Lüchow’s German Cookbook

I was just able to procure a copy of this little gem on eBay. Easily one of the coolest cookbooks I have ever found. While some of the recipes are going to be hard to pull off (one calls for simmering a cow’s head and pig head for hours to form a broth), others (potato dumplings, veal with paprika sauce, lobster bisque) sound AMAZING and not overly complicated. What adds to the enjoyment behind this book is the notoriety of Lüchow’s itself (formerly an NYC staple with folks like J.P. Morgan, Roosevelt, and H.L. Mencken as regulars).
