Der Zwiebelzopf “The humble onion”

I’ve got to explain shortly, the choice of this unusual subject. The “humble onion” is the star of the Onion market, held every year in the historical center of Weimar. Usually it consists of four rows of colored Onion that are bound and plaited together in the traditional way and decorated with dried flowers of yellow, white or lilac. It is a tradition that is rooted in the Weimarian History. Goethe praised the effect on wellness and decorate every year in autumn his desk and house with the recently purchased “humble onion”.

Since I was a Student in Weimar I can not, without hanging a fresh “humble onion” in our kitchen every octobre.
