It’s that time of the year again! An integral part of Bavarian culture dating back to the 1800s, Oktoberfest has since travelled the world, being celebrated across the world with much fanfare and jubilation. While the very word calls to mind a seemingly endless supply of craft beers, music and games, no Oktoberfest would be complete without a selection of meaty offerings that go hand-in-hand with the drink and festivities. From roast chicken to sauerkraut and sausages, here’s a list of must-haves for your Oktoberfest festivities!

Traditionally, Oktoberfest celebrations would see whole chickens spit-roasted for a golden-brown, crispy dinnertime delight. While most of us cannot boast an outdoor spit with which to prepare a truly traditional feast, a simple rotisserie set up achieves much the same effect.
