Why always dumplings, spaetzle or potatoes? Polenta slices are an ideal accompaniment to all stews and all dishes with a good sauce. In the past, polenta was considered “poor people” food. Today it finds its way into our kitchen. OK then!

Fried polenta slices

The corn meal with the name “Polenta” is incredibly versatile and was already popular with the ancient Romans – can only be good 😉  It can be processed into dumplings, porridge, slices or fillings. Today I’m going to show you how to make fried polenta slices.

I use instant polenta. It is pre-cooked and therefore only needs about 5 minutes to cook. That is practical. Check the package insert to see how long the cooking time is for the respective product. It is also good to know that the polenta slices can be easily frozen. Defrost, fry in butter until golden brown, enjoy.

Schupfnudeln – Autumn Soulfood

“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.

Red cabbage as a winter stock

Red cabbage is certainly one of the classics among the autumnal-wintery vegetables in our German cuisine and I can’t imagine roast goose, game or roulades without it. In this post, I’ll tell you my recipe and how to stock up for the whole winter. Cook once, serve red cabbage six times – and that’s easy.

Pasta a la Mamma

Home-made pasta, there is nothing better. Soft wheat semolina is the magic word. I was in a small shop for Italian food. At checkout the older grumbled something grouchy, (which must be resulting from living in Northern Germany…) owner: “Pasta? You don’t figure it out anyway.” On the question of whether he was this opinion because I’m not Italian, he replied unmoved: “My wife tried for 40 years, so you will not get out even there.” Allora! Per favore!
