As with the stuffed peppers, you can mix a normal meatball mixture with soaked rolls […]

Deutsch This is one of the oldest dishes in the old canteens of the former Hoechst AG (whose core is now Sanofi/Aventis and several other companies) and in its simplicity also one of the best.

Deutsch For the vegetable course in a French menu, I was looking for a suitable vegetable.

Tabbouleh – Syrian Bulgur Salad – syrischer Bulgursalat

Deutsch I originally classified the dish in North Africa because the salad is also made with couscous. Hence this combination with the Merguez, which definitely comes from the Maghreb.
