    A LITTLE DISAPPOINTED

    ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS I ORDERED THIS BOOK WAS FOR A FEW SPECIFIC RECIPES. WHEN LOOKING AT THE BOOK ON-LINE AT THE INDEX, IT SHOWS SAUERBRATEN LISTED. SO I ASSUMED THAT MEANT THAT THERE WAS A RECIPE FOR IT. IT IS ONLY MENTIONED IN THE HISTORY SECTION OF THE COUNTRY, WHICH MAKES A STATEMENT SAYING THAT IS ONE OF "GERMANY'S NATIONAL DISHES. SO WHY IS THERE NO RECIPE FOR IT? SO NEEDLESS TO SAY I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED. THERE WERE HOWEVER A FEW OTHER INTERNATIONAL RECIPES
    THAT I WAS LOOKING FOR.
