazelnut Cream and Vanilla Sauce, Salad of Dried Apricots and Plums, Yogurt Ice Cream with Berries, and Freshly Sliced Fruits. This was definitely one of our favorite meals during the cruise.

The evening concluded with the swing band "Funky Groove Band" providing entertainment in the lounge followed by Late Night Snacks.
