This modern German-Californian cookbook from longtime Los Angeles chef and restaurateur Hans Röckenwagner features sections on bread-making (yes, pretzel bread!), holiday treats, and bar snacks, along with the most popular recipes from his several Los Angeles restaurants, including 3 Square Cafe on famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Cafe Röckenwagner in Brentwood.

From fresh, light salads inspired by the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market, where Röckenwagner shops weekly, to such hearty German classics as spätzle and schnitzel, to the breads and baked goods for which he is renowned, Das Cookbook shares all of Röckenwagner’s best recipes, all created, tested, and perfected for the home cook.
