Who is Betty BBQ? Home is colorful - the documentation

Betty BBQ can do a lot, including High German. But the Alemannic dialect is and will remain the language of your homeland.

And she would like to share that with everyone – Betty BBQ, the Black Forest Drag Queen: authentic through and through!

It is hard to believe but unfortunately true: 97% of the German population cannot speak proper Alemannic. In order to close this elementary gap in education, the language app developers Jicki and Betty BBQ have created a small “Baden language course for beginners” (in the actual sense, of course, “Alemannic course”) for you.

Betty BBQ without a Bollenhut? Hardly conceivable!

The Schwarzälder landmark has crowned the heads of the Black Forest for over 225 years. In the SWR TV report, Betty BBQ, among others, congratulates on this anniversary.

The Bollenhut is the symbol of the Black Forest. Together with ham, cherry cake and a cuckoo clock, it forms a kind of brand quartet for the Black Forest. A round thing. The Bollenhut was first mentioned in writing 225 years ago. “The usual decorations of red and black color are to be sewn on.” This was the ducal instruction in 1797 and because it says “usual” one must assume that the Bollenhut is even older. One thing is certain: the Bollenhut has changed a lot. First they were just small Bollen, then they got bigger and bigger and now a Bollenhut weighs around two kilograms. As a symbol of the Black Forest, it is irreplaceable.

At times the image of the Bollenhut was outdated, but because it is a powerful symbol of home for artists and photographers, it is more present than ever. When Bollen hats meet piercings and tattoos in famous photos, the contrast between the past and the present becomes visible. A straw hat with 11 visible bolls of wool. Although it is rarely worn on the head today, the traditional motif makes the cash registers in souvenir shops ring. The Bollenhut stands for the entire Black Forest – a traditional costume relic that is still lived, maintained and successfully marketed today.
