The atmosphere… quite different…

The Palatinate: pure pleasure – Part 2

The Palatinate – a region of superlatives! The largest wine barrel in the world, the largest wine festival in the world, the oldest wine route, the oldest wine bottle and last but not least about 100 million vines and fantastic wine… Not to mention Saumagen [stuffed pig’s stomach], liver dumplings and the beautiful landscape…

Strawberry Marshmallows

In Hamburg they call marshmallows “Hamburg Speck”. Who doesn’t immediately think of the Hamburg Dom [one of the biggest, longest lasting and oldest outdoor fairs in the world] of love apples and Ferris wheel.

The Palatinate: pure pleasure – Part 1

A model railway idyll, pretty half-timbered houses like a string of pearls, vineyards as far as the eye can see, here and there a castle, a climate like velvet and silk, culinary delicacies from hearty regional cuisine to fine dining, excellent wines and hospitality that is unparalleled… That‘s the Palatinate. We were there again.

Pomegranates are power fruits, they spice up every salad. In this recipe, you use pomegranate syrup instead of the fresh seeds, so you avoid the annoying pitting of the pomegranate. This exotic oriental salad – together with flatbread and hummus – is a great summer entree.

A touch of oriental cuisine in our kitchen. Turmeric, coriander, ginger, garlic, pistachios and dates are ready to give off their scent and the flavors of a thousand and one nights to tender chicken. A fine yoghurt-orange-sauce and a glass of Riesling – what more could you ask for?

Asparagus with vanilla hollandaise, garnished with lemon balm April 25th, 2019 | main dishes

Vanilla hollandaise with asparagus

At home, we love the first asparagus in the season quite classically with smoked ham, Sauce Hollandaise and the first new potatoes. But then we love to have varieties. Since my dearest captain always likes to bring home the very best vanilla from his travels, there is nothing better than refining a hollandaise with it.
