Alsatian Cookbooks
by: Suzele

Hi Claire,

Unfortunately I have only seen Alsatian cookbooks (for Bredele also known as Alsatian Christmas Cookies or anything else) in French with French cooking measurements.

If you understand French, the only other thing you will need is a scale for measuring in grams and a large and small spoon (normally used at the table for eating).

You may find some small Alsace cookbooks in English while visiting Alsace in the occasional shop, but you won't find anything dedicated to Alsatian Christmas cookies or Bredele.

I'll consider doing a Bredele cookbook in English with American cooking measurements if there is enough interest...so let me know!

Happy Holidays,
