Delicate and juicy - beef
May 10th, 2018 | main dishes
Tafelspitz [boiled fillet] – Austrian cuisine’s classic. Needs a bit of time, but requires little work. And best of all, the beef stays super-juicy as it is cooked in broth. Together with asparagus or the Frankfurt Green Sauce a real Sunday roast.
The cap of rump you use for this recipe is a high-quality part of the tail of beef, which is covered on one side with a layer of fatty tissue. These should not be removed under any circumstances! Important in preparation: Put the meat in boiling water to close the pores. In case you put it in cold water, the meat leaches and loses its aroma.
I prefer boiled fillet with green sauce or horseradish sauce. Also for guests, because you can prepare the meat without problems the day before and then warm in the broth again.
Great side effect: You have at the same time a nice meat broth, which you can freeze until further use. Two birds with one stone, so to speak
(4 portions – note: the meat must simmer for 2.5 hours)

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!read more
Shore leave Madeira
Madeira is a beautiful island. A paradise for hikers, plant lovers and peace seekers at any time of the year. The sporty alternative to cable car and basket sleigh ride is a walking distance from the ship to Cabo Girão – or (not quite as athletic) to Câmara de Lobos, the most beautiful fishing village of the island. Here you can read the captain’s shore leave recommendation: “Three walks in Madeira”read more
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.read more
