Kale with Potato Waffles and ham

Kale with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

November 2nd, 2017 | main dishes

When I was a child I did not like kale. I qualified this statement when I travelled to Shanghai and tasted sea cucumbers. Today I eat kale, but I still don’t like our traditional German way to prepare kale. Too fat, too ugly, too heavy. And then this sausage called „Pinkel“?!? Last autumn I gave kale a second chance. I must admit it’s a very tasty vegetable. It’s only a matter of how to prepare it. Try this.

min. 100 air-dried ham (Serrano or Parma ham or Coppa di Parma)

The potato waffles may also be served with a simple tomato sauce and Parmesan. A bruschetta prepared of diced tomatoes, diced Mozzarella cheese, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and Mediterranean herbs is also perfect wih the waffles.

Venison steak with chilli and blackberry sauce August 20th, 2020 | main dishes

Venison steak with chilli and blackberry sauce

After collecting blueberries and mushrooms on my hikes over the past few weeks, now the blackberries are ripe. They’re plentiful this year, and they’re sun-kissed and sugar-sweet. I processed my harvest into a very fine sauce for the venison steak. Chilli, ginger, red and port wine and the fruity sweetness of blackberries – the sauce is really phantastic…

New publication: “I love quinces”

Captain’s dinner publishes recipes in the new cookbook! Quinces are a (almost) forgotten fruit. Hardly anyone knows or uses this fruit today. Markus Wittur is committed to the preservation of ancient varieties of quince. The Franconian “Quince Savior” has published a unique and very personal recipe collection on this golden yellow fruit with a special, so beguiling scent. I’m glad that my recipes and photos are represented in this book.
