To those who don’t know Gerhild, she’s the Oma who put German cuisine on the map with her highly popular website,
Oma dispelled, with great skill, my stereotypical view of beige-y sauce over beige-y sausage with beige-y sauerkraut and beige-y potatoes and finally – beige-y taste. I thought all German cuisine was the same – sausage. Boy was I wrong. Beautifully photographed, Oma’s recipes taste as scrumptious as they look.
Look out France, Spain and Italy. A new major European cuisine is about to give you a run for our palates! 😋

I have followed Gerhild’s recipes for many years. Her recipes are similar to the ones I grew up eating from my German heritage. I have found her recipes to be authentic and easy to understand. In Gerhild’s book, German Meals at Oma’s, I like how she divided the recipes by regions of Germany. I also love her pictures and little tips given about the recipes. These are great for the readers! I recommend this book for all cooks; beginners and experienced.

As a German-American that is a bit culinarily challenged, this book is a true blessing! What makes this book extra wonderful is that the recipes are separated by region. German food is more complex than bratwurst, sauerkraut and pretzels! This classic cookbook has not only a variety of different recipes, but also key notes to help even those with little experience in the kitchen learn to make excellent German cuisine.

Gerhild takes us on a culinary journey across Germany through her thoughtful selection of regional dishes, with helpful tips and anecdotes along the way. Written with heart and expertise, Gerhild captures the essence of traditional German food culture in a way that will elicit an enthusiastic “Guten Appetit!”

Love authentic German food? Oma creates traditional German recipes with tips and tricks to make them inexpensive, no fuss, and tasty! Can’t pronounce Rotkohl mit Äpfeln? No problem! Oma lets you in on just what the recipe is (Red Cabbage and Apples) AND makes it so simple to prepare even an Irishwoman like me could follow her recipes.

This comprehensive cookbook brings back so many treasured food memories from my childhood. My German “Mutti” and her mom, my Oma, both long gone, were such great cooks, but their recipes were never written down. Gerhild Fulson’s expansive recipe collection will help people of my generation with their “lost” recipes and it will introduce new generations to German specialties that are both delicious and a part of Germany’s rich culinary culture.
