Can anyone tell me what is meant by "Top of Milk"?
Please forgive me for being a typical Aussie bachelor, but I like the sound of German Potato Salad

This is not German potato salad as I know it. I am German. Well, we always said, if you have not learned how to make potato salad from your mother or grandmother you will never know how to do it right. I have never seen a published receipe on how to make the right German potato salad.
