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.

Ground Elder Tarte – by no means weeds!
Ground elder, the weed known as “gardener’s fright”, is considered ineradicable. What can be done about it? Just eat it! Ground elder is delicious (and so healthy) in salads, as lemonade, pesto or – as in my recipe – as ground elder tarte.read more
It does not always have to be a leg or saddle of venison: lasagna with roe is a special, classy pasta dish. Deer meat is layered and baked with vegetables, good spices, a fine Riesling sauce, pasta and Taleggio cheese.read more
Chicken in Vermouth – finally again a Captain’s Dinner
We have Chicken in Vermouth when our family calendar is marked with two letters and a laughing smiley. There are also days marked with a crying one. The letters are the initials of my dearest, obvious what the emojis stand for: Signing off and on, that’s how it is called in shipping terms. It means to come home and to go aboard a ship. Today the emoji is beaming in our calendar! Time for Chicken in Vermouth!read more
