Show-Cooking auf der Frankfurter Buchmesse

Show-Cooking – and I did not shed any tears

November 28th, 2017 | collaboration

„In the show kitchen of Frankfurt book fair it smelled like garlic and vanilla at the same time. It was mouthwatering for the people sitting in front of the cooking area.“ These are the opening words of an article of the December issue of health food magazine „Schrot & Korn“ about my performance in the Gourmet Gallery at Frankfurt book fair. The issue will be published on November 28th, it is available gratis in all German organic markets. And I did not shed any tears at all.

Show-Cooking – and I did not shed any tears Show-Cooking – and I did not shed any tears

„Schrot & Korn“ is a German health food magazine the name means something like whole grain & corn. They have been at this year’s book fair in Frankfurt for the first time and they made a competion: Topic was avoiding food waste and they looked for the best recipes using old or stale bread. The authors of the two best recipes were invited to cook in the show kitchen of the Gourmet Gallery. One oft hem was me! That’s why I was allowed to cook my onion soup with bread together with bio-leading chef Christian Kolb in front of an audience.

Luckily I had Christian Kolb supporting me. He took over the professional onion chopping… Whoever cooked together with me, knows, that I am lost in sneeze and sniffle attacks when cutting onions. No chance, to perform this in front of an audience. A friend of us lately asked: „Astonishing, und you handed in a recipe for an onion soup?“

The complete article and the video can now be found online, my recipe here on my blog. Have fun cooking the onion soup!

24 hours Budapest

This rush was not even necessary during our visit to Budapest. After all, this was not a “shoreleave” of the usual kind. I mean, Budapest cannot be reached by cruise ships, and in all cases by river ships. But we were there simply on vacation, by plane. It’s our first time in Budapest and in Hungary. Invited by our dear friend, the ship’s doctor.

Turkey Skewers with Peach & Pimientos de Padron

Grill skewers with little meat, but with lots of vegetables and flavor! Here, the little Spanish peppers play the first violin. The sweetness of the peach softens the pepper sharpness a little bit. The aroma of the bay leaves gives these midsummer BBQ skewers the ultimate kick. Simply delicious.

Really wild wild herbs salad

What they sell on the domestic German markets as “wild asparagus” botanically is no asparagus. Of course wild asparagus exists, and I know it from my time in northern Spain, where we collected the wild asparagus in nature. Here in Germany, however, the flower sprouts of the Pyrenean Star of Bethlehem are offered under this term, mostly grown in France. And it is really delicious. Raw or steamed, it tastes very intense. For a wild herb salad a “snappy” enrichment.
