Lately, Germany has been earning kudos for its high-end cuisine, counting 11 restaurants with three Michelin stars (the only European country with more is France).



But Teutonic home cooking still has something of a reputation for being heavy on fatty meats and light on complexity.



That's a shame, because there's a lot to like about regional German recipes, such as the dishes shown here from
Biergarten Cookbook
, by Julia Skowronek (DK, March 2015), and Jeremy and Jessica Nolen's
New German Cooking
(Chronicle Books, January 2015).



And with the 50th anniversary edition of Mimi Sheraton's seminal and still-relevant classic
The German Cookbook
(Random House, 2014), there's no better time to get (back) into German food.
