Rhubarb sour cream cake

April 23rd, 2018 | bread & pastries

As children, in spring we held the huge rhubarb leaves from Grandmother’s garden like elephant ears and found it hilarious. At some point, our kids had the same fun on the giant leaves with the red stalk. And so are the photos from childhood days similar from generation to generation

Rhubarb sour cream cake

Rhubarb unfortunately does not thrive in my garden. What a pity! How I would like to cook – like my grandmother – strawberry-rhubarb jam, rhubarb compote and red fruit jelly with the beautiful red stalks from my own garden. Fortunately, you can now buy rhubarb again at the markets: regionally and seasonally, as we like it.

The following rhubarb cake tastes particularly good the next day, when it is well pulled through – ideal for guests!

Vanilla Quince

Quinces are childhood memory for me. Grew up on the North Sea every summer we visited our grandparents in the Odenwald, a German low mountain range. In their (kitchen) garden they grew a quince tree in addition to many other fruit trees. Plums, apples, pears, we also had in our garden at home, but I had never seen quinces in North Germany. I thought they were unique in my grandparents‘ garden. Grandma Anna’s quince jelly was my favourite!

Tokaj wine at Árpád-hegy Pince vineyard in Szerencs/Ungarn October 19th, 2018 | Landgänge

Tokaj wine tasting with Adam Varkoly

Our trip to Budapest also took us to Hungary’s most famous wine-growing region, the Tokaj region. There we met a young Hungarian winemaker full of esprit, Ádám Varkoly. If you think Tokaj wines have to be sweet and full-bodied, Ádám will quickly teach you a lesson. His winery Árpád-hegy Pince in Szerencs also produces wonderful, dry wines from Furmint.

T-bone steak fried in the pan – that’s how it works

You only need four things: the excellent quality steak, pepper, salt and a cooking thermometer. So far so good. Everything is there. But frankly, I’d never fried a T-bone steak myself before. So we got the advice of a chef friend from the cruise. Lo and behold: It’s very easy and the result is stunning!
