Tuscan style pappardelle with hare – Pappardelle auf toskanische Art mit Hase

Deutsch Germany in 2020: roe and stag come from New Zealand, rabbits from Argentina. Only wild boars are still available from local hunting. Searching for local game traders or forestry offices on the Internet took me across Germany, local sources could not be found. There is the local butcher who only sells the noble parts.

Beef sugo in the kind of the Ragu alla Bolognese – Rindersugo nach Art eines Ragu alla bolognese

Deutsch The Ragú by the sisters Margaritha and Valeria Simili from Bologna is one of the innumerable variants of the Ragú bolognese, whereby my version stands out again. I don’t use minced meat but cut beef into fine cubes. What doesn’t get in with me is milk. So far it has always curdled, which doesn’t look very appetizing. Certainly the […]

We have a field with three levels for small, medium and large pots/pans, two small fields and a medium sized field where you can add an extra field for oval pots. As the saying goes, the pasta is not waiting for the sauce […]

Italia meets Swabia, a fusion of an Italian chanterelle sauce with Swabian spaetzle – Italien trifft Schwaben, italienische Pfifferlingssauce mit schwäbischen Spätzle

Deutsch Actually, this is a leftover meal, in which I’ve used so many legacies of my sweetheart and whatever was left in the fridge. I even found the wine in it. The broth was from the freezer. The sauce got the typical Italian touch with olive oil, garlic and Pecorino romana. The spaetzle baked in fat and finished the fusion […]
