"This 160-page cookbook in the German language has the purpose
to be used, to be read and to be studied..." This cookbook brings
the old homeland heritage closer, not only to those German-Russians
who have settled after WWII in Germany, but also to interested
newcomers. A priority for Nelly Däs was to effectively reflect
the life of our German-Russian people. Occasionally providing
historic details give insights into why particular recipes are
enhanced by commentary and vignettes. Some recipes even indicate
their origin, i.e. places of deportation of the German-Russian
people for Alexandrowka-Salat; or Roter Borscht, a venerable Ukrainian
Investigate wonderful recipes, such as Kässpäzle, Schwäbischer
Kartoffelsalat, Apfelkückle, Apfelkuchen, Hüjmersuppe, Fleischkückle,
and further tempting foodway survivals!
The family ancestors of Nelly Däs originated from Friedrichsfeld,
Swabia, in 1811. This explains the reason why mostly Swabian recipes
are presented, although other regional cuisine is represented:
Rhineland's Himmel und Erde, or Black Forest is potato soup, or
Lüneburger Heide's Heidschnucken. A dialect term for "sheep",
Rücken in Wacholdersahne, gives us whimsy to food titles.
Every recipe has been researched and tested. Nelly Däs has made
a valuable contribution to historic foodways of the Germans from
Russia culture with her excellent new recipe book. Enjoy! Gut
There is a table of contents, additional pages for notes or
adding recipes and, finally, a summary biography about the author.
