Campari Torte

Campari orange in white pantsuit

August 28th, 2018 |

Many years ago, I once met an elderly, chic lady in a white pantsuit on the pier of Usedom [island at the Baltic Sea]. She was sitting there enjoying a Campari orange. As she left, she stopped by our table, said what great kids we had, and left. That was a magical moment. Since then, I have dreamed of living in the house by the sea, drinking my Campari orange in my white pantsuit in the early evening. I’m still working on it. And until then there is the drink as a cake. My Campari cake is the cracker in the summer!

The mascarpone quark cream is summerly refreshing, and the slightly bitter Campari flavor is just right for hot summer days.

What does Ratatouille have in common with Frankfurt Green Sauce?

Granted, at first glance (or better: bite) not much. But surely there are infinitely many, different opinions about the “what” and “how” for both dishes. What exactly are the ingredients and how exactly is it prepared. One thing seems indisputable: tomatoes, aubergines, zucchini and peppers are a must, everything else can.
