Schwarzwälder Kirschtorte

GW_BlackForest-0400Back in the day of my German O-Level, the word had such a lyrical rhythm to it, as well as being a damn fine cake.

I was recently in the German town of Triberg im Schwartz to photograph a story on the eponymous cake for GermanWings, the magazine of the budget offshoot of Lufthansa.

In contrast to the somewhat chaotic response to snowfall in Britain, in typically German efficiency all the main roads were clear and rental cars fitted with winter tyres.

‘Alles muss in Ordnung sein.’
