Asian salad

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!

Spaetzle, freshly prepared December 7th, 2018 | side dishes

Spaetzle homemade – there is nothing better

Spaetzle is a special German pasta. Of course, you can buy dried spaetzle, but I’m afraid they have nothing to do with fresh, home-made ones. Anyone who knows the taste of fresh spaetzle, never wants others again. So fluffy, so juicy, so delicious. Here’s the basic recipe.

Turkey Skewers with Peach & Pimientos de Padron

Grill skewers with little meat, but with lots of vegetables and flavor! Here, the little Spanish peppers play the first violin. The sweetness of the peach softens the pepper sharpness a little bit. The aroma of the bay leaves gives these midsummer BBQ skewers the ultimate kick. Simply delicious.

Discovery tour Palatinate Part 1

We had planned a hiking week in the Palatinate vineyards for long. Unfortunately, in 2018 we could not realize it. At the invitation of the Palatinate wine marketing association Pfalzwein e. V., we had the chance to experience a Crash Course Palatinate at the beginning of November: Six wine shops, 13 winegrowers and an “Autumn Fireplace Talk” in the evening – the Palatinate from South to North in just one day!
