Spoonfuls of Germany ebook sales to benefit local food bank

Every time I cook dinner I am grateful for the food I can put on the table. I know that so many people right now are in dire straights because of the pandemic.

Starting March 30, I am donating all the royalties from the sale of the ebook edition of my German regional cookbook, Spoonfuls of Germany, to the Second Harvest Food Bank of Lehigh Valley and Northeast Pennsylvania.

I receive $4.42 for each ebook sold on Amazon.com. Second Harvest turns every $1 donation into six meals for people in need.

So… if there are any German dishes you always wanted to try, such as this delightful Pea Soup with Semolina Dumplings, a traditional spring soup, buy the book here.

On Amazon international sites, search for “Spoonfuls of Germany Kindle edition”.

You don’t need a Kindle, just download the free Kindle app, which works on any device.

Or, buy the ebook as a digital gift for a friend or family member anywhere in the world. All you need is the recipient’s email address.

This applies to the ebook edition of my cookbook only. The hardcover and paperback editions are out of print. The copies that are being sold on different websites are beyond my reach, which means I don’t get royalties.

Thank you for being kind and generous to others.

Stay home, and stay safe.

This is my last blog post for The Year of German-American Friendship. Over the past thirteen months I have profiled people in the US from very different backgrounds and professions: a butcher, a miller, a gingerbread baker, a candy maker, a German food truck owner, the two founders of a döner restaurant chain, a food historian, and a fruit grower – all with a link to Germany.

I am wrapping my series up with Elliott Shore, who epitomizes German-American friendship and is professor of history emeritus at Bryn Mawr College. Shore is an American academic who combines in-depth study of Germany with a strong personal connection to the country. Continue reading
