Overview
German baking has influenced baking traditions around the world for generations and is a source of great nostalgia for those of German and Central European heritage. Yet the very best recipes for Germany's cookies, cakes, tortes, and breads, passed down through generations, have never before been collected and perfected for contemporary American home bakers. Enter Luisa Weiss, the Berlin-based creator of the adored Wednesday Chef blog and self-taught ambassador of the German baking canon.
From her cheerful Berlin kitchen, Weiss shares more than 100 rigorously researched and tested recipes, gathered from expert bakers, friends, family, and time-honored sources throughout Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. Whether you're in the mood for the simple yet emblematic Streuselkuchen, crisp and flaky Strudel, or classic breakfast Brotchen, every recipe you're looking for is here, along with detailed advice to ensure success plus delightful storytelling about the origins, meaning, and rituals behind the recipes. Paired with more than 100 photographs of Berlin and delectable baked goods, such as Elisenlebkuchen, Marmorierter Mohnkuchen, and Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte, this book will encourage home bakers of all skill levels to delve into the charm of Germany's rich baking tradition.

Berlin-born food writer Weiss (My Berlin Kitchen) collects masterpieces of time-tested recipes to create this traditional classic that, like her lebkuchen (old-fashioned German gingerbread), is bound to stand the test of time and taste. Dividing the recipes into seven sections, Weiss highlights the best of German baking and reveals the culture behind each recipe. Cakes and cookies are spotlighted, with five sections dedicated to both of them. The rich, soft, and gluten-free mandelhörnchen (chocolate-dipped almond crescents) to bienstich (honey almond cake), will never make you doubt the exquisite quality of yeasted cakes. The pantry ingredients section is a must-read, providing such helpful information as the difference between high-fat European-style butter and American butter and the difference between fresh, instant, and active dry yeast. Weiss also provides a section on German baking basics, giving recipes for necessities such as marzipanroh­masse (almond paste) and vanillezuker (vanilla sugar). For those without easy access to European grocery stores, Weiss also provides online resources to locate specialty items, ensuring the classical quality of German baking in everyone’s homes. Collected from various places and people—whether it’s a cookbook or from her German assistant—this cookbook presents a beautiful piece of German tradition. Agent: Brettne Bloom, the Book Group.
