Pikeperch with potato crust on a bed of cauliflower purée

I told you once that I don’t really like cauliflower. Well, maybe not as such. Whenever someone prepared it and it was on my plate I ate it but was never really thrilled about it. My vegetable of choice was always the broccoli. When it wasn’t available in the store, but the cauliflower was I …

Keema matar and homemade flatbread

You know, the last few weeks have been packed with new challenges and I had to cut down on my cooking letting Philipp be the chef cook for that time. So over the weekend when it felt just long enough for me to stay out of the kitchen, I took over. And it felt so …

Sunday dinner: pork tenderloin with herb crust

It’s Sunday, the sky is blue and normally we would be up and going towards the mountains for a hike or just a cruise through the little villages and country roads. But not today. My brother paid us a very welcome but surprise visit so during his short stay we tried to show him what …

Ravioli with asparagus and ricotta filling

Asparagus season is upon us, and to be honest it’s one of those things which you can hardly miss here in Germany. In the cities, most of the restaurants will proudly anounce the beginning of the season on the blackboards with a variety of new recipes. Even the little veggetable and fruit stands spread across …

If it’s Thursday, it’s meatballs days!

Something very simple today, and since today is Thursday I went for meatballs. I’m sure everyone knows meatballs, in any form, stuffed, baked and with variety of sides. This is one of those things my parents would make for dinner during the week, mostly on Thursdays, due to its simplicity and the fact that it’s …

Happy Easter and smoked salmon and eggs tartare for breakfast

What’s the best thing about Easter? Is it the beginning of spring, time with the family, or the easter egg hunt? For me it’s the long Easter Sunday breakfast which often lasts until early afternoon, with hearty and sweet treats piled up on the table. It’s probably the only time of the year where I …

Savory goulash soup for cold days

Easter is only weeks away, and I thought it’s about time to post few suitable recipes. You know, something light. I was really looking forward to it, even though outside it doesn’t feel like Spring just yet. And then today morning I looked out of the window, only to find snow and temperatures below zero.

Simple potato gratin with salmon

I don’t know if it’s me, or the Winter, but the last few weeks I have been feeling rather.. well, sleepy and more or less in energy saving mode. My motivation, or better said the lack of it, even got as far as the kitchen. So after keeping my cooking as simple as it gets, …

Carrot soup with an orienal twist

I hope you are enjoying Winter as much as I do. I have been covered in snow for the good part of this year, and mind you, the year just began. Well, more like I had to go away to see the real Winter, but who wouldn’t want to wander in waist-deep snow in -20C …

Potatoes and sauerkraut pot with cured pork

You know, I actually wanted to show you few more Oktoberfest recipes, but a fried chicken is pretty straight forward and Sauerbraten, which literally translates into sour roast, takes about a week to prepare. Well, bad planning on my side, but I’d blame it on beer. So instead I prepared something that takes max 30min …
