Summertime is barbecue time – and barbecue time for Grimm and me always means aubergine time too. This vegetable is one of our favourites to barbecue and as soon as the sun comes out we’re stoking up our BBQ it will surely have its place of honour on the grill or in form of a […]
It’s done! 1 week of hard work, visiting several restaurants, cafés and homes later I can finally show you what I and my Iranian friends have been working on so hard. I wanted to create a food photography series about Traditional Iranian food and I (we) couldn’t be happier with the results. All my adventures […]
I have something new for you. If you only recreate one recipe from my site go for this one! I’m currently madly in love with cashew nuts, whether it be sweet, savoury, whole or further processed – its variety makes it hard for me not to use it. Today’s recipe is an incredibly creamy and […]
I love scrambled eggs. This adoration goes back until my early childhood and manifests in my favourite meal cooked by my granny – scambled eggs with spinach, which she deliberately ‘stirred cold’ in front of the frontdoor so that us poor, impatient grand children didn’t burn their mouths and could start eating right away. Good […]
After all that feasting in the last weeks – pb cups, chocolate cake, French toast – I felt like having some extra portion of vegetables for a change. This yellow coconut curry is stuffed with lots different and colourful veggies. Carrots, celery, leeks, peppers and broccoli. I’ve also added some juicy pineapple for that extra […]
Sometimes you make a recipe draft and fall in love with it right from the beginning. This just happened to me with this garlic fried penne pasta with olives, dried tomatoes, capers, walnuts and fresh rocket salad. My bf Grimm announced this dish as his new favourite food right away. And I have to admit […]
I already promised it at the end of last year. Our stuffed and roasted Christmas pumpkin was served with creamy, garlicky mashed potatoes for which a recipe didn’t exist yet, shame on me! But after being bugged obtrusively by hosts of people (at least 2!) to finally fork out the recipe – it’s here.
In Winter I (re)discovered my love for soups. I have to admit that was never the biggest fan of soups. Not as a starter and certainly not as a full-featured main course – for me it was lacking the texture and bite… well, and I was lacking the appreciation for this amazing dish. But during […]
„Oh dear, we’ve spent our last vacation in topinambour. Beautiful, I can tell ya! The locals there are so rooted to the soil and absolutely grounded.“ This could have been one of the unknowing reactions from my fellow people, when I told them about the awesome risotto with topinambour I made. Well, I guess there […]
Wohoo, after almost two years, when I showed you How to host a Sushi Party, I’m finally throwing in some new food party inspiration for all of you who love to cook and eat in company. This time I’ve got you covered with recipes and inspiration for a successful Mexican Food Party with tacos, tortillas, […]
Well, sometimes your private life just kicks in at the busiest time of the year, and just doesn’t give a shit that you planned to publish your Christmas dinner in the beginning of December. Instead I now have a last minute Christmas quickie for you shortly before Christmas Eve.
[ad for Klarstein] The past few months have by far been the busiest and most eventful time of my admittedly still rather young blogger and photography career. So many things happened almost simultaneously. I accepted a job offer as a food photographer in Hamburg and moved there at short notice. Around the same time I got […]
