Mac & Cheese with shrimps – Käsemakkaroni mit Garnelen

Deutsch Mac & Cheese are an institution in the USA and, unlike Älplermaggrone and Käsespätzle, are considered a side dish. In the long run that would be too lavish for me, that’s pure hip gold. It doesn’t help much if I replace part of the milk with vegetable broth. Nonetheless, it is very tasty, which is certainly still on our […]

Gravad lax classic – Gravad lax klassisch

Deutsch This salmon is classic because only salt, sugar and dill are used for the marinade. There are now countless recipes with citrus fruits and all kind of herbs. I doubt whether you can still taste the fish. Originally, „buried“ salmon was a method of preservation in the Scandinavian countries, where the seasoned and well-packaged fish was buried in the […]

Deutsch This is a fork of the classic ‚Homard armoricaine‘, the lobster in Armoricain sauce, but the sauce tastes also with mussels, squid and octopus. It is not quite clear where the name originates. There are theories that that is not actually americaine but armoricaine after Armorica, Breton for land by the sea. Another legend is that a Breton chef […]

Deutsch Paella recipes there are certainly as many as there are Valencians. Paella is available only with meat (pork, poultry, rabbit), only with seafood (prawns, clams, cuttlefish, and sometimes fish that is otherwise too small for sale) or just mixed as in my recipe. Presumably, the origin was a poor man’s food as with so many famous recipes in the […]

Pasta with octopus in tomato sauce – Pasta mit Krake in Tomatensauce

I have an old recipe for squid/octopus in armoricaine/americaine sauce. But since we cooked 80% Italian this week, since we can’t go to Italy after my wife’s […]

Halaslé – Hungarian fish soup – Ungarische Fischsuppe

Deutsch This soup I ate the first time at the age of 12 years. A co-worker of my uncle, a Hungarian, has prepared the soup in a cauldron over an open fire in the garden. The whole was then served first the broth as a soup and the fish and potatoes as a main dish. If I remember correctly, there […]
