Invitation to Dine: Recipes from My Personal Collection

Overview

Although the recipes in INVITATION TO DINE come from the collection of the First Lady of the German Federal Republic, they are not the difficult and fancy dishes one might expect from such a source. Rather, these are recipes that have been handed down through Christiane Herzog's family—from one of her great-grandmothers, both her grandmothers, her mother-in-law, and other relatives.

Overview

Although the recipes in INVITATION TO DINE come from the collection of the First Lady of the German Federal Republic, they are not the difficult and fancy dishes one might expect from such a source. Rather, these are recipes that have been handed down through Christiane Herzog's family—from one of her great-grandmothers, both her grandmothers, her mother-in-law, and other relatives. And they represent the traditional kinds of dishes eaten from day to day in what may now be seen as simpler times. As a result, readers will find in these pages many easy-to-prepare, inexpensive, and one-pot meals, which, when accompanied by a simple salad, comprised daily family fare—and that still make wonderful family dinners today.

Because she is herself an accomplished cook, Christiane Herzog has not only adapted these recipes to incorporate modern ingredients and methods, she has also transformed them with her own ideas and imagination to create a tasty and tempting selection of dishes to serve both family and guests. From an elegant Leg of Lamb in a Mustard Crust to a homey Stuffed Roast Chicken, from dumplings to mashed potatoes, and from yeast cake to apple strudel, there is something here to delight every palate and to suit every occasion.
