The Berlin Cookbook Review

I was able to recently review a book titled The Berlin Cookbook. This is a cookbook from, you guessed it:) Berlin! Actually, the recipes are from Berlin but the cookbook itself is from here in the US. Now, I have to tell you, I have not had real German food in quite a while. We used to live near a German restaurant but since we moved we have not had any. So looking through this cookbook was quite a temptation:)

The book is well written with storyline along with recipes. It piques your interest so that you keep reading and checking out the recipes. The pictures I think could have been a little more well done as they look older and not quite as appetizing. That is a big thing to me with cookbooks. If the pictures are not up to par where the food looks steaming hot and mouthwatering, I will probably not try the recipe.

My favorite recipe from the whole book would probably be the Konigsberg Meatballs. They look delicious and the recipe is nice and easy. I have to say some of the recipes about made me get sick:P The raw meatballs just turned my stomach. Never knew people ate them like that but that must be the way in Berlin.

Overall this cookbook would be a great gift for someone who is from Berlin or who wants a realistic cookbook. If you really want the recipes from there, this is your book! You can purchase this off Amazon or from the website Berlinica Publishing.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. All thoughts are 100% mine. I did not receive any monetary compensation.
