Bifteki oder griechische Hacksteaks mit gegrillter Wassermelone

Bifteki with grilled watermelon

July 29th, 2018 | main dishes

Bifteki thats the Greek name for minced steaks. A short trip to Greece, that’s it. Currently, we do not have to complain in northern Germany about lack of sunshine. This summer, even the holiday on our balcony is fun. And with Bifteki from the grill, we get the ultimate culinary holiday feeling.

Classic style eggplant dip, aubergine with mozzarella and, of course, leaf salad with peach are just as popular with the minced steaks. The Greek meat rolls make a good figure in any combination! So, let’s go to the Greek evening on the terrace. Sure, that an iced ouzo must not be missed!

Cicchetti & Spritz in Venice November 19th, 2022 | Landgänge

Cicchetti & Spritz – this is Venice!

Venice offers cicchetti in an incredible range – from the very simple “cut” to the noble cicchetto, which almost means the effort of a small dish. But it’s not always just the cicchetti that create the experience, sometimes it’s certain originals behind the counter. For example Sam at Arcicchetti Bákaro near Piazzale Roma.

Chicken in Vermouth – finally again a Captain’s Dinner

We have Chicken in Vermouth when our family calendar is marked with two letters and a laughing smiley. There are also days marked with a crying one. The letters are the initials of my dearest, obvious what the emojis stand for: Signing off and on, that’s how it is called in shipping terms. It means to come home and to go aboard a ship. Today the emoji is beaming in our calendar! Time for Chicken in Vermouth!
