The German Cookbook

"...Beautifully designed, lavishly photographed, well written and pretty exhaustive too. You get a true insight into [the country's] food, with history, culture and regional recipes all mixed. My favourite culinary series."—Mail on Sunday

"[If] you're interested in digging deep-way deep-into German cuisine, then this is your encyclopedia... It's a hit parade of German cooking."—National Post

"This impressive overview of German cuisine-the type of encyclopedic cookbook that Phaidon does so well - is packed with the kind of comforting German recipes you might expect... But there are plenty of dishes that will challenge your assumptions about stereotypical German food, too."—Food52

The only comprehensive collection of German recipes - from authentic traditional dishes to contemporary cuisine

Germany is made up of a series of distinct regional culinary cultures. 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.

This authoritative book showcases this diversity, with 500 recipes including both beloved traditional cuisine 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.

These recipes have been tested for accuracy in a home kitchen, making them fully accessible to a wide range of cooking abilities. Icons indicate everything from vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free options to recipes with five ingredients or fewer and simple one-pot dishes.

The German Cookbook is the latest in Phaidon's bestselling series of authoritative cookbooks on global cuisines.
