Ein Neu Kochbuch
A German cookery book published in 1581, and probably the earliest to contain potato recipes - as the German"s were the first Europeans to fully accept potatoes as part of their regular diet.
Scotland was the slowest part of Europe to accept the tuber, as the Presbyterian clergy said that they weren"t safe to eat, as they weren"t mentioned in the Bible.
If you enjoy cooking take a minute to look at ‘Simon Scrutton French Cookery Classes’ on Google – and learn how to make top class bistro-style dishes. Suitable for beginners upwards. Small classes.
