"Knuth, a classically trained chef who, with his wife Catherine, owns the German restaurant Das Kaffeehaus outside of Sydney, was raised outside Hamburg. Knuth writes that 'growing up near the sea within a close-knit farming community, my interest in produce and cooking was a natural progression.' The authors offer traditional German recipes, accompanied by wonderful photos. Readers will enjoy familiar favorites: goulash; German barley soup; a dish of lentil, bacon, and bockwurst; and cabbage and beet soup. From the sea comes cod in mustard sauce; and oven-baked trout with white-wine vinegar and leeks; and Grandma's veal stroganoff. Standout sides include comforting dishes such as braised-apple red cabbage; bacon and potato gratin; and zucchini and fresh green beans, in white wine. In all, this is an excellent introduction to an overlooked cuisine deserving of attention. (June)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
