Jeremy Nolen of Brauhaus Schmitz has quickly become one of Philly's brightest star chefs and a critical darling, and now he has a book deal to go along with all of those accolades and media buzz. Nolen has earned tons of praise and regulars with his old school classics—if you haven't tried his beastly suckling pig, you should do so right away—but it's his foray into avant garde German cuisine (yes, it's a thing) that landed him his very own cookbook.
His pastry chef, Jessica Nolen—who also happens to be his lovely wife—is contributing dessert recipes to the tome, which is called New German Cooking. Local food scribe Drew Lazor is writing the book with Jeremy and Jessica, and Chronicle Books is the publisher. Since they're covering a cuisine that's on the rise and isn't already oversaturated with tons of other cookbooks, Chronicle has fast-tracked the project, and Nolen said it should be on shelves in the fall of 2014. Congrats, guys. Couldn't happen to a nicer and more talented couple.
