German cooking and cuisine

German Cuisine
The New German Cookbook: More Than 230 Contemporary and Traditional Recipes, by Jean Anderson, Hedy Wurz, 416 p. (1993)
REVIEW: Squashing stereotypes is one mission here, especially the myth of Germany as the "capital of cabbage." Another goal? To provide an authoritative yet up-to-date reference blending the best of the country's old and new cuisines. Both Anderson and Wurz are well suited to these two tasks, the former as a prolific and well-known cookbook author (Doubleday Cookbook, among many others), the latter as a representative of the German national tourist office. In fact, part one is almost as important as the more than 300 recipes; it's a quick but panoramic overview of the region's history and its wines and beers, accompanied by a glossary. The rest of the book yields many gastronomic surprises, including tiny potato pancakes with smoked salmon, asparagus rice soup, braised duck with turnips, rice cakes, leek tarts, and poppy seed ice cream. Plus, those readers seeking sauerkraut and schnitzel will not be disappointed. Review by Barbara Jacobs
