In Das Cookbook, chef and restauranteur Hans Röckenwagner draws on more than thirty years of experience cooking and baking in Los Angeles, Germany, and Switzerland. This modern German-Californian cookbook features sections on bread-making (including pretzel bread!), holiday treats, and bar snacks, along with the most popular recipes from his several LA restaurants, including 3 Square Cafe on famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard and Cafe Röckenwagner in Brentwood.
From fresh, light salads inspired by the Santa Monica Farmers’ Market, where Röckenwagner shops weekly, to such hearty German classics as spätzle and schnitzel, to the breads and baked goods for which he is renowned, Das Cookbook shares all of Röckenwagner’s best recipes, all created, tested, and perfected for the home cook.
