Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Barbara L. Talcroft
This title, a part of the "Festive Foods!" series, focuses on Germany's cuisine for special occasions, from family celebrations like birthdays and Christmas to national festivals like Karneval, Silvester (New Year's Eve), and Munich's Oktoberfest. First come two pages of "Let's Start Cooking" with a guide to the recipes and tips on basics. There are also brief overviews of Germany's geography, food grown there, and holiday and mealtime customs. Most important are the recipes, each introduced by an enthusiastic young chef and explained in detail with color photos of the steps. (Beginning cooks are warned with a red box when they will need some adult help.) Meat dishes include sauerbraten, False Hare (with an egg surprise), and sausages with sauerkraut. Desserts may be most popular: Christmas stollen, Mutzenmandeln (deep-fried almond cookies), plum cake, and Rote Grutze (Germans tend to smile enigmatically when this dish is mentioned). Some ingredients may be hard to find; for example, golden syrup (English), redcurrants, flounder (though other white fish may be substituted), juniper berries, and allspice berries. For two dishes gingerbread pieces are required; would cooks have to bake gingerbread first? Despite such possible roadblocks, the book is full of interesting information about Germans and their food. And who could resist imitating the popular ritual of Kaffee (with hot chocolate for kids) und Kuchen (cake, cookies, or fruit tarts), consumed most afternoons and always on birthdays? A helpful glossary, bibliography, and an index are included. Reviewer: Barbara L. Talcroft
