Stuffed squid tubes – Gefüllte Tintenfischtuben

Deutsch Stuffed squids belong on the menu around the Mediterranean. Usually minced meat is seasoned very heavily with garlic and herbs. On the European side there are oregano, thyme and/or rosemary, on the southern side cumin is a must. In addition to the minced meat stuffing, I have developed two other stuffings, one with chopped prawns and the other based […]

Coq au Riesling

Deutsch I think chicken in a wine sauce is available in all European countries where wine is grown. Let’s start in Germany with the Woihinkelsche. This is traditionally cooked either in Pinot Noir or Riesling. In France there is also the classic variant in Burgundy or in Alsace with Riesling. In Italy there are tons of recipes based on white […]

Tarte Tatin

Deutsch The tarte tatin is also a kind of French national shrine. The apple filling is first caramelized in a pan. The pan is then covered with a layer of batter and baked in the oven.

Squid/octopus armoricaine – Tintenfisch/Krake armorikanisch

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 […]

Beef roast in red wine – Rinderbraten in Rotwein

Deutsch The beef roast in red wine is a German-French combination, which probably originates from the Boeuf bourguignon. As our French neighbors are no friends of so large roasts, the meat is cut into large pieces, while we Germans prefer the whole roast. 2 servings Ingredients: 600 g beef roast from neck, shoulder or leg 1 tablespoon oil salt pepper […]
