Recipe by the Book: Zwetschgenkuchen for Send for Me

Lauren Fox’s new novel Send for Me is a beautiful work of historical fiction that moves between Germany on the eve of World War II and present-day Wisconsin, unspooling a thread of love, longing, and the powerful bonds of family.

Much of Send for Me is set in the Adler family bakery in Feldenheim, Germany, and so we’re pleased to share with you a recipe for Joan Nathan’s Zwetschgenkuchen—this German plum tart is sure to be the hit of your next reading group gathering! (And if you need inspiration, be sure to check out our reading group guide questions here.)
