Good news for everybody who didn’t win the baking book copy last week: today you have the chance to get a lovely touch! winter’s edition cup by Kahla Porzellan with Christmas & winter scenes from Santa Claus to more graphic designs like ice crystals. As you know, we visited the shop and café during the Food Blog Award tour, and it had been part of our prices to shop in the online-store. We were therefor very happy when the Thuringian porcelain manufacturer asked us whether our readers would like to have a cup, too…

Saint Nicholas Day Give-Away & Recipe – Weihnachtsbäckerei: Buch-Verlosung zum Nikolaus & Bärentatzen-Rezept

PY1A2126-1-5

Like in many other countries, people in Germany celebrate the „Nikolaustag“ on 6th December. Originally – and still – a day to remember Saint Nicholas, people today offer presents mainly to children (but also among adults). There’s many beautiful traditions like putting children’s boots outside at the doors, and Saint Nicholas will fill them overnight with lebkuchen and oranges. When I was a child, I always put some sugar cubes on a plate besides my boots for Saint Nicholas’ horses…

Time is flying fast these days with so much work to be done and few time for blogging.

And after having posted some pics of the first day already, there’s just one thing is missing now: to finally share the whole journey from chocolate design to burger battle with you.

Autumn Evening: Carbonara, Black Kale & White Truffles versus Banana & Almond Bread-Rolls – Herbst-Abend: Carbonara, Schwarzkohl & weiße Trüffeln versus Bananen-Mandel-Brötchen

coll-1-1

After a particularly long working week, “the morning after” often looks like this: the fridge is rather empty, but the longing for most rustic culinary treats is vast. This combinations sometimes ends up in culinary treats far beyond style and elegance, but full of heart & soul. Yesterday, for example, we had roasted St. Galler bread for a sandwich with roast potatoes, remains of some Gravlax, dill sauce, and fried eggs. Sounds strange, doesn’t it…

Baking (not so) Bad

PY1A1127-1

I’m not a very enthusiastic baker when it comes to baking bread; it’s more often than not „baking bad“ – any similarities with a well-known tv series are of course by accident ;-). However, when Arne lately came up with a plan to bake bread rolls after a recipe that he found on Youtube, I felt encouraged to pursue a coincidental project. Not long ago, we had discovered Swiss bread at an organic baker near-by that we liked a lot, and after some research I found out that the full name of this bread is St. Galler (which is a Canton in Switzerland).
