Strawberries, the stars on the early summer stage

When strawberries step on the stage, you can be sure: Now it’s getting delicious! With this strawberry-orange-mascarpone-cake they have a big performance! Their role in the play: the icing of a fine, fresh cake made from orange, mascarpone, curd and cream. Strawberry’s duet partner is the vanilla. Unbeatable!

The halibut, which is a flounder

The name is misleading, because strictly speaking, the white halibut is a flounder, because he is right-eyed. His body is brown-black and white on the “blind side”, hence the name. It can become incredible four meters long. Ours was not that big…

BBQ with deer

I like deer. In any form. I like deer so much that they can eat everything in our garden almost unhindered,  without really taking any serious action against it – from the tulip to the apple tree, from the phlox to the cranesbill. But of course that’s another “liking”. The culinary “liking” in this case refers to finely marinated deer steak from the grill. Who says that game must always come as a roast?

Really wild wild herbs salad

What they sell on the domestic German markets as “wild asparagus” botanically is no asparagus. Of course wild asparagus exists, and I know it from my time in northern Spain, where we collected the wild asparagus in nature. Here in Germany, however, the flower sprouts of the Pyrenean Star of Bethlehem are offered under this term, mostly grown in France. And it is really delicious. Raw or steamed, it tastes very intense. For a wild herb salad a “snappy” enrichment.

Matjes season starts right now

“Fischkopp” [head of a fish] is the affectionate name for a North German. For them, Matjes season starts in June. I hardly can imagine anything that tastes more like North Germany: Matjes which means young salted herring. Matjes homestyle with apples we eat for hearty breakfast or we enjoy it as a main meal with fresh potatoes or a thick slice of black bread. How we prepare the matjes at home, you can read here:

Wanderlust to Scandinavia

If there are Scandinavian cinnamon buns at home, then I know our daughter is going on vacation to the far north of Europe, or she has just returned. Yesterday it was time again: incredibly seductive scent of cinnamon and cardamom moved through the house. And in fact: in two weeks she’ll start. Sweden, Norway, Finland.
