One of the most famous specialities from the Frankfurt area is without question Handkäs` with music. Not only the preparation, but also the right way of consumption for optimal enjoyment is of utmost importance. But despite all the love for the hearty piece of culinary city history: Handkäs' has much more to offer than this traditional dish. Now in the second edition of the "Handkäs` Kompositionen" published by CoCon-Verlag you can get your own impression of this. And one thing is guaranteed: you will be surprised how versatile the "guude Handkäs`" can be used.
X>BR</x>Delikat - Exotic - Elegant: This is how the "Handkäs` compositions", divided into cold dishes, salads, small warm dishes, soups and warm dishes, present themselves. There is the "Handkäs`-Creme für Eilige", quickly and easily prepared, as well as the more elaborate "Handkästorte Gettenbacher Art", which combines Handkäs` with coriander, cherry tomatoes, walnuts and dark beer to create a very special cake creation. Piquant handmade cheese bags for the small hunger in between or as a tasty starter can be found here as well as the extremely tasty cucumber-crab handmade cheese salad. And if you're looking for a more cosy way to get down to business, then the Handkäs fondue is just the thing for you. More than sixty recipes have been lovingly compiled here. The preparation is clearly specified, the ingredients clearly presented. A nice introduction, selected hints for some recipes and interesting facts about Handkäs` round off the positive overall picture of the book.
The "Handkäs` Kompositionen" published by Birgit Neeb are the best proof that Handkäs` is more versatile than its purely "musical" reputation might suggest. And therefore this book is absolutely recommendable also for all cheese lovers!
