Overview

"The cookery of the Alpine countries, a historically complex area comprising seven nations, is as fascinating to explore as it is to savor. This collection of distinguished cuisines contains a wealth of culinary treasures carefully evolved over the centuries by creative cooks. Indeed, the kitchens of these countries have produced cherished delicacies as well as flavorful, hearty dishes that have an enduring appeal."

—-from the author's introduction

A majestic mountain system in south-central Europe, the Alps form an arc spanning almost 750 miles from the Mediterranean Sea through northern Italy and southeast France, Switzerland, southern Germany, and Austria and into the northwest part of the Balkan Peninsula. Cuisines of the Alps takes a culinary tour through the region, with stops in Northern Italy for risotto a la Milanese and osso buco; in Austrian for goulash and linzer torte; for dumplings in Bavaria; raclette in Switzerland; French trout au bleu, and in Slovenia for eggplant stew and walnut cake, among many other delights. Cuisines of the Alps will enhance your knowledge of the region's cookery, bringing the snow-capped peaks, with their robust, homey dishes into your kitchen.
