Turnip stew - just delicious!
January 2nd, 2018 | main dishes
After all that festive roasts and gourmet buffets we feel like cooking something pretty simple. Outside it’s cold and dark and new year still seems to be a bit unreal and strange. Could there be anything better than a fine warming stew with an almost forgotten vegetable, the turnip?
Many people consider turnips to be cattle feed, whereas older people don’t like to remember this vegetable because during World War I and II often it was the only available food. I’d love to see this vegetable getting popular again!
(Serves 8 – Stewing time: ca. 1.5 hours – Preparing time: ca 30 minutes)

Spaetzle homemade – there is nothing better
Spaetzle is a special German pasta. Of course, you can buy dried spaetzle, but I’m afraid they have nothing to do with fresh, home-made ones. Anyone who knows the taste of fresh spaetzle, never wants others again. So fluffy, so juicy, so delicious. Here’s the basic recipe.read more
