      Besides the Die öffentliche Tafel: Tafelzeremoniell in Europa
      1300-1900 which a catalogue

      of an exhibition that covered the arts of dining and the table,

      a number of the Dover graphic arts books feature 16th and 17th century
      century
      German illustrations. Depending upon what you want, these may help.
      Once you know a source, it's possible to see what else is available
      and sources like
      Google Image searching and databases like ArtStor will help then.

      (It's sometimes helpful to
      search for such Biblical images as Last Suppers or St. Martha in her
      Kitchen.)

      (This image searching business tends to be frustrating because often
      the images that appear
      in modern catalogues and new books are often reduced or details are
      just lifted from the originals. Too
      often the originals are cited improperly to source. It took me months
      to identify
      one picture of a king eating a large molded cake. Nothing like loaning
      in books on the off chance they
      might have something valuable in them.)

      Bridget Henisch's new book The Medieval Cook includes only a couple
      images from
      German mss. A Kitchen boy is by Jacob Meydenbach of Mainz. (Walters
      Art Museum)

      (See http://www.kcl.ac.uk/depsta/iss/library/speccoll/bomarch/bomjuly.html
      for more information
      on the book.)

      There's a mobile oven in Constance by Ulrich Richental from the
      Richentalchronik 1465.

      Good luck and have fun
