    From LUCHOWS (there's an umlaut here, just like FRESHENS yogurt, to add
to that HAAGEN DAZS discussion) GERMAN COOKBOOK (1952) by Leonard Jan
Mitchell, pg. 190:

Not "just like" Freshens or Haagen Dazs, because the umlaut on the "u" in
"Luchows" (or "Luchow's", I'm not sure) is genuine. Even though everyone
pronounced it as if it were the name of a Chinese restaurant (/'lu ,tSauz/), it
was a family name, I'm pretty sure.

Hmm... Where's the name from, though, and how did it get there? That sure looks
like a Slavic ending on it. I'm going to cc: this to the American Name Society
