Hoping for a German Cookbook Recommendation

DaisiesAndSunshine | Sep 30, 2012 03:51 PM


I am still learning a lot of the basics around cooking, but I would like to become a little more knowledgeable. My fiance remembers his grandma's German meals very fondly, so I would love to be able to recreate as many dishes as I can. Since I am a beginner, I probably need a cookbook with detailed instructions (and pictures if possible). I am okay with trying challenging dishes a long as all of the steps are outlined.

Does anyone have a good German cookbook on your book shelves that you might recommend? Are there any particular books to avoid?

Amazon lists over 500 different cookbooks on German cuisine, so I was a bit overwhelmed trying to sort through all the page results and reviews there.

I hope there is not a similar thread available somewhere, I tried searching for German+cookbooks and didn't find many results.

Thank you for any suggestions that you might have! Have a wonderful day!
