Fancy small Greece vacation?
April 9th, 2018 | main dishes
Who would not like to exchange the unstable German April weather for a few days in Greece… My tip, for those who cannot start such a trip at the moment: conjure up some sun on your table with a sea bass on okra pods. Now it’s going to be Greek!
The fish seller of our confidence offered us two beautiful sea bass. Wonderful, now we just bring a few okras, tomatoes and peppers home from the market, and the Greece break can begin.
Sea bass on okra pods
And this is how the wife of the captain does it:
Vanilla is a wonderful spice and so precious that I put the scratched vanilla pods in a tin of brown sugar. The sugar adopts the vanilla flavor very quickly and I use it as spice for sauces, vegetables, soups – just for everything! And of course, I also use this vanilla sugar for baking.

Spaetzle homemade – there is nothing better
Spaetzle is a special German pasta. Of course, you can buy dried spaetzle, but I’m afraid they have nothing to do with fresh, home-made ones. Anyone who knows the taste of fresh spaetzle, never wants others again. So fluffy, so juicy, so delicious. Here’s the basic recipe.read more
Stuffed Roscoff onions
Onions – in my kitchen nothing works without them. But whoever believes that one tastes like the other has not yet tasted Roscoff onions. The “l’oignon rosé” from Brittany, or Roscoff at Finistère in northwestern Brittany, is so fine and aromatic in taste that it easily becomes the main actor on the plate, for example as a stuffed onion.read more
Piedmontese chocolate pudding with vanilla quince
A beautiful and strong coffee, anyone? Then, after a substantial meal, this specialty from the Piedmont is the right! In Piedmont, this pudding is called also Bonèt, because its form probably reminds something to a hat or a chef’s hat. Another story around the Bonèt comes from the Langhe. It states that one puts so to speak “a hat” – a crown – on dinner with this dessert. Anyhow, it tastes excellently and even better when prepared the day before. Incredibly handy when you expect guests.
PS: The Vanilla Quinces are a perfect match!read more
