Did you still doubt that the reputation of Alsatian's rich gastronomy has long since crossed borders? The "Lebermausse" (liver mouse), the "chocolate cake", the "Fleishknepfles" (meatballs)... so many traditional dishes that can be found in the book "Nos recettes alsaciennes".

The jury of professionals was charmed "by the terroir, tradition and sharing" defended by "Nos recettes alsaciennes". "For the recipes proposed by the amateurs, we accompanied the instructions with intimate stories.

The book "Nos recettes alsaciennes" is on sale in all bookshops and on the Internet at the price of 35 euros.
