Chancellor Helmut Kohl and his wife, Hannelore, invite us to join them on a remarkable food tour of Germany - from the Baltic coast to the Alps to the Lower Rhine. More than three hundred recipes for regional specialties are presented with hundreds of full-color photographs illustrating the tempting dishes.
Chancellor Kohl introduces each chapter with a discussion of the particular region; his extensive knowledge of each area's history is enriched by vignettes from his travels, childhood memories, and personal anecdotes. Alfons Schuhbeck, an award-winning chef, collaborates with Chancellor Kohl and his wife to present the best-loved foods of Germany.
This unusual team - a master chef, an accomplished amateur cook, and a politician who is a noted authority on regional German food - brings together a wide range of talents. They pass along the local secrets of simple German cooking with recipes that have been handed down through many generations. Easy-to-follow instructions are given for such traditional dishes as potato pancakes, cabbage rouladen, braised veal, and fruit puddings. Each chapter includes a section of kitchen know-how with advice about how to buy top-quality meat, how to select fresh vegetables, how to prepare a hearty stew, and how to create unusual table settings.
