I guess… if you like to cook and bake as much as I do, you normally have something prepared when guests come over, right? Whenever I got someone coming to our place for a movie or game night I love to prepare stuff I normally don’t do (during the week). Snacks that are great for a crowd but not perfect if you are only two at home. Snacks like these Potato Skins with Bacon & Cheese, for example. Absolutely divine but a bit much if you want to eat all of them alone ;P
Fall is here. At least in Berlin. Temperatures dropped and it finally started to rain. Not sure if I like that. I appreciate the lower temperatures and the foggy mornings, but I do not like the rain and less light during the day… but it also means you can finally cook hearty meals again. Not only salad because it was too hot to do anything else. Time for stews and soups like this Creamy Potato Soup with Spinach, for example. Not yet a super heavy dish but we are getting there ;P
Something you will find on our dinner table quite often in summer is a nice salad. They are easy to prepare, no need to spend hours in the kitchen, and most of the time they are healthy and perfect on a hot day. This Greek Potato Salad is inspired by a Greek Shepherd’s Salad and they know how to eat well and healthy on a hot summer day. The salad also reminds me of my last vacation in Greece… if you serve the salad to me on the beach along with some nice drinks, everything would be perfect ;)
Classic plain cheesecakes have a lot of fans I think. They taste delicious, they are (hopefully) super creamy and great as a dessert or sweet snack whenever you need something to indulge yourself ;) There are also cheesecakes that are a bit more “special”. Can you imagine making your cheesecake with potatoes? Well… it’s actually something that is “a thing”. Best example: this delicious Potato Cheesecake with Raspberries & Blueberries (and meringue topping). Sounds interesting, right? ;)
There are several dishes I cook quite regularly – that’s stews and curries. Why you may ask? Because those dishes are normally really delicious and most of the time really easy to prepare. Best example – this delicious Potato & Cauliflower Curry. You throw everything in a large pot, let it simmer for a bit and at the end, you got yourself a delicious meal. Enough to feed a whole family, or if you are only two you can eat for several days. Something I like because that means I do not have to cook every day ;P
Zürich is one of the best-known and most popular cities in Switzerland. After finishing university I was thinking about moving to the beautiful city at Lake Zurich – not far from where I actually grew up. I was torn between the lovely (and expensive) Swiss city and Berlin where I live now… I guess you can figure out how the story ended ;P Nonetheless, I still have “roots” in Switzerland and we love to make one of the most popular Swiss dishes here at home – Zürcher Geschnetzeltes with Rösti. It’s so good!
Hi, my name is Marc. I'm a graphic designer.
I love my job, but in between I love to bake and try new things in the kitchen. A lot of my friends and colleagues encourage me to bake - for a very simple reason: they get the leftovers - and it seems they like it most of the time ;)
