Tammany Taste Quick Bite: Horst Pfeifer of Middendorf’s

When there’s a hint of fall in the air, it’s time to head to Middendorf’s to celebrate an Oktoberfest only Horst Pfeifer could possibly throw, complete with authentic German music, food and fun. Since opening a second Middendorf’s in Slidell, the Oktoberfest celebration has expanded to include both locations. This year’s Oktoberfest takes place from October 7th to November 13th.  The celebration happens in the Manchac swamp at the original Middendorfs on Wednesdays and Thursdays, then the party moves to the new Middendorf’s in Slidell on Fridays.

Every year, Horst’s brother Heinz travels all the way from Germany to help. Heinz is also an accordion player, so he holds forth in the dining room (where he’s often mistaken for his brother) providing the entertainment.  Together, they present an authentic taste of Oktoberfest using family recipes straight from Mama’s kitchen. Get out your lederhosen and prepare to say “Prosit” over a stein of beer. It’s time for Oktoberfest at Middendorf’s!
