Have You Lost A Favourite
German Recipe?


Dear Visitors to tasty-german-recipe, this section is now closed for new submissions. Please accept my sincere apologies. The reason being is because the pages created are not seen as quality pages by the search engines thus penalising my site at the search engines.

Thank you for your understanding.

If you are searching for lost recipes, you have come to the right place. Perhaps you visited Germany and tasted a wonderful German food dish, but can't remember the name of it. Or maybe your mother or grandmother once made a German dish that you would like to try again but you cannot find the recipe.

I receive many emails a month from my visitors looking for a wonderful German food recipe they have tried, but alas do not have the recipe or don't know the name.

Now, you can submit your recipe request here which will be shared with hundreds of other German recipe lovers from around the world. We will try and help you find the recipe you are looking for.



By the way, if it turns out that you have a recipe someone else is looking for, please send it to them in a Comment, and the person who made the request will be notified.

And if you still can't find it...

Use My Lost Recipes Finder!


Submit your German recipe recipe request in the Recipe Finder below. Another German recipe lover might have the recipe you aren looking for. Please only submit ONE request at a time, however, you are welcome to return later and submit additional requests.

Suggestions

The more information you can give about the recipe, the greater the chance that someone will respond with a comment. A request needs to contain enough information to help someone identify the recipe and want to give it to you. Requests that are too brief won't be published.

You might also like to include a little bit about yourself, your memory of the German recipe and why you would like to find it.

Please send us your lost recipe request.

We would love to help you find it.

Here's How

1. Enter the German recipe name. This will help people to find your recipe request page when they search for it. If you don't know the name then I will try and name it appropriately from the information you have given.

2. Enter your German recipe request. Share as much information as you want.
