Fleischpastete "Pastel de Carne" nach einem spanischen Rezept

Meat pie "Pastel de Carne"

March 18th, 2019 | main dishes

In Spain, meatloaf is often prepared in a puff pastry crust. This recipe comes from northern Spain, more precisely from Galicia, a meat pie with raisins and pine nuts. The raisins soaked in sherry provide a juicy-aromatic taste.

Meat pie

The Spanish meat pie tastes well if cold or warm, so it is also suitable for a picnic or brunch. As a side dish a fresh green salad – just delicious.

Christmas Stollen December 8th, 2017 | bread & pastries

The Christmas Stollen Project

Christmas Stollen never played a role in my childhood. We rather preferred Hamburg brown cookies or spekulatius for our Christmas baking. Anyway, without Christmas Stollen Christmas in some places of Germany is not even imaginable…That’s the reason, why I found it always exciting. A heavy yeast dough with candied fruit, raisins and a dash of good rum. The Stollen must traverse several weeks (minimum two weeks) before you eat it – if you do manage to defend it against the family. Attention: This weekend is your last chance to bake a Stollen, which can be served “well matured” at Christmas on your coffee table. Otherwise, you must wait another year…
