German Recipes


German cuisine has a reputation for offering simply cooked (often roasted) dishes, copious red meat, sausages, and large, sometimes excessively large, portions. While there is some truth in this stereotype - pork and beef are the most popular meats in Germany, there are 1,500 types of sausages in Germany, and Germans do, on average, consume a surprisingly large amount of red meat each year - it should be remembered that this is not the whole truth. There are many interesting German dishes, and each region of the country has its own unique contributions to the culinary arts.

Many German dishes are hearty satisfying meals, and even breakfast (German: frühstück) may include meats (such as ham, salted meats such as salami, or meat spreads such as leberwurst), Traditionally, the main meal of the day is lunch (German: mittagessen), but increasingly modern work habits are pushing Germans people towards lighter lunches and eating their main meal with their family for dinner (German: abendessen).

Some popular German dishes include:
  • Klöße - Dumplings made from potato or dried bread, with milk and egg yolks. This dish is usually known as "knödel" or "knödeln" in Bavaria and Austria.

  • Sauerkraut - Fermented chopped cabbage.

  • Spätzle - The German version of noodles. Spätzle may be used as a side dish with meat, mixed with grated cheese and fried onions and fried or baked ("kässpätzle"), mixed with lentils and frankfurter-style sausages ("linsen, spätzle und saitenwürstle"), mixed with sauerkraut, onions and butter ("krautspätzle"), or used as an ingredient in other dishes, especially stews (for example, "gaisburger marsch").

  • Eisbein - Braised leg of pork, served with gravy, klöße and sauerkraut. In Berlin, it is cooked with pureed peas.

  • Labskaus (also known as "lapskaus") - A dish made with corned beef, beetroot, onion, potatoes, and herring or ham. The meat is boiled in broth, and then minced with the other ingredients. This mixture is then fried in lard. Labkaus is usually served with rollmops (pickled herring fillets) as a side dish.

  • Saumagen - Pork or beef, carrots and onions, with various spices and flavorings, cooked in a sow's stomach ("saumagen" is German for "sow's stomach"). The result is a dish somewhat similar to the Scottish dish, haggis. The stomach itself is not usually eaten and simply serves as a casing - typically the meal is served with mashed potatoes and sauerkraut as accompaniments.

  • Schwenker - Pork steaks, marinated in onions and spices, and then grilled, traditionally over a wood fire.

  • Hasenpfeffer - A sour stew made from marinated rabbit. The sourness comes from wine or vinegar used in the recipe.

  • Blood sausage (German: blutwurst) - Often made from fatty pork meat, but in the Rhineland, horse meat is traditional. A variant known as "zungenwurst" is a pork blood sausage with chunks of pickled pig's tongue added.

  • Bratwurst - A sausage made from pork, beef or veal. Bratwurst is normally served mustard and ketchup. It may also be cut into slices, coated with a curry sauce, and served as "currywurst",

  • Frankfurter sausage - A smoked pork sausage, eaten hot with bread and mustard. While it is undoubtedly the inspiration for the American "frankfurter" sausage eaten in hot dogs, it is not the same.

  • Weißwürste - White sausages made from pork fat. This dish originates in Munich (German: München), and is traditionally eaten in a mid-morning meal known as "second breakfast" (German: Zweites Frühstück).

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.

Product Description:
Now in a celebratory fiftieth anniversary edition, The German Cookbook is the definitive authority on German cuisine, from delicious soups and entrees to breads, desserts, and the greatest baking specialties in the world. In addition to easy-to-follow recipes, renowned food writer Mimi Sheraton also includes recommendations for restaurants at home and abroad, as well as tips on ordering traditional fare.
 
Historically, German influence on the American diet, from hamburgers and frankfurters to jelly doughnuts and cakes, has been enormous. But, as the author writes in a brand-new Preface, “Americans have begun to realize that Austrian and German cooks have long been adept at preparing foods that are newly fashionable here, whether for reasons of health, seasonality, economy or just pure pleasure.” Many standards foreshadowed the precepts of new cooking, such as pickling, and combining sweet with savory. Alongside old Bavarian favorites, The German Cookbook includes recipes for nose-to-tail pork, wild game, and organ meats; hearty root vegetables and the entire cabbage family; main-course soups and one-pot meals; whole-grain country breads and luscious chocolate confections; and lesser-known dishes worthy of rediscovery, particularly the elegant seafood of Hamburg.
 
Since Mimi Sheraton first began her research more than fifty years ago, she has traveled extensively throughout Germany, returning with one authentic recipe after another to test in her own kitchen. Today, The German Cookbook is a classic in its field, a testament to a lifetime of spectacular meals and gustatory dedication. So Prosit and gut essen: cheers and good eating!
