An oldie but a goodie. I lived in Germany for three years and brought back with me a lot of fantastic recipes. I love German food especially from the south of Germany. I have a lot of German cookbooks, but this one has been with me for many years so it has to be on my list.

A totally authentic German cookbook. Every recipe was tested in Mimi’s kitchen during a solid year of research. In her 90’s, Sheraton was the first female restaurant critic at the New York Times in 1975.
