Simple and Effective. A German Appetiser I concocted with inspiration from a German platter I was served at the amazing Oktoberfest Festival. The locals explained the recipe to me. It is simply a mashed potato dip smothered on a piece of rye bread and doused with salt and pepper. The more salt and pepper the better (they insisted).  You will need a good quality sea salt for this one so it is not overpowering and ground black pepper works best. My version has a sliver of radish and a teeny garnish of dill.
