My Kitchen Rules Recipes

The Wednesday Chef cooks her heart out, finds her way home, and shares her recipes with us

It takes courage to turn your life upside down, peculiarly when every one is telling you how lucky you are. But most times what seems right may feel deeply wrong. My Berlin Kitchen tells the story of how one exhaustively confused, kitchen-mad perfectionist broke off her engagement to a handsome New Yorker, quit her dream job, and found her way to a new life, a new man, and a new home in Berlin—one recipe at a time.

Luisa Weiss grew up with a divided heart, shuttling back and forth amongst her father in Boston and her Italian mother in Berlin. She was always yearning for home—until she found a new home in the kitchen. Luisa started clipping recipes in college and was a cookbook editor in New York when she decisive to bake, roast, and stew her way through her by then unwieldy collection over the course of one tumultuous year. The blog she wrote to document her adventures in (and out) of the kitchen, The Wednesday Chef, soon became a sensation. But she never stopped hankering for Berlin.

Luisa will seduce you with her stories of foraging for plums in abandoned orchards, battling with white asparagus at the tail end of the season, orchestrating a three-family Thanksgiving in Berlin, and mending her broken heart with batches (and batches) of totally unlikely German Christmas cookies. Fans of her award-winning blog will recognise the happy ending, but any individual who enjoyed Julie and Julia will laugh and cheer and cook alongside Luisa as she takes us into her heart and tells us how she gave up everything only to find love waiting where she least expected it.

5lovely writing and great recipes
By Marie J. Morris
I have long been enchanted with The Wednesday Chef and have always found her recipes and retakes of others’ recipes very thoughtful, clearly presented and just plain tasty. The cookbook adds more depth but retains her
very intelligent and charming voice.

5Beautiful!
By Julie E. Ruble
From my review on my blog, Willow Bird Baking:

My Berlin Kitchen is a love story, a story of place, a memoir, a cookbook — so many different things. I’ve been a bit disillusioned with cookbooks lately. Everyone has one and they’re all beautiful, but the focus is on the food. Maybe it sounds odd or counter-intuitive for a food blogger to say the focus shouldn’t be the food, but I always feel like people can find recipes anywhere. There are websites and books full of great dishes, cooking tips and techniques, and reviews.

What I’m looking for in a food blog — and, I now realize, even in a cookbook — is a person. I want the intersection of a person’s fragile or sacred moments AND the food that carries them through. I want to be invited in. In My Berlin Kitchen, Luisa opens the door, invites me, and even serves me some cake. The beautiful, personal nature of the narrative and its gorgeous food descriptions make it such a wonderful book to settle onto the couch with. I hope you’ll pick up a copy.

5Simply delicious and addictive- I could not put it down!
By bordertejana
So lovely! I could not put it down. So plan a lazy weekend to devour it. I will admit I am a fan of The Wednesday Chef food blog as much for Luisa Weiss’s writing as for her recipes. I had no idea what this book would really be about- or if it would capture what I love about her blog. I was blown away. It is a personal story of the writer’s journey to self-discovery with themes of cultural identity, family, career, and love– and woven into the narrative are delicious recipes that play an important part in her journey, Food is her touchstone. At the end of each chapter is the recipe that played a role in the chapter. Loved how it was organized. Love how now when I make her ragu–I will think of the little old lady in Italy who gave her the recipe. Love how she describes New York City, Paris, Italy countryside and Berlin. On my Christmas List!
