Drew Lazor on German Cuisine

brauhaus-schmitz-pretzel

Remember yesterday when we wrote about Matt Rodbard and his piece about Israeli food and Michael Solomonov over at Food Republic? Well those crazy cats are continuing their tour of world cuisines and today are focusing on Germany. And guess who showed up to write about Jeremy Nolen, Brauhaus Schmitz and how Europeans think that Americans eat nothing but giant cartoon hamburgers?

It’s Drew Lazor, who has a nice piece on the often overlooked variety in German cuisine. To wit:

Of course, just like some foreigners believe Americans subsist solely on a diet of cartoon hamburgers, the typical Yankee perception of Germanic grub tends to be shortsighted and inaccurate. How it became this way is a slightly convoluted issue, but the good news is chefs like Nolen are hellbent on righting the schnitzel ship, once and for all.
