A Salad Called German Potato

German Potato Salad The Vintage Cook




Why not turn German Potato Salad into a main dish salad? This recipe features Black Gold Farms Red Potatoes, right out of the dirt. I boiled the potatoes whole, with the skins on so the inner earth flavor wouldn’t be washed away. Then I cooled and sliced. I followed the above recipe only…

then added baby romaine and fresh green beans. For the green beans: Snip ends, boil for 5 minutes, strain and place in a bowl of ice water until ready to serve. The ice water bath stops the cooking process and gives them that fresh green color. If you’ve never had German Potato Salad, it’s generally served warm and has a vinegar base. You can replace the vinegar with lemon juice if you like, but vinegar makes it authentic!

As #Brunchweek winds down, I’m thinking about some of the wonderful new blogs I will now follow. I’ve even learned a few new cooking tricks this week.

I also had the chance to reflect on my journey with The Vintage Cook. It all began back in 2007 when I first started entering cooking contests. I highly recommend joining www.contestcooking.com  if you love to create recipes. It gave me opportunities I never dreamed of, like walking the red carpet at The Grammy’s.

I remembered this week, the real reason I chose “The Vintage Cook.”  It was because I wanted to share my beloved collection of vintage cook books.

The Vintage Cook's Library

As you may have noticed, I haven’t posted as much in the past six months. The reason for that, is my BIG Announcement….

I’m officially the CEO of Bow Tie Foods, Inc. A licensed Food Processing Facility. I’m so happy to finally launch my business ideas and dreams into reality. You will see small changes here at The Vintage Cook as we are adding a product line of packaged cooking/baking products such as cookies, breads, and oatmeal blends. Hopefully aprons and cooking pottery too.

However our first line of products, set to launch next month is…

Blooming Pasta
Small Batch Crafted, Organic, Gourmet Artisanal Pasta and Noodles

So if you don’t see me around for a few weeks, you know what I’m doing! It’s important that you know, I am NOT The Vintage Cook, all of us who cook– are The Vintage Cook, because every recipe has a history.


The winners of our #Brunchweek will be announced today during a Pinchat. http://pinterest.com/lovenconfection/brunchweek-2013/
