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 …

Chocolate cheesecake

Do you also have days when everything what can go wrong, just goes wrong? For me this could be a perfect summary of last week. It has been so frustrating. Not even cooking helped, since even that turned out far from how it’s supposed to look like. But thank heaven for the weekend, as my …

Homemade chocolate ice cream

The Spring, after a rough beginning, is finally here. Everything’s blooming, and although some mornings it’s still a little bit frosty, the temperature during the day stays in enjoyable mid 20ºC. It’s so beautiful, that even I, a winter enthusiast, am looking forward to going outside. We even reactivated our little ritual of stopping for …

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 …

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, …

Winter salad with roasted vegetables

Now that Christmas is over, it’s on to New Year’s Eve. It’s still 3 days left until then, but occasionally one can already hear firecrackers fired outside. Reminding that it’s time to decide how one wants to spend this evening. We decided to spend this New Year’s Eve with only few people, and I already …

Poppy seed cake with pudding cream

I have showed you an idea for a festive Christmas dinner, and today I’m going one step further, to show you something for the dessert. In my family, since I can remember, we used one ingredient which had to be included in all, or at least most, sweet things during Christmas. It’s poppy seeds.

What to cook this Christmas? How about this roast beef with baked apple crust.

The first snow fell and the world starts looking like a winter wonderland again. We really enjoy this time of the year. Everything look so beautiful, well, at least as long as there is snow, and one can observe the first preparations for christmas. We already visited one christmas market and enjoyed hot glühwein with …
