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.

Gratinated sauerkrat rolls February 21st, 2020 | main dishes

Pasta & Sauerkraut – why not?

The sauerkraut classic from Max and Moritz – who doesn’t know it? My recipe for sauerkraut rolls, however, doesn’t have much to do with the hearty, heavy and “typically German” side dish of knuckle and meat loaf. Homemade pasta dough wraps the vitamin-packed sauerkraut – and if you leave out the bacon, it’ll even be vegetarian!

Breton galettes with goat merguez and pepper cream

Fine food from France! In Brittany, the thin pancakes made from nutty buckwheat flour are often served with savory fillings, such as a spicy Merguez sausage. Raisins, mint and parsley together with the creamy-fruity pepper sauce balance the spiciness of the merguez. Vive la France!

Canarian Macaronesian White Gin February 15th, 2018 | Landgänge

Macaronesian Gin – summer in a glass

Most people like to bring some holiday souvenir back home. Our case is usually full with sausage and cheese from local markets and sometimes we bring also a bottle of wine. On Tenerife, we spontaneously packed a bottle of gin and two glasses as souvenirs. Macaronesian Gin. To be honest, I didn’t even know exactly then, what is meant by ‘Macaronesian’.
