Sauce Bolognese

I noticed different reactions by people in Europe vs US when I tell them that one of my hobbies is cooking. In Europe they will ask me: “Which country’s cuisine do you prefer cooking?” In US: “What’s your signature dish?” Well, it is easier for me to answer the first question, because it is fairly…

Cherry Cake

Sometimes best things happen when you have left overs …you can be creative and invent a new dish or you immediately know that you have enough left over stuff that will suffice for a certain recipe. Latter one was the case when I had some left over pickled cherries…. and I indeed had the perfect…

Warsaw for the lazy…

I love city trips. But I’m not the Hop-On/Hop-Off bus tourist or the nerdy museum visitor. Don’t get me wrong, everyone has their own travel style. Whilst it may be fun for people to drive around with a guide (which is great if you don’t have plenty of time and want to get an overview…

Rozana

It is already time to decorate my roof top terrace, plant new flowers and set up the outdoor furniture… Spring is here! But before it’s getting too warm, I still have to complete one mission: Telling you about my weekend in Warsaw, because when I’ve been there it was cold and freezing outside. Especially when…

Red Wine Cake

Sometimes it feels akward to share family recipes – they are  so precious that I feel I need to keep them top secret 🙂 … this is what I also had in mind when baking lately my mother’s Red Wine Cake. But since I am blogging about what I am cooking, baking and, yes, also…

Pasta with Prawns, Asparagus & Spinach

Now that the weather is getting better and spring is knocking on the door, I feel like sharing a recipe of a simple and quick Pasta dish that I usually do when it’s summer – because it goes well with white wine and even tastes better if served outside under a star lit sky.  …

Tin Lung Heen

Great view from the one of the best restaurants in China based on the 102nd floor at the Ritz Carlton in the current tallest building of Hong Kong. But not for me 😦 I had mentioned in one of my earlier posts that I was also sick while being in Hong Kong. Don’t worry, it…

Hearty Beef Stew

What is comfort food to you? For me it can be many things: Burger & French Fries, Rice with Curry, Pasta Bolognese, Ramen or Sio Pao -just to name a few. A little while ago I made a classic comfort food dish – a Beef Stew – for three reasons: It was cold outside, it…

Bo Innovation

Phenomenal! Perfect! And totally worth it! I could stop right here with the whole post. Even if there are many more things to say about my food experience at Bo Innovation, a 3 Star Michelin Restaurant (!) – my first one by the way – this sums it up. But don’t worry: I’m going to…

Chinese New Year in Hong Kong

I came back from my trip to Hong Kong two weeks ago, but have been too busy to write about this cool trip until now. I booked this trip not only because my last time to HK had been when I was a 6 yrs old child and I wanted to catch up with this…
