The Wurst! : The Very Best of German Food
A book celebrating all the greats of German cuisine--a food culture as rich as any other in Europe. For too long it's been a cuisine undervalued against those other European stalwarts--French and Italian. It is time to put German food into the spotlight! Classic German food is ridiculously delicious and super easy to prepare--from slow-cooked roasts to hearty salads, tasty snacks, enriched breads, and moreish desserts--it has it all. Hot dogs, burgers, pretzels, rye bread, and beer are just some of the hugely popular foods that had their origins in Germany. Even if you think you have no knowledge of German food, you would be surprised how influential this cuisine has been throughout history.
