Mushroom risotto, simple, vegetarian, delicious

January 20th, 2018 | main dishes

Looking for a special mushrooms variety of really high quality, you will find it on the most beautiful of all Hamburg weekly markets, the Isemarkt. At the booth of Tarik Baltaci, the selection is huge. Mushrooms with fine-sounding names and wonderful flavors are waiting for the buyer: rose and almond mushrooms, cauliflower mushrooms, autumn trumpets, Pom Pom Blanc. And Tarik’s friendly and expert advice are free there! Fancy a mushroom risotto?

For this risotto Tarik recommended porcini mushrooms, almond mushrooms and chestnut mushrooms – and it was simply delicious! The very, very delicate almond scent and taste was really special. Of course, other mushrooms can be used instead depending on the season and what is offered. King oyster mushrooms for example are available all year round and taste very well in the risotto.

Black gondola with gondolier on a canal in Venice August 4th, 2018 | Landgänge

Shore leave Venice

The early bird catches the Venetian worm. Between 6 and 10 am, the lagoon city shows up the most beautiful – before the endless tourist-lindworm rolls over the Rialto Bridge and overflows the famous St. Mark’s Square. “Early in the morning and late in the evening, you can enjoy Venice’s morbid charm and unique atmosphere the best,” the captain recommends.

Hamburg Brown Biscuits for 3rd Advent

The advent dream of my childhood: the original Hamburg Brown Biscuits.
