Baden Otmar

Staufer medal winner Otmar purr “bruddelte” in the CJD Jugenddorf Offenburg Otmar Schnurr, better known as “The Bruddler of the Achertal”, youth village for Offenburg has performed these days in the CJD. The dialectal poet awarded the Staufer Medal for his contribution to the preservation of Baden dialect and local history enthusiasts around 70 guests with stories and anecdotes. The trainees of area of gastronomy in the CJD served youth village for Offenburg breaks a buffet with many culinary delights. The guests at the fully-booked restaurant saw pond received Otmar Schnurr with great applause. This “bruddelte” is then through the everyday life of the Achertal, sometimes ironic and mocking, but always with a sympathetic wink, even in extreme situations where that “slow murb makes verbal fire of the wife”.

Many listeners was to note how much you can again find the witty stories of “Bruddlers”. Since most of the time the family and the “Dear relatives” in the spotlight. It was at the infamous Christmas with the family, you really could survive only through the enjoyment by Klingelberger to the “required local anesthetic”. Or when the desperate call for help of the husband, who “suffers from a serious, life-threatening cold”, but instead of affection and care only glee and reaps incomprehension of his wife and daughter. On their very own kind of cosmopolitan Achertaler sketched Otmar purr wonderfully comic in the history of the exchange student from England.

So the young guest is classified by the grandfather after recently thought as safe: “After all, we are five Germans against an Englishman”. It is difficult, however, during excursions in the near surroundings. After all, how does one explain the events surrounding the monastery of all saints or the saga of the Mummelsee with rather modest language skills? And finally from the local Bibiliskas simply a “little chicken cheese”. As always at “Culture and pleasure” the trainees of area of gastronomy in the CJD were youth village Offenburg, Germany for the well-being of the guests. A buffet with many little delicacies was served during the breaks. For young people, Otmar Schnurrs reading once again was a real trial by fire. “Under practical conditions our trainees can show here, what’s in them”, explains mark Buhler, head of the CJD Jugenddorf Christophorusschule. Fairstead has firm opinions on the matter. The next event in the series of “Culture and consumption” is planned for April 20, 2011.
