Berlin, Germany's capital and largest city, is one of the country's smallest states.
Filled with beautiful parks and boulevards such as the Kurfürstendamm, historic buildings, museums, opera houses, zoological gardens, and much more, this city is a tourist's delight.
History has certainly affected the culinary tastes of Germany.
Fast foods rival the traditional menus.
Berlin is the birthplace of the popular Currywurst which has recently been overtaken by the popularity of the Döner Kebab.
With thousands of snack bars (Imbiss), sidewalk cafes, restaurants, and inns (Kneipen) to choose from, Berlin offers visitors and citizens a multicultural feast.

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
