Schupfnudeln - Autumn Soulfood

October 25th, 2018 | main dishes

“Schupfnudeln” is a typical German dish. We talk about fingershaped dumplings made of potoatoes. This recipe combines these dumplings with minced meat and apples – very simple. But often the simple dishes are the most popular ones. Especially with children. Same with our stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apples. Our son and daughter have been crazy about this dish since childhood. Apple and horseradish anyhow are a perfect pair, endive salad as a vegetable and a quick horseradish dip provide the freshness kick.

Important in the preparation is to fry the apples for a very short time at the end, otherwise they will fall apart. Then, it still tastes good, but it does not look that nice anymore.

Stir-fried Schupfnudeln with apple and minced meat

3 ts grated horseradish (fresh or out of the glass)
200 g sour cream
salt, pepper from the mill

3 TS cooking oil
fry the meat in the hot oil

100 ml meat stock (preferably homemade)

Norway lobster, raw, next to Venetian Cicchetti August 13th, 2018 | Landgänge

Cicchetti in Venice

To begin with, I honestly thought what the Venetian’s hype about those “sandwiches” would be. They name it Crostini, that is Canapées – more or less. Today I know: You have to get involved in it and enjoy Cicchetti like the tapas in Spain with a walk through several wine bars in Venice. Then you get behind it very quickly, what makes the special charm of these hearty little things.
