Recipes from Germany

German cuisine is the general term for the cuisine/cooking art of Germany. It is characterised by strong regional differences and, on the outer borders, historically influenced by the cuisine of neighbouring countries (e.g. France, Austria, Poland). German cuisine is varied and delicious but while many Germans have no problem lis􀆟ng typical French, Spanish or Swedish dishes, many find it much more difficult to define German food. People are reluctant to resort to the clichés of Sauerkraut and Weißwurst, because German cuisine is much more than that.
