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!

Pescado a la Veracruzana – Mexican tuna

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!

Pasta a la Mamma

Home-made pasta, there is nothing better. Soft wheat semolina is the magic word. I was in a small shop for Italian food. At checkout the older grumbled something grouchy, (which must be resulting from living in Northern Germany…) owner: “Pasta? You don’t figure it out anyway.” On the question of whether he was this opinion because I’m not Italian, he replied unmoved: “My wife tried for 40 years, so you will not get out even there.” Allora! Per favore!

Matjes homestyle with apples we eat for hearty breakfast or we enjoy it as a main meal with fresh potatoes or a thick slice of black bread. How we prepare the matjes at home, you can read here:
