Hete Bliksem – This is heaven!

‘Hete Bliksem’ is my all time favourite Dutch dish! ‘Hot lightning’ as it’s called in English is a delightful combination of potatoes, apples & beef. Still, the secret ingredients are actually cinnamon & honey. What follows is a slightly simplified version, so if you’re a real dutch (wo)man, don’t expect this to be what your […]

Simple dairy-free carrot cake

Technically speaking, every time you use honey, your recipe is no longer vegan. Funny, don’t you think? So, this time – as I used honey, I also decided to add an egg. I also tried to follow a recipe I found online, but felt a deep urge to replace basically all the important ingredients. There […]

Ida Frosk: Eat Your Art Out

Somehow I really believe that thanks to Instagr.am our food nowadays looks much better than it used to just some years ago. It’s all about food staging and making it pretty, don’t you think? While the food I tempt to serve looks nice, what Ida Frosk makes out of her groceries is what I’d call real […]

Happy birthday, Lene! Enjoy your banana cake with peanutbutter frosting!

As already mentioned, I’ve recently moved to Berlin. This is really amazing, because for the first time in ages, I get to live in an apartment with a fully equipped kitchen and an oven (!). For the last, I believe, 7 years or so, I always managed to move into places without an oven. For […]

PAMK – A foodie exchange!

Do you remember chain letters from the time when we were little? The beauty of getting something from someone you didn’t know? Some weeks ago, I’d signed up for “Post aus meiner Küche” which is a wonderful exchange initiative for enthusiastic foodies.

Minifeasting in Utrecht & why we’ve been so quiet

It feels like ages since we last blogged here. Truth is, we got incredibly busy in the last couple of weeks. Between moving, finalizing a master thesis and enjoying a little bit of sunshine we are still trying to tight the knots & agree on some parts of the design. There are a few more […]

Dumpster feasting (Also known as dumpster diving)

What can I say? Well, it’s a topic that is getting more and more attention in Europe. Although it’s trendiness may have peaked and wained in North America, it is still buzz worthy in Oslo. Some people may shudder in disgust at the mere thought of hunting through trash for edibles, but, I just could […]
