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?

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:

Asparagus & Strawberries – a dream team

May and June, fresh green, herbs in abundance, asparagus, strawberries, rhubarb – culinary the best time of the year. While asparagus was always associated with smoked ham and hollandaise sauce, asparagus is popular with us today as a salad or crunchy roasted. And the combination of salmon, asparagus, strawberries, pine nuts and fine oil is just gorgeous.

Finally again a Captain’s Dinner: Chicken in Vermouth on his return

In our family calendar there are days marked with two letters and a laughing smiley. There are also days marked with a crying one. The letters are the initials of my dearest, obvious what the emojis stand for: Signing off and on, that’s how it is called in shipping terms. It means to come home and to go aboard a ship. Today the emoji is beaming in our calendar!

Delicate and juicy – beef

Tafelspitz [boiled fillet] – Austrian cuisine’s classic. Needs a bit of time, but requires little work. And best of all, the beef stays super-juicy as it is cooked in broth. Together with asparagus or the Frankfurt Green Sauce a real Sunday roast.
