Mushroom risotto, simple, vegetarian, delicious

January 20th, 2018 | main dishes

Looking for a special mushrooms variety of really high quality, you will find it on the most beautiful of all Hamburg weekly markets, the Isemarkt. At the booth of Tarik Baltaci, the selection is huge. Mushrooms with fine-sounding names and wonderful flavors are waiting for the buyer: rose and almond mushrooms, cauliflower mushrooms, autumn trumpets, Pom Pom Blanc. And Tarik’s friendly and expert advice are free there! Fancy a mushroom risotto?

For this risotto Tarik recommended porcini mushrooms, almond mushrooms and chestnut mushrooms – and it was simply delicious! The very, very delicate almond scent and taste was really special. Of course, other mushrooms can be used instead depending on the season and what is offered. King oyster mushrooms for example are available all year round and taste very well in the risotto.

Kale with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

When I was a child I did not like kale. I qualified this statement when I travelled to Shanghai and tasted sea cucumbers. Today I eat kale, but I still don’t like our traditional German way to prepare kale. Too fat, too ugly, too heavy. And then this sausage called „Pinkel“?!? Last autumn I gave kale a second chance. I must admit it’s a very tasty vegetable. It’s only a matter of how to prepare it. Try this.

Le Lion Bar in Hamburg – if you have survived the doorman, it’s getting really good!

This bar is something of delightfully “old school”… We had read of “Le Lion” and wanted to take an aperitif there. The fact that we had not booked on a Thursday around 7 pm, made the smart but somewhat unfriendly doorman raise the eyebrow. After all, he had heard our ringing and somewhat reluctantly admitted.

Vanilla Quince

Quinces are childhood memory for me. Grew up on the North Sea every summer we visited our grandparents in the Odenwald, a German low mountain range. In their (kitchen) garden they grew a quince tree in addition to many other fruit trees. Plums, apples, pears, we also had in our garden at home, but I had never seen quinces in North Germany. I thought they were unique in my grandparents‘ garden. Grandma Anna’s quince jelly was my favourite!
