Bristol Food Connections Festival presents Three Dog Night at Aron’s Jewish Delicatessen.
The not-so humble hot dog is another Jewish immigrant link between the cuisine of the old world and the new.
We’ve partnered with Gloucestershire charcuterie Native Breeds to bring you frankfurters made from 100% Gloucestershire beef, smoked over apple wood, seasoned with garlic and paprika all in natural casings. These are top quality dogs!
We’re doing 3 hot dogs, 3 different ways for 3 dog night and we hope you’ll join us to enjoy them washed down with some suds (or a glass or three of Hallet’s cider).
In Hungary, Austria, the USA and among British Jews these sausages are named after another German speaking city – Vienna!
This delivery van belonged to the Vienna Beef Company of Chicago, formed by Austrian and Hungarian Jewish immigrants in the 19th century.
The company is still going strong and Chicago is known for its hot dog Viennas, in the same way that NYC is known for pastrami.
In Hungary they’re known as Bécsi virsli because as everyone knows the word for Vienna in Hungarian is Bécs!
In Britain the name Viennas is used by the Jewish community to describe a smoked frankfurter sausage, like the kosher variety still produced under the Bloom’s brand name.
Tickets at £16 are available from Bristol Food Connections.
