Reunion Zucchini & Fennel Soup

There you go, time for a recipe again. I have no idea how this happened: almost a year has passed since the last post appeared here on minifeast. But now, it’s time to get back to posting because it’s become impossible for me to keep track of all my recipes I’ve cooked and served in […]

Let’s Bring Back Summer

Winter in Berlin isn’t much fun. It’s cold and grey and anything that brings back the feeling of summer is much appreciated. I decided to make the first step and try to bring some summer to our kitchen. One thing I’ve learned making this cake is that next time I won’t even try and sneak […]

Zucchini & Rosemary Loaf

I never thought baking with veggies could taste so awesome. Sweet but not too sweet seems like the perfect treat. I was a bit late to work on Monday, because I thought they might salt the streets before I hit the road. I really wanted to bike. As it turns out, it didn’t go as […]

Banana Bread for vegans with a sweet tooth

This is a slightly different kind of a minifeast story I guess; One that might describe life in Berlin a bit. A few nights ago we went out and on our way home we were joking about making banana bread for breakfast. I had a feeling what banana bread consists of and I figured that […]

Eggnog, because it’s Christmas!

It probably cannot get any more christmassy than with a glass of eggnog in your hand. I never thought how simple it is to actually make one. You might wonder how I got to think of making something that’s so old-fashioned, so utterly retro like the yellow stuff you used to get from your granny […]

Running Dinner in Friedrichshain

It’s already more than a week ago since Sarah & I participated in the Running Dinner here in Friedrichshain. Running Dinner was another great initiative by Polly & Bob. Just like minifeast’s concept, the idea of Polly & Bob’s Running Dinner was to cook for your neighbours; People you don’t quite know yet, even you probably […]

Chocolate-Raspberry Cake

I was tempted to say, that this is another one of our simple vegan recipes, but then I realised that there is a hidden Easter egg. Vinegar – now you might think I’m joking – is not vegan. Want to have a proof? Click here. If you’re still up for a delicious treat for which […]

Dairy-free lemon & anise muffins

There were some lemon leftovers from last time I baked muffins. Buying in bulks is the one thing I’m not necessarily a fan of. Those who cook for themselves will agree, that you’ll always end up having something to throw away at the end of the day. I was looking for some interesting recipes to […]

Polly & Bob’s Flashmeal

When I heard of Polly & Bob for the first time, the project immediately caught my eye. Their aim to bring people together and the way they do it, is impressively charming. Polly & Bob are here to make people talk, connect & share. Their first initiative was called ‘Singing Balconies‘, for which around 1.500 people gathered […]

Warm lemon & raspberry muffins for breakfast

Last night when I got home and opened the kitchen door, my flat mate had a cake ready and she said I could have some. I was really curious and asked what kind of cake it was. “Oh, it’s basically yours (Lene follows minifeast and I didn’t know that. Yay!), I just made it vegan.” Simply, […]
