Breakfast Heaven in Paris

Sunday morning wearing my Frees. The rest of my team are still sleeping. I walk fast to Bastille, the spot where, I guess one could say, the French revolution started in 1789 (on the weddingday of my Parents), and where I just have to be every sunday morning when I visit Paris. The reason is the Farmers market. This was … Read More

Cooking Session – Pumpkin

Ladies night at Casa Ehrl in Tiergarten. Love the hallway. And I love our chaos. It was all about pumpkins. This is how you do it.

Cooked with Coconut, ginger and cinnamon.

This comment from Rahel during my 2 weeks in München in August provoked me quite a bit. How could I, after 11 years in Germany, have missed the best Dessert in the world, ever? [vimeo]http://vimeo.com/29650618[/vimeo] Of course I had to go to the bottom with this. I went on a little researchtrip to learn how to do it right. Hertha … Read More

die kleine Schwarze

The invitation to Oktoberfest in München couldn’t have come a a better time. I had been touring the south and even bought my first dirndl. I had made my research on the subject and visited Allgäu, Salzburg and Fischbachau to get the knowledge from the locals. No München bling bling please. I bought my dress in Vienna but it was … Read More
