5 curious facts about hot dogs

Gastronomy tips

Who has never eaten a hot dog? Did you know that the strictest defenders of this dish believe it is a sin to grill the sausage instead of boiling it?

Here are some anecdotes:

1- EUROPEAN ORIGIN:
Although the hot dog is a symbol of American culture, it was already made in different parts of Europe before being taken to the United States by European emigrants in the mid-eighteenth century.

2- BASEBALL:
It appears that the German butcher Charles Feltman was the first to sell them on the beaches of Coney Island (New York) in 1867. Later, they became very popular when they were sold at American baseball matches.

3- DACHSHUND WHAT?
During a New York Giants game, a sports journalist heard a hot dog seller saying: ''They're red hot! Get your 'dachshund' sausages while they're hot'' (dachshund is the German word for the sausage dog breed). The journalist was so struck by the idea that he came up with an illustration of a "dachshund" in a bun, which gave the idea of the "hot dog".

4- BOILED SAUSAGE:
The hot dog should always be cooked in boiling water, never fried or using any other method. In many cases, the option of frying or barbecuing is considered an offence by purists.

5- CULTURAL ICON:
Posters, movies, songs... The hot dog has been the star of countless cultural events. Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein dedicated several illustrations to it in the 1950s, and in 1979 the British group, Led Zeppelin, wrote the song "Hot Dog".
