Am having trouble translating some parts of a menu. Can anyone help me with the following: "Kabinettwein", "Tomatenkraftbrühe", "salutierte Zuckerschoten", "Baumkuchen". TIA!

English translation:Kabinett wine, tomato beef broth, blanched snow peas, Baumkuchen
Explanation:
Kabinett is a grade of white wine and shouldn't be translated. It's of a quality higher than table wine but lower than Auslese. Cooks know the difference. I would x/l as "Kabinett quality wine". A Kraftbrühe is a clear beef broth. Tomatenkraftbrühe is made by adding tomatoes to the meat and bones during the cooking and then straining all through cheese cloth to obtain the broth. Zuckerschoten are snow peas and salutieren means blanching, the process of cooking a vegetable for a very short time to maintain its colour. With snow peas you generally put them in a colander and pour boiling water over them. Baumkuchen is a pastry which is baked in layers. Part of the batter is spread into the pan and baked briefly, then another layer is spread over that and baked and so on until all the batter has been used. This is then frosted with chocolate frosting. When cut, the slices look like a cross section of a tree. In all my years in the U.S. I've never seen this pastry here and have not a clue how to translate it. Hope this helps somewhat.

Explanation:
cabinet wine, tomato-beef tea/soup/consommé , sautéed/sauté (young) pea pods, pyramid (layer) cake

"salutierte" never seems to show up anywhere with a culinary meaning, but since the pea pods are best cooked quickly and best not over-done, the meaning could be sauté, but this is only a guess. The other words are in Langenscheidt.
