On schedule for summer time and handy for the heat I made you a cocktail. As you might recognize there might be some similarities with the old hugo due to its name. The similarity is elder. But that’s already it, since the grand hugo needs elderberry syrup (elderberry juice is ok as well). Some time ago I got a sample package with different elder drinks. I was really impressed with […]

As promised, here’s the link to the German article in the Stuttgarter Zeitung about local food bloggers: Männer kochen anders – Frauen auch

Actually I wanted to blog more asparagus recipe this season, but I just didn’t manage to do it! Soon the asparagus season will be over again, but maybe this year it will be delayed a bit, because it was so cold and rainy? I would love that, since it was more difficult to get green asparagus this year. This recipe is amongst our favourite ones with green asparagus. It’s from […]

I already posted it on facebook and twitter, but I know a lot of you don’t follow me there 😉 and since newspapers are only available for one day… Tomorrow I’ll be featured in the Stuttgarter Zeitung along with somer other local food bloggers. So if you are located in Stuttgart you can read about me and my blog in it! The article should also be available online. As soon […]

In the end of june I’ll be visiting Alsace, more precisely Colmar and Burgundy in the direction of Chalon-sur-Saône, maybe over the French Jura. I’m so looking forward to this.

It shouldn’t be too expensive and preppy, just good solid French food. […]

There are a lot of box subscriptions possible these days. And the contents do not always agree with promises of the consigner. I had good and bad experiences already. I also don’t want to have useless stuff at home, which I don’t use. I’m not just talking about stuff I don’t need, because it’s redundant, but also products from big companies with disgusting ingredients, listed in every supermarket. Because if […]

For a long time I wanted to show how I make my stocks and broths. I don’t buy granulated broths anymore. I make vegetable, chicken, beef and game stock myself. So I avoid all these additives, which I don’t want in my food. The best thing about homemade broths is, that you can make delicious sauces and gravies and dishes taste so much better. The first risotto I used homemade […]

asparagus, mushrooms, bell pepper, potatoes, celeriac, leek, arugula and carrots (forgotten)
