Hyperbels concert at Maa' Deyo

Maa' Deyo "Hyperbels" - Hamburg has a new stage

December 10th, 2022 | on the road

A new event space was opened in the basement of the Maa’ Deyo restaurant last Thursday. At the “Hyperbels Concert Evenings” the finest free improvisation and free jazz is played in an intimate setting with a maximum of 30 visitors, while South American fusion cuisine is celebrated upstairs. Great!

Maa' Deyo Maa' Deyo

At Maa’ Deyo, Cristián Orellanus combines culinary delights with art and culture. So it is not surprising that, in addition to his excellent cuisine, he also exhibits art objects and pictures, and has recently started a series of concerts.

In the basement of his restaurant Maa’ Deyo he has created something wonderful: once a month the co-promoter and double bass player John Hughes, who lives in Hamburg, invites you to free jazz at his Hyperbeln concert evenings. At the opening of the series, together with tenor saxophonist Tobias Delius, he set the audience in motion.

The atmosphere in Maa’ Deyo’s jazz cellar is dim – countless candles illuminate the location, it’s cosy, intimate, there’s barely room for 30 people. The music comes focused, concentrated, in the bomb shelter charm of the room. You are catapulted out of this world very quickly, you feel safe in this enclave, this cocoon.

In this small location, the bass goes straight to your stomach, you sit a maximum of five meters from the stage: bass, clarinet, saxophone – wow… like upstairs in Maa’ Deyo. The aromas also go their direct way – into the stomach, into the heart, into the soul.

The next Free Jazz Night at Maa’ Deyo will take place on January 26, 2023. Tickets are available on 040 20918649 or for 15 euros.

Spaghetti with seafood a la Carmen

Spaghetti frutti di mare, Espagueti con Mariscos, Spaghetti mit Meeresfrüchten, Spaghetti aux Fruits de Mer – fine sounding names for a wonderful dish. We liked it especially in the restaurant “Enriclai” in St. Cruz de La Palma, and we asked Doña Carmen for the recipe.

Lueneburg Heath, break at Heidschnucken trail, flowers and hiking boots July 17th, 2018 | Landgänge

On foot: 120 kilometers on the “Heidschnucken” trail

Just put the backpack on, lock the front door and see how far you can walk in six days. We made it from Hamburg-Fischbek to Soltau. Across the northern Lüneburg Heath – on the so-called “Heidschnucken Trail” [Heidschnucke is a group of moorland sheep from northern Germany]. Just walk, eat, sleep. Mobile phone only for emergencies, no I-pad, no appointment book.

Kale with Potato Waffles and ham November 2nd, 2017 | main dishes

Kale with air-dried ham and warm potato waffles

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.
