The cuisine of Luxembourg has been heavily influenced by the food of neighbouring countries such as Germany and France. Perhaps the most well-known Luxembourg meal is ‘judd mat gaardebounen’, which is a smoked pork and broad bean casserole with a thick creamy sauce. Other favourite dishes include ‘kachkeis’ (soft cheese, melted and served with bread), ‘liewekniddelen mat sauerkraut’ (liver meatballs served with sauerkraut), ‘gromperekichelchen’ (fried potato cakes), ‘bouneschlupp’ (French bean soup), ‘ferkelsrippchen’ (grilled spareribs) and ‘quetschentaart’ (plum tart). Luxembourg is renowned for its numerous award-winning restaurants, serving traditional Luxembourgish dishes as well as a variety of international cuisines from near and far. The Place d’Armes in the main square of Luxembourg City overflows with fantastic restaurants and cafes.
The Moselle Valley white wines are highly regarded by both Luxembourgers and wine lovers in neighbouring countries. They are relatively inexpensive and include varieties such as Elbling, Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Riesling. There are a number of breweries in the country and the most popular beers are Bofferding, Diekirch, Mousel and Simon Pils. The legal drinking age is 16 in Luxembourg and drivers must maintain a blood alcohol level below 0.08%.
