Eat Smart in Germany
How to Decipher the Menu, Know the Market
Foods & Embark on a Tasting Adventure
Finalist, ForeWord Book of the Year, Travel Guides
Savor the many flavors of Germany to better understand culture, traditions, and heritage.
Michelin-rated restaurants and street-vendor fare earn equal time in the newest release of the internationally acclaimed Eat Smart culinary guidebook series. That means exploring the currywurst and doner kebabs of Berlin, then spicy crepes with venison and cherries at the Hotel Sackmann in the Black Forest.
Authentic German dining begins with sausage, rouladen, potato salad, gingerbread, and strudel—but so much more defines and influences the cuisine. Consider the verve with which Kiel residents devour sprats (young herring) near the Baltic and North seas. Or the pride that people in the village of Bautzen take in serving a centuries-old recipe for Sorbian soup.
Eat Smart in Germany connects menus and markets to geography, history, and regional pride. In the book are these practical and fun features:
- dozens of delicious recipes from chefs and other food experts that allow travelers and cookbook lovers to recreate the cuisine
- a Menu Guide that demystifies food selection, allowing visitors to order with confidence
- a Food and Flavors Guide that provides a comprehensive list of foods, spices, cooking styles, and more to assist shoppers at colorful outdoor markets
- an explanation of culinary history that covers the origins and varieties of ingredients, regional recipes, and well-known German favorites
- a translation of useful phrases that eases the challenge of shopping for food or placing an order in restaurants
- glossaries that introduce food and cooking terms in German and English.
