Modern German Food by Roz Denny
Few nations enjoy their food quite as much as the Germans, but German cooks have learnt the lesson of recent years; even the most traditional dishes are now made in a lighter, fresher style. And Germans know a thing or two about freshness; their farmers and retailers have long been at the forefront of the organic revolution. It is a style of cooking which fits in perfectly with current trends for simple, homely dishes with robust flavours. There are plenty of new twists on traditional recipes; a crusty pork loin with sauerkraut and rhubarb, for instance, or a spicy bread and butter pudding made with stollen. As well as a wealth of recipe photographs, there are also some scene-setting shots of German festivals, shops and street cafes that help place the recipes in the context of German culture.
