Like many immigrant descended 1st or 2nd generation Americans, I grew up eating dishes that existed in a kind of "ethnic food time warp"--the ethnic foods and recipes that my grandparents knew and brought with them when they left their countries of origin. So it was the German recipes of the mid-1920s that my Oma passed on to my mother, and my mother to us.Thus, I can verify that some of the recipes in this cookbook are classic, old German recipes. Whether or not the other recipes are "modern" German cooking, I'm not sure. Also, as with all ethnic cooking, many recipes passed down in families have regional variations. This cookbook lists many variations on common dishes, and I've often been able to find my grandmother's version of a dish in one of the variations listed for a particular recipe.Virtually all of the recipes for roasted, stuffed poultries (duck, chicken, goose) are the same as my grandmother made them, or have variations listed that are the same. The pork, beef (Rouladen!), and organ recipes (tongue!) are also mainly as my grandmother made them. Even the recipes I hated as a child--or still hate!-- such as Eintopf (all the vegetables you hate in one watery soup!), are here in all their authentically horrible glory.Some of the recipes in this book call for prepared packets such as the Dr. Oetker prepared mixes or packets. My grandmother used some of Dr. Oetker's prepared mixes (such as the Rote Gruetze, Vanilla Sugar, Sahnesteif). However, the overwhelming majority of the recipes -- I'd say 98-99% -- in here call for nothing but good quality meat and produce.Most or all of the traditional meat recipes and sauces (gravies made from various broths or roast drippings) have some or all ingredients in common with our German family recipes.
