“Growing up in Reading and working in Philadelphia, I was always amazed at the wealth of amazing German fare around me and how little attention it got compared with French, Spanish and Italian cuisine,” says Jeremy. “At Brauhaus Schmitz and with our new cookbook, we’ve tasked ourselves with bringing this overlooked culinary style the recognition it deserves.” Jessica, whose sweets at Brauhaus Schmitz have earned both critical and popular acclaim, adds, “Many German recipes, especially cookies and pastries, are rich with tradition—making them as fascinating and fun to prepare as they are delicious.”
Purchase New German Cooking via Amazon, or, on Wednesday, Feb. 4, from 6–9 p.m., join Jeremy and Jessica at Brauhaus Schmitz (718 South St.) for a meet-and-greet party, where they’ll connect with fans and sign copies of the book. Light appetizers and selected dishes featured in New German Cooking, complimentary for those who buy a copy, will be served in the restaurant’s Brauer Bund room.
