Support your local craftsmen: pottery by Hartmud (and some words on my breakfast routine)

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Frankfurt, Places · 23 May 2017

A few weeks ago I got to know Jérôme and Isa from the art collection Hartmud, who creates beautiful handmade ceramics in their Frankfurt-based studio. I am introducing you to some of their items on the blog today, and am also talking about granola – certainly one of the best things out there, besides avocado and poached eggs, of course!

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!

Throwback to a week in the mountains – and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Sweet stuff · 10 January 2017

Hi 2017! Hi new plans, challenges, resolutions and energy! I spent New Year’s Eve in the mountains, in Tyrol in Austria, where the sun shined bright, the sky couldn’t have been any bluer and the fresh air cleared out the head entirely high up in 3,000 metres. I’m back in London now, but extend the holiday feeling as much as I can let’s indulge in some amazing Austrian food: Birchermüesli and homemade “kaiserschmarrn“ with apple compote. Good morning!

New video: Dairy-free oatmeal waffles with raw blueberry chia compote

Posted in: Breakfast, Food, Sweet stuff, Video · 11 December 2016

Hah, it’s not quite summery in London anymore, but when it still was, we filmed a little video on how to make dairy-free oatmeal waffles with raw blueberry chia compote. Clearly, they can be turned into a festive version, too, I believe! Check out today’s video on my Youtube channel and be inspired for your next waffle baking session.

Vegan chia pudding with caramelised figs

Posted in: Breakfast, Food · 11 November 2016

If you’re caught somewhere between the challenge of accepting that winter is here on one hand, and the need to make summer last longer on the other, then I’ve got something for you today: a delicious vegan breakfast that is vanilla-y and coconut-y (like summer, you know?), but which is also made with cinnamon-y sweet, soft and warm caramelised figs. Vegan chia pudding with caramelised figs – for anyone that is, like me, indecisive about whether to be happy that it’s cosy out there, or whether to just rebel against the cold.
