Our New Alpine Seasoning Cookbook Makes Alpine Cooking Simple
Although it’s only been on Mount Salem Kitchen shelves for a few weeks, already, our new alpine seasoning, which features flavors of herbs you might find in a meadow or vegetable garden yet with a savory twinge originating from the European Alps, has become a favorite of home cooks.
With our new cookbook, “Alpine Eating: An Introduction,” a 38-recipe softcover book with color photos, you can find even more uses for our alpine seasoning, which many users have already told us they use every single day.
Available for $19.99 at our alpine seasoning launch event on Saturday, Sept. 5 and subsequently from our website and Etsy store, our new cookbook includes recipes for dishes such as our insanely popular Liptauer cheese spread, a former family secret; Bratwürstl, bratwurst slowly cooked in sauerkraut, onions and seasonings; our house-made potato chips; and our succulent and nearly fat-free Salzburg BBQ chicken.
What’s alpine cooking?
A mystery to many, alpine cooking originates from the European Alps, a region that includes parts of countries such as Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland. Many would be shocked to discover that what’s eaten in alpine Italy, for example, is a world away from what’s eaten in Florence or Naples, but has much in common with what’s enjoyed in alpine Austria.
Once we discovered this, we spent 10 years learning about and discovering alpine cuisine for ourselves, which has finally culminated in our Alpine seasoning. With “Alpine Eating: An Introduction,” you can capture the flavors of the European alps in your own kitchen.
