Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle In A Hurry

Spätzle, Spätzli, Chässpätzli, Chnöpfli, Knöpfle, Spatzen… or whatever you might call them. They’re basically a foodie’s dreams (plural) come true. For those who do not know what I’m talking about – “Spätzle who?” – here’s a funny description I found: “a specialty from Southern Germany, made by boiling small lumps of dough made from flour...

Pink Juice

Pink Juice

They say “eat your greens” – and God knows it’s not always easy. At least for me. Some days, I feel like healthy eating comes naturally to me. Other days… not so much. Not that I’m always just craving sugar and fat. But often times, unhealthy options are the easier choices. They’re at display, usually...

Whole Roasted Cauliflower w/ Sumach & Flowers

Whole Roasted Cauliflower w/ Sumach & Flowers

They say that you’re technically a grown-up at age 18… Well, I don’t know about you, but I most certainly wasn’t a grown-up at 18. To be honest, I’m still not sure wether I’d actively call myself “grown-up”, even now. First, this term leaves no room for imagination. It’s such an unforgiving term. Maybe I...

Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

Whole Roasted Brussels Sprouts on the Stalk

To whom sourcing local ingredients is a major concern, brussels sprouts are no doubt a welcome treat during the colder weather season. I love those buddies! Their taste, first and foremost, their texture (especially when roasted, which lends it an incomparable nutty flavor) and not least their looks.

Kale Cesar’s Salad

You darlings! I have to thank you for that overwhelming response to the design of the site and also the giveaway (still running until tomorrow, so make sure to enter a comment below the post). I would have never dreamed in my wildest dreams that anyone would be interested in receiving mail from me, but it...

Couscous & Mograbiah with Tomatoes

Couscous & Mograbiah with Tomatoes

Summer always causes me to chase that je ne sais quoi “summer feeling”. This easy-breeziness, that you somehow lose at the tender age of 14, and that you only seem to be able to compensate with an indecently expensive vacation to a place that can be summarized with words like: “luxury”, “retreat”, “beach front and...

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

Roasted Gazpacho with Sourdough Bread

I’m maybe the biggest fan of chilled soups there is. Why not? They’re (often) easy to make, flavorful, healthy, refreshing… And if you have only some imagination, it’s pretty a versatile way to feed people during the warmer months. And here’s another one: a gorgeous roasted Gazpacho with sourdough bread. Wes, it’s as good as...

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Chilled Tomato Soup with Cumin

Whenever there’s a chance to visit a farmer’s or flower market, I’m game. I like the hustle and bustle of the wee hours, the stalls being set up, people chatting and exchanging a few words with the cheese supplier of their choice. It’s time standing still. It’s like a mini vacation in an otherwise busy week....
