"Für Eva Korhammer, Jahrgang 1932, sind in fünf Jahrzehnten Verlags- und Autorenarbeit ein paar Dinge besonders wichtig geworden: Kinder selbst zu Wort kommen zu lassen, ihnen die Geheimnisse des Büchermachens zu vermitteln und mit ihren Menschen-, Tier- und Pflanzenabenteuern Leselust zu wecken."

Ein wirklich nettes Kinderbuch mit viel Phantasie erzählt es die Höhen und Tiefen zwischenmenschlicher Beziehungen. Im Buch findet sich am Ende auch das Rezept für "Frankfurter Grüne Soße". Hier im Bild die typische "Frankfurter Grüne Soße" wie sie am Ende des Buches zubereitet wird und wie ich sie beim Meenzup im GastHof Grün gegessen habe.

That book will take part in the 1. very unofficial BookCrossing Olympics

This event takes place indoors (well, duh!) - think inside international boarders and make a release themed to your team's representative country.

Was gehört typischer Weise zu Hessen und speziell Frankfurt?

Die "grie Soß" oder für nicht Hessen die "Frankfurter Grüne Soße" or the Greene Sauce.
Dort wo sie her kommt, wurde ihr ein Denkmal gesetzt (Beschreibung s.Bild, wie's in natura aussieht s.u.).

Facts about Frankfurter Grüne Soße

Green sauces have been known for centuries in Italy and France. It is not certain whether French immigrants or Italian trading families brought the recipe to Frankfurt. It is also unknown why the Grüne Soße didn't spread all over Germany. There is only a variant eaten in Kassel, in the north of Hessen.

The most important ingredients of the Frankfurter Grie Soß, as the green sauce is called in the local dialect, are seven particular herbs. The percentage of each herb should not be more than 30%, and 70% of the herbs should have been grown in Frankfurt.

Herbs packages for Frankfurter Grüne Soße
The herbs are:
* Borretsch - Borage - Borago officinalis
* Kerbel - Chervil - Anthriscus cerefolium
* Kresse - Garden Cress - Lepidium sativum
* Petersilie - Parsley - Petroselinum crispum
* Pimpinelle - Salad Burnet - Sanguisorba minor
* Sauerampfer - Sorrel - Rumex acetosa
* Schnittlauch - Chives - Allium schoenoprasum
The most famous myth is that green sauce was Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's favourite dish, invented by his mother. Locals love to connect their favourite fare with the renowned author, who was born in Frankfurt. However, there is no evidence that this rumour is true. Actually, the first recipe of Frankfurter Grüne Soße was published in a cookbook by Wilhelmine Rührig in 1860, almost 30 years after Goethe's death.
Frankfurter Grüne Soße has a protected geographical status in Germany, an application for Europe-wide protection at the European commission is still negotiated. There is even a Grüne Soße monument in Frankfurt-Oberrad, seven green houses, one for each herb (s. PICTURE).

Frankfurter Grie Soß is served with potatoes and boiled eggs, or with Tafelspitz (prime cooked beef), or fish.

Whenever we have vistors from abroad, I recommend this authentic local dish because I really love it. I admit, reactions have been mixed.
