"A star that carries your name"

March 11th, 2018 | main dishes

Then its name would be Captain’s star. No, it’s a pizza star with bacon, pear and goat camembert. Super easy, super tasty, and if you use a ready pizza dough from the refrigerated section, it’s even a Fast Food.

In times when we cannot travel due to the corona pandemic, why not bring a holiday feeling on our plate at home! Last weekend we were on a short culinary trip in Mexico, more precisely in Veracruz on the east coast of Mexico. A wonderful tuna fish with a fiery, colorful sauce awaited us and it was as if we were listening to the sounds of marimba and mariachi in the humid, warm evening air… Viva México!
