Classic German Baking: The Very Best Recipes for Traditional Favorites, from Pfeffernusse to Streuselkuchen by Luisa Weiss
Classic German Baking: The Very Best Recipes for Traditional Favorites, from Pfeffernusse to Streuselkuchen by Luisa Weiss is a new cookbook dedicated to baking and desserts. This authentic cookbook features actual German recipes: Friesentorte (Plum Cream Torte), Butterkuchen (Butter Almond Cake), Schwarz- Weiss Geback (Checkerboard cookies) and many more. The book features sections for cookies, cakes, yeasted cakes, Tortes, breads and even Christmas. The last section is on the very basics- Quark (Sour Fresh Cheese), Streusel and more foundation recipes. This comprehensive volume in perfect for every level of baking- from the beginner to the advanced chef. This beautiful hard cover volume features thick sturdy pages, and detailed quality photographs. Background information and commentary is provided for all the recipes as well. I am giving this cookbook to my teenager who is in her third year of German language class- as she also enjoys baking as well. This cookbook will transport the reader directly to Germany! As a blogger I received a copy of this book published by Ten Speed Press for the purpose of writing this review.
