A short history on the Hot dog
While it may have been called an American favorite. It wasn’t always an ‘all America’ thing. Sausages have been a dish that has been deeply rooted in their history, easily found at butcher shops, these are also found and eaten from home, to festivals, street fairs and beer gardens. German sausages like the frankfurter , pork based, beef based, liver based, and many more versions and inventions of these meaty deliciousness traveled from Germany to the United States. The German hot dog arriving in 1800’s on American roots. The hot dogs were then blended with both culinary cultures and made into the ‘all beef hot dog’, which was rooted, from Jewish American butchers. Who due to Kosher restrictions did not use pork for their hot dog meat filling blend. Then started the hot dog’s path to being one of the most beloved snacks of all time. Starting with New York City Hot dog carts, fitting for people on the go and are always in hurry, needing to eat while traveling to their next destination without worrying about crumbs or find an easy way to travel with.
Enamored by the idea of food you can eat on the streets, the German snack was first seen sold in around the 1840’s and became even more prevalent in the 1860’s. When the hot dog got its first break, it was at Coney Island by a Brooklyn entrepreneurial baker called Charles Feltman who sold the hot dogs in a pie cart. Coney island then became the spot where people would go fro recreation and became popular there, similarly the bun that held the hot dog was created by a partnership Feltman had with a restaurant and hotel in around 1873. And when the hot dog boom came and Coney Island turned into the epicenter of summer fun, the hot dog became a snack that just came to be and was suddenly beloved by many Americans, and soon because of the food’s popularity, came to be sold around the world.
