My Newest Book, “A Travel for Taste: Germany”, is Now Available for Sale!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American peeps! And just in time for Black Friday, my newest book is available for sale online! I’m hoping that it will save you a shopping trip or two since you can buy it with a couple of clicks.

Here’s what it looks like on the outside:

Isn’t it handsome?? I’m so proud of it. In addition to the recipes and cooking tips, it’s filled with travel stories, culture and history I’ve come to know by living in Bavaria. Plus I’ve got many of my photos in there, too. I especially dig the photo of the potatoes on the back cover (pun intended).

Click here to buy it on Amazon. It’s available in print and Kindle editions. It’s also available worldwide on other Amazon sites.

I’m so thrilled to have this book finished and out there for you! Several recipes in the book have appeared on this blog, but now they have updated stories and photos with them. I’ve done everything I can think of to convert the recipes into something doable and easy for a home cook in the USA to accomplish with confidence. Metric measurements have been converted to US units and I photographed the dishes to make sure you know what to expect in your results. I provide the German names of the dishes and other phrases, too, in case you’re into that.

One of the best features of the book is that I describe the culture of the places and faces where I got the recipes. So, it’s a good read, even if you aren’t into cooking. There is information about eating out at restaurants in Germany, including beer gardens; the history and culture of Bavaria and its subset of geography, Franconia; and the final word on what a real Wiener Schnitzel really is (hint: not a hot dog from a fast food chain). You can see pictures of Franconian wine bottles, designed so that they wouldn’t roll down the hill in a field, and the German wine glasses called Römer after the Romans who settled the area and brought the grapevine to Germany.
Here’s part of the Table of Contents:

And the page describing exactly what kind of food you find in Bavaria:

Here’s the page with information about the famous Franconian Easter Fountains:

As you can see, there’s just so much more than cooking instructions! I really hope you get yourself and loved ones a copy of this book. It’s definitely a labor of love and one that I hope benefits many more people than just me. So get your copies now – and thanks!

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. And today I am thankful that you are the greatest blog audience ever!
