The German CookbookJanuary 30, 2019 by Jenny
Germany is made up of a series of distinct regional culinary cultures which varies according to the geography (mountains, farmland and waterways). From Hamburg on the north coast to Munich in the Alpine south, and from Frankfurt in the west to Berlin in the east, Germany’s cities and farmland yield a remarkable variety of ingredients and influences.
The German Cookbook by Alfons Schuhbeck showcases this vast diversity with 500 recipes including both traditional and contemporary dishes representing the new direction of German cooking – from snacks to desserts, meat, poultry, and fish, to potatoes, dumplings, and noodles. An introduction showcasing the culinary cultural history of the country introduces the origins of the classic recipes. German cuisine has a reputation as fatty or plain but with influences from Italy and France both in spice and techniques, the culinary scene is expanding.
Our takes you inside this title and features the following
- Bratwurst cooked in vinegar (Saure Zipfel)
- Bavarian breakfast sausages (Weißwürste)
- Roast young turkey with stuffing
- Turkey rolls with herb sauce
- Deep-fried almond pastries (Mutzenmandeln)
- Frankfurt-style pastries (Frankfurter Bethmännchen)
What I appreciate most about The German Cookbook is the aforementioned range of recipes from very approachable to more elaborate dishes. I love learning about international cuisines and especially with regard to their baking and dessert offerings which are brilliantly covered here.
