My first restaurant review on this blog will focus on a Hungarian restaurant in Chemnitz (Germany), the city where I currently study. The aim of my reviews is to evaluate restaurants from a student's perspective and to encourage students to try new and different dishes from a variety of cultures.
Happy New Year everybody! I am wishing you all the best for the New Year :)
Tonight is New Year's Eve, and I invited some friends over. I decided to make a little buffet and this lovely cake is part of it. It is really easy to make, and the chocolate-cream icing gives it a special touch.
Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you're having a lovely time with family and friends. I made mince pies for my family and they loved it. The recipe is quick and easy; you're done in about 30 minutes. Enjoy!
I returned from Cameroon two weeks ago. I had such a great time there :) I've eaten a lot of exotic food, but this recipe is one that you can easily make in your kitchen. I've eaten it when I visited the university, and it is really refreshing and delicious.
There is no real recipe for the salad; I just make it up as I go. Just give it a try and adapt it to your taste. You will need tomatoes, cucumber, pineapple, onions, avocado and mayonnaise. Dice all the veg and mix it well. Then add some mayonnaise and season to taste. That's it! Enjoy :)
Dear lads and lasses :)
I am currently on a research trip to Cameroon until 23 November 2014. I won't have regular internet access, so updating the blog will be difficult. I will try to post whenever I have time, but I can't promise anything.
I hope to collect a lot of recipes for you :)
See you all soon,
Today I was really busy with my term paper, but I needed some time off. So, what do you do when you want to procrastinate? Right, baking ;)
I made this lovely cinnamon pull-apart bread. It is similar to the cheese and onion one I made some weeks ago. Thus, you will find two recipes here in the end. One is for a savoury loaf, which is best served with some sour cream. And the one I made today is for tea time. Now you have to decide which to test first :)
I am just making dinner and thought I share it with you. I had a real craving for fish. Moreover, I had some spinach and tomatoes in the fridge. I browsed some cookery books to get some ideas and then I just gave it a go :)
I decided to make salmon on a bed of spinach and tomatoes. Wow, sounds fancy!
Just heat the spinach with some onions and garlic gloves. Season to taste and put in an ovenproof dish. Slice some small and sweet tomatoes and put on the spinach. Season again of needed. Place the salmon on top of the vegetables and drizzle with olive oil and lemon juice. I like lemon a lot, so I decided to place a slice of lemon on each piece of fish. Now it goes for 15-25 minutes (200°C) in the oven.
Just one word: DELICIOUS!!!
Some of my experiments failed horribly, but this dish is just fantastic.
The sweet tomatoes counterbalance the bitter spinach, and the lemon makes the salmon even more flavoursome.
You can vary the recipe according to your needs and tastes.
But please promise me to try it. You will fall in love with it instantly :)
I've found this recipe in a British cookery book, but I doubt that it is very British at all. I assume it was brought to Britain by immigrants from India or Sri Lanka.
Still, it makes a great dessert on hot days, and my friends really enjoyed it.
This article was the final piece I had to write for my journalistic writing course.
The aim was to write a feature story which is related to my blog. I decided to interview my grandparents about German cuisine during the Second World War.
I hope you enjoy it :)
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.
