Asian salad freestyle - today they call it "Asia Bowl"

January 31st, 2019 | main dishes

Asian salad freestyle – why “freestyle”? We’ve had a wonderful recipe for Asian salad for ages, which we vary and change over and over again – today, it’s modern to use the English word ‘bowl’ in Germany. There are some components that have to be, such as rice noodles, fish sauce, soy sauce, rice vinegar – and many components that can, such as vegetables, mushrooms, cilantro, nuts and so on… Every time a surprise, what the fridge contains… Take heart and try out!

 Asian salad freestyle - today they call it

With this salad, you can let your cooking creativity run wild: Combine other vegetables with the salad or choose instead of chicken breast fish, shrimp or octopus, for example. Welcome to the kingdom of the thousand possibilities.

Weird to offer a recipe for a freestyle dish, I know. But I give it to you to have an idea at hand. This is how it always works!

Bolo de Caco aus Madeira February 21st, 2018 | bread & pastries

Madeira: Kebabs, Poncha and Bolo de CACO

We ate the best Bolo de Caco on the village square in Monte above Funchal on Madeira island. The atmosphere there was special. It was lunch time, we were – away from the hustle and bustle of basket sled tours and cableway – alone in the square, apart from some mangy dogs hanging around and taking sometimes a sluggish effort to chase a pigeon. And there we discovered BOLO DE CACO.

L’Édition musique N°3 – Geldermann and Cornelia Poletto bring food and music together

The Geldermann private sparkling wine cellar shows with its extraordinary art project, the Édition Musique, that this is very possible. “Sparkling Keys” is a tribute to a special cuvée, composed and arranged by two internationally acclaimed artists, pianist Joseph Moog and sound designer Kris Menace. Excellent finger food by Cornelia Poletto uniquely rounds off the evening in the Hamburg Jazz Hall.
