Nestled in Southwestern Germany, the region surrounding the Black Forest or Schwarzwald, is known throughout Europe and beyond for its rich and internationally influenced cuisine, making it a top destination for gourmands around the world. In Black Forest Cuisine, Chef Walter Staib takes readers on a whirlwind tour of his homeland in the way he knows best: through its culinary treasury. Each chapter introduces dishes as they are served in a variety of Black Forest environs--from the comfort food of A Home Kitchen to the more portable meals from the Cafe, to the more complicated banquets of a Gasthaus to the grand menus feature in fashionable Hotels. In this compendium of local yet worldly cuisine, Chef Staib shows that the cuisine of the Black Forest inspires much more than just a cake.
