A few weeks ago in London I was interviewed by Pretty Little London for an interview about my (mainly) foodie life in London. Read the full interview on Pretty Little London’s blog!

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 20 March 2017

I collaborated with one of my favorite health food brands in Germany, Veganz, for today’s blogpost, using their “pulled soja“ to make a vegan burger feast. But there’s more than burgers – et voilà, today’s recipe: Vegan pulled soja burgers with coleslaw and crunchy sweet potato fries!

Lemon “quark“ pancakes with rhubarb orange compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 14 March 2017

Back in Germany I can’t help but being particularly happy about a few things, three of them being bread, cheese – and “quark“. I can’t get enough of the fat-free protein bomb and made a stack of deliciously fluffy pancakes with it on the weekend. Together with this year’s first rhubarb it’s been a breakfast for champions! Here’s a new recipe for you today: lemon “quark“ pancakes with rhubarb orange compote!

And so a new chapter begins (also: a day trip to Burg Eltz and Cochem)

Posted in: Lifestyle · 11 March 2017

The past few weeks have been pretty overwhelming for me, and more then overwhelming they were exhausting, physically and emotionally. I only just realise this now, as I sit down on the train home after a day trip to Burg Eltz and Cochem (see more below) and, well, just sit. I didn’t really have time to do that for a while, and I also didn’t want to make a big thing out of it at first; but as I can reflect on things easiest while writing them down, I wanted to share this post with you today anyway.

Homemade gnocchi with potatoes and parsnips with crispy sage butter

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 1 March 2017

It’s been a bit of a manic week for me: Not only did I move houses, I moved houses twice – firstly in London and then, a day later, in Hamburg. It’s the beginning of a new chapter, I am beyond excited, but also very exhausted. I assume I won’t have the time to come up with a new recipe for the blog this week, but as it’s the first day of a new month today, I am excited to share with you another recipe for my food column for Mio magazine! Here you go: Homemade gnocchi with potatoes and parsnips and crispy sage butter!

A day in Balham, and Moroccan food at Tagine Balham

Posted in: London, Places · 20 February 2017

I’m a South London girl, however, due to the lack of underground lines in this part of town, I happen to not be in the South west very often. Thankfully I have friends though who are as much into food and coffee as I am, so I got to explore the lovely area of Balham last week and had delicious Moroccan food at Tagine Balham.

Baked squash with lentils and a sun-dried tomato pesto

Posted in: Food, Main courses · 17 February 2017

This recipe has been one of my contributions for “Mio“ magazine, but I have not posted it on the blog yet. Sadly, that is – because it is one of my all-time favourite squash recipes, consisting of oven-baked squash, al dente cooked lentils, a zingy tomato pesto and – perhaps the best part – a dollop of creamy goat’s cheese. Et voilà: Baked squash with lentils and a sun-dried tomato pesto. Happy Friday!
