The title is totally misleading. I bought this cookbook to learn true German cooking. "Five generations of family recipes" the title said...but the true German recipes are extremely few and far between. Boston Creme Pie, chicken parm, eggplant parm, tiramisu, french fries, chinese barbeque spare ribs and flounder au gratin to name a few are NOT German.I opened the package, leafed through the book and immediately logged on to and printed out a UPS return label.
Many of the recipes are interesting. I decided to bake a cake-I chose the Coffee Cake recipe. I found it difficult to determine what ingredients belonged to the streusel topping and what ingredients belonged to the batter. Appears as though some of these recipes may have been formatted in error. I could not rely on this recipe and others with a similar issue in this book. This odd display showed up on the Kindle Fire, the iPad, and the MacAir. Unfortunately this problem renders the book useless to me. Takes too long to figure it all out and wastes my time. I ended up locating a similar recipe for a German Coffee Cake with Streusel on the internet. When I find a recipe I might like in this book - and it happens to have the lay-out issue. Hopefully I will find a comparable recipe on the Internet.German Cooking: Five Generations of Family Recipes
It does not convert well to kindle. All the information in the front of the book should be part of the index. This was very annoying to me because I already knew most of the helpful hints and some of it is actually wrong. There are some recipes that seem to be German and even though Mrs. Hinsch does say they are from other areas near Germany, there seems to be as many "American" recipes. As I am third generation American I was hoping for something more authentic. Just like Mrs. Hinsch's family most of my family recipes have been Americanized. Glad I didn't pay much.
This cookbook contains over 600 recipes and many, many hints. Has a list of cheeses that explain the uses of the cheese, area of origin and taste. Has a list of salt substitutes along with herb and spice substitutes and uses.I am very proud of this book, but I need to warn readers that the kindle version becomes unreadable. (didn't realize that publisher would use identical format as for book).Hope you read it and enjoy it!Icemom13
I have had this cookbook for over a year now. I come from German descent and many of these recipes are similar to the ones that were past down to me. They remind me of family gatherings, grandmas cooking and even the genuine German Deli's from New York! Who of German descent doesn't know someone that either worked in or owned a Deli during the 60s? Did you ever have herring salad? It's not what you might think and that's a personal favorite! Don't let the ingredients fool you - just try it -- you'll be surprised and love it! If you like German food then this is the book for you. It contains easy to follow recipes and has many of the dishes that both my grandmothers and mother made when I was a kid!
I purchased the Kindle version of German Cooking and returned it for a refund less than an hour later. The ingredients were all scrambled up. The recipe would begin with the typical list of ingredients, but if an ingredient took more than a line it wouldn't wrap correctly onto the next line. Instead it mixed into the next ingredients making it hard to tell what the actual ingredient was let alone the correct measurement. What a bummer! Guess I'll have to purchase the actual book. A real disappointment with my new kindle.
I like German cooking so I wanted to try this Book and it has lots of Recipes that I do like and will useI made Marillen Knoedel yesterday my grandsons loved themvery pleased ...Sieglinde
The recipes are traditional, and varied. Yummy, yummy. These are the German recipes I grew up with. For this book, it would probably help if you have a little cooking and baking experience. The book could have used an editor. There are no pictures. There is an index divided into sections. I recommend this cookbook for all who love to cook and bake desserts, even some Italian cakes, cookies. There's also a section for spiked drinks. So even with flaws this is a recommended book.
