Last week I presented the book Cooking For Dogs, if you missed it click here . As promised, today I am here to share with you, the first book of the series (yes, I know I am backwards!) BAKING FOR DOGS, THE BEST RECIPES FROM DOG’S DELI by Friederike Friedel.
DOG’S DELI is a bakery for dogs’ baked goods in Carlstadt, Duesseldorf, Germany. A brown male Labrador named Billy, was the inspiration for DOG’S DELI. Billy wouldn’t eat willingly which made him more difficult to train or “bribe” which made cooking special meals a necessity and earned Billy his title of “official food taster/tester.”
As I mentioned in the earlier post, I love to cook but baking? Not-so-much. I consider myself to be “baking challenged.”
I was delighted when perusing this beautifully photographed book and reading the recipes because there were a number of them that I am definitely going to be trying. Here are a few that are on my MUST BAKE list!
- Blueberry Scones-this screams Sunday morning or afternoon tea?
- Cheese Sticks-the recipe for this sounds like a recipe that I have for humans!
- Yogurt With Fresh Fruit-yes I know this isn’t BAKING, I told you I am baking challenged, remember?
- Potato Chips With Parmesan-I just might be crunching on these with Dakota!
Now I am NOT one that would ever eat Liver, but Liver seems to be on the I LOVE IT list for many dogs!
Check these out!
From the author: Baking by following recipes from DOG’S DELI is child’s play. As a matter of principle, neither sugar nor additives, fragrances nor readymade products are used. You probably have most of the ingredients on hand at home. If you should get hungry yourself, go ahead and take a bite of one of your fresh-baked cookies.
I had hoped to make a few recipes and let you know how they came out, but due to time constraints (among other things!) I was unable to. As the months go on and I do make a number of the recipes from both books, I will be sure to share with you!
In the meantime, if you like to prepare wholesome, easy-to-make dishes for your dog, this book definitely should be a part of your cookbook collection!
