"Deutche Fusch Rezepte"
I was in Koblenz,Germany to visit with my son (in the Air Force)& wife when my first grandson (Mark)was born in 1970.
They rented an farm apartment on the 2nd floor of a German family.
While there for 1 month, I also enjoyed many German dishes that the landlady & I cooked together. I came back home with many great recipes. This is one of them.
She spoke no English & I could not speak German.
But, Oh did we have fun..lots of sign language, laughter and beer!
