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 […]

Loup de mer in olive oil and thyme – Wolfsbarsch in Olivenöl und Thymian

Deutsch The idea for this recipe I found in the book Fish & Seafood by Rotraud Degner. The recipe is ingenious in its simplicity, something like that can only come from Italy.

Pasta with seafood – Pasta mit Meeresfrüchten

Deutsch Pasta with seafood is in Germany usually with a pre-cooked, frozen seafood mix without peel.

Spaghetti carbonara

Deutsch This it is the original, no cream, no pancetta but Guanciale, the air-dried pork cheek, no Parmesan but Pecorino and fortunately I was able to buy Pecorino romano, which is becoming rarer, because it is increasingly displaced by the Sardinian competition.
