I am a real bargain hunter and love to go to boot sales or flea markets. Of course, I am always on the look-out for old cookery books and collected a few over the years. My plan is to introduce some of the old recipes here on my blog. So, let's get started with a typical German fish dish: marinated herring. I found the recipe in a book for girls' schools, which was published in 1938. It is one of the dishes that did not change over time and never went out of fashion. Nowadays, it is prepared in the same way as 77 years ago.
Let's get started: the first delicious British meal is fishcakes. I've eaten them quite a lot in Manchester, but never tried my hands on making them by myself. The basic recipe for these fishcakes is from Jamie's Great Britain, but I adapted it a bit to make it even better ;) The interesting idea of this recipe is to roast and not to fry the cakes. It is less messy and you can make the fishcakes well in advance.
I am a student and a passionate cook. I fell in love with food in my childhood when I helped my mom and granny in the kitchen. Today, I especially enjoy cooking British food, but on my blog you will also find a variety of other international dishes.
