"Erntedankfest" - for youth
So autumn comes. And the Russian Germans living here, as well as all other inhabitants, begin to take a crop, and we have more and more tables with autumn colors. Activists of the youth club "Seeds Morkovi" in Rheine on September 8 embodied the idea of creating a video clip "From harvest to feast". As part of the project, they developed a clip script for a German song about the harvest.
The children made a video recording of the harvesting in the garden, held a competitive master class to prepare traditional German dishes in the autumn season, tasted these dishes, and also attracted a choreographic group to perform the dance on the autumn theme. On luck, the weather on the day of filming was beautiful - the sun was happy with the crew! The guys with great pleasure explored the real garden, pompous with the harvest, and demonstrated to the camera the collection of cucumbers, tomatoes and strawberries.
After this, young people gathered at the Center for Russian-German Culture, which wished to pass a master class on the preparation of German dishes. Culinary battles began with a test of knowledge of recipes for German dishes. The guys could thus get acquainted with the new dishes for them, and also to find out what, for example, the classic potato salad differs from its Swabian variant. After such a warm-up, real chef's battles took place - whose team would better cook and decorate their dish from the autumn gifts.
Three dishes were prepared for the finish: a classic German potato salad, stuffed tomatoes in German and sandwiches with eggs in German. All dishes were tasted during a coffee break. And with the help of the popular vote, the best chefs in each team were selected, their assistants for the most laborious work and decorators. The winners were awarded with gifts in the form of self-study books, German phrase books and notebooks for writing German words.
Danil Verkhovsky expressed his opinion: "I love such events - they are very united! Thank you!".

Sergei Ryder: "It was great, fun, tasty, informative and interesting!"
What is an old holiday that is passed down from generation to generation. It is very nice to know and be aware.
Here on such note the action ended and the most laborious work on editing the video clip was left. Yes! Work unites, and the feast adds positive emotions! At the same time, new knowledge increases the interest in such activities.
