International Cooking in Our Kitchen in Germany
We have been cooking international cuisine together for more than 30 years and recently decided that it would be good to have a place to share our many recipes and cooking experiences. It may well be that the world does not need another food blog, but that won’t stop us now. So please feel free to join us as we wind our way through the world of fine cuisine.
In this time of fast food and fast living we lose the valuation and appreciation of fine dining. ´This applies to daily meals, not just to entertaining guests. It is, however, not necessary to spend hours or days in the kitchen preparing a meal, nor is it necessary to spend large amounts of money. Instead, we can try to refine the preparation and presentation of the food we serve. How can we improve our dining experience without increasing daily stress or bursting the budget? The answer is two-fold: Simplify complex recipes and embellish simple ones.
If you look at the pasta dish below you may be surprised to learn that it took less than 20 minutes to prepare. A slice of pancetta or bacon, a pound of mushrooms, some garlic and white wine, a little cream, prepared while the pasta is cooking, and you have a delicious meal that looks beautiful on the plate. With a small amount of fantasy you can turn an every day dish into something special. We will bring you recipes for tuna salad, curry rice, pancakes, meat sauces, fish, meat and poultry pies, pasta dishes, risottos, desserts and many more, all that can be prepared in reasonable time frames and without having to visit specialty shops.
Dining is a very important social experience. The quality of the experience at the dinner table is a reflection of the quality of the food and the intentionality that went into its preparation. It may be simply the difference of eating a piece of toast out of ones hand and serving the toast on an attractive plate. We hope you will enjoy our suggestions and wish you much enjoyment in the kitchen and at the table.
