The Flour is Different – Das Mehl ist anders – German Recipes and Customs
Whether you are looking for a recipe for potato pancakes, the way Oma made them, Christstollen or a classic Sauerbraten, this book has it all. Written by Trudy Gilgenast, a former professor of German at the University of Delaware, “The Flour is Different” is not only a wonderful collection of traditional German recipes for the American kitchen, but also a delightful anthology of customs and traditions ordered by the seasons and festivities of the calendar year. Starting with New Year’s Eve and New Year’s (Feuerzangebowle, anyone?) and hearty foods for cold winter days, readers make their way through Easter and springtime with sweet delights; as summer approaches Trudy introduces her readers to lighter foods and salads. If you enjoy German cuisine, this book is a must-buy. Get your copy while supplies last.
