The the Biskuitrolle (Swiss Roll, Roulade Cake) seems to stem from Austria instead of Germany, but since you find it in most German Recipe books, and I like it, I will include it here. The recipe first shows up in “Universallexikon der Kochkunst” von 1886 (Universal Encyclopedia of Cooking of 1886), so it’s not the […]

I‘m frequently asked HOW to watch German movies or German TV shows here in the US. Generally, I turn to Netflix or Amazon… maybe I slip a German DVD into my multi-region player. But that’s just a tiny percentage of the German Programming available to us here. You tube, apps and certain websites make watching […]

I love Streusel, and much of my childhood was spent devising ways to snitch Streusel off of the Apfel Kuchen/Kirsch Kuchen/ Mohn Kuchen that my mother baked for Sunday Kaffee. I also love Blatterteig (Puff Pastry), flaky, buttery, crisp… so good. So a few days ago while reading Classic German Baking by Luisa Weiss (yes, […]

My mother didn't recite Mother Goose to me when I was a child. I got the German Nursery Rhymes and songs  that she grew up with. "Alle Meine Enten", "Hoopa Hoppa Reiter", and "Backe backe Kuchen". Funny thing, when I had children, I mainly sang and clapped my way through the rhymes of my childhood. […]

Years ago I bought a cookbook called “The Flour is Different” hoping that it would help explain why following a German Recipe with American ingredients would give such different results. It’s a good cookbook, but it doesn’t really clarify the differences. Is German Flour different? I did a little more digging. Turns out “the flour […]

When I was a little girl, my Opa sent me a card that had a dried pressed edelweiss flower and a miniature hiker’s axe on it. I loved pulling back the protective cover and petting the soft fuzzy petals. For years that card sat on my bookshelf, and I would imagine the mysterious far-off mountain […]

Next to the Steinernen Brucke (Stone Bridge) in Regensburg you will find a small green building surrounded by crowds.  The Wurstkuche Regensburg has been serving up sausages to dockworkers and now tourists for hundreds of years in the same location. So, of course, while visiting Regensburg for the Christmas Markets, I could not pass up […]
