The Big Pond US-German Listening Series #26: No Restraint – Berger Cookies and the City of Baltimore

In cooperation with American and German radio producers and broadcasters the Goethe-Institut USA produces roughly 50 radio features for a program titled The Big Pond. A US-German Listening Series. Features are being broadcasted nation-wide on a weekly basis. All are available for free download in podcast format.
In this episode: Berger Cookies are like the city of Baltimore. They are down-to-earth, charming, and show absolutely no restraint. The amount of fudge on these slim vanilla wafers shocks and delights all who try the cookie for the first time. Over 200 years ago, German immigrant Henry Berger opened a bakery in East Baltimore and since that day, Berger Cookies have been handmade in the city of Baltimore. Producer Katie Marquette interviews local Baltimoreans about what the cookie means to them, visits the Berger Bakery, and discusses proper tasting technique with a self-proclaimed Berger aficionado.
