Leseprobe zu "The Frankfurt Cookbook" von Evert Kornmayer; Linda White
By Petra Roth, Lord Mayor of the City of Frankfurt am Main:
The Frankfurt kitchen has often been described and praised. Even Goethe s mother, Frau Rat, referred to the fine art of cooking. I have no fear of princes, I can cook! she said spiritedly when her son visited Frankfurt in the company of the Duke of Weimar. The first books of culinary specialties of the Free Imperial City appeared more than 150 years ago. Naturally they included recipes for the best-known Frankfurt dishes such as Frankfurters, Green Sauce and the Frankfurt Crown. Of course, the culinary arts continually developed. Just as Frankfurt is a lively city where many cultures and influences meet, the Frankfurt kitchen is also extremely varied. It always has a suitable locality for its multicultural residents. In no other city is it possible to get to know so many different nationalities by way of their food, and thus to constantly experience something new. For example, visitors to the Book Fair or the IAA - International Automobile Exhibition - can always find a Frankfurt resident eager to introduce them to their cuisine. It is just these influences that influence Frankfurt s specialties today and will continue to do so in the future. Nevertheless, it is always interesting to rediscover the originals. That is possible with this new cookbook from the Verlag Gebrüder Kornmayer. The Frankfurt Cookbook presents a connection between old favorites and new recipes. It also gives even Frankfurt citizens a completely new glimpse of their regional kitchen.
