Tasty baked fennel with mozzarella

I consider fennel the most underestimated vegetable. It’s one of the veggies you hardly ever put into your shopping cart, but me, I once did. I found a recipe online and the picture looked so tasty and inviting that I really could not help but try. Back then, I lived in a shared apartment in Utrecht […]

Minifeasting in Berlin

Isn’t this world of social media a funny thing?! Melanie and I have a special talent for talking over each other. She says something, […]

Those of you who follow us on Instagram already got a sneak peek of a lovely book that I have not been able to put down since receiving. It really is that special. I first laid eyes upon this lovely book several months ago at our dear friend Robocup‘s home, and have not stopped thinking […]

What’s the big secret?

I was never really any good when I had to cook according to recipe books. The fact that I’m much too inpatient follow a recipe from beginning to end, might have something to do with it. I’ve always preferred to freestyle, it’s just my way. This sometimes worked quite well; sometimes ended with a mess of ingredients […]

Feinkoch – For clueless & busy food lovers

“The cheaper the better.“ What a dreadful way to think. But, that was everyone’s motto until quite recently. Groceries were supposed to be as inexpensive as possible, even if imported from far away. Defying seasonality for less than a euro. Sounds much too familiar, doesn’t it? It seems to me that this is finally starting […]

Bärlauch pesto, there you go!

So now it’s my turn to wow you, lovely Sam. With this recipe made from an ingredient you didn’t even know existed! Bärlauch. They call it wild garlic in English, but it really only exists in continental Europe and parts of Asia. I don’t believe it is possible that you have ever even heard of […]

Addicted to Saturdays

Hello, it’s Monika again. If I should say I have a favorite day of the week, I’d say it is Saturday. As I’m more an early bird than a night owl, I very much enjoy leaving home at a time when most are still soundly asleep. I’m always happy to take care of the grocery […]

Tasty pancakes with maple syrup

Hello, It was one of those kitchen conversations. One of those where you simply must admit your short comings. With me (Monika), it is pancakes. Well, at least the Austrian kind. Real Austrian pancakes must be as thin as Crepes and served rolled up with apricot jam. A sprinkling of sugar on top. The batter […]
