Food and Travel
Last weekend I spent a day doing something I love, namely working with food. I attended a food photography workshop in Stuttgart and was able to challenge myself to style and photograph things I usually don't.
When I serve cake, I often hear: Germans have cake baking in their blood! I don't sit down for a piece of cake every day, or every weekend for that matter, but when I do then I take my time and savor it.
Every year for the past three, my husband gives me a surprise gift for my birthday. This year it was a stay in a Swiss Historic Hotel.
What do you do when you receive a box of macarons? First photograph them, then sit back and enjoy!
After two weeks of glorious spring weather, the much needed rain came. With the rain, it turned cold and now snow is falling.
After a week in the green north of La Palma, we headed into the geologically younger and much drier southern part of the island.
Until I was introduced to Jerusalem artichokes, I thought I could only enjoy artichokes in summer, when they are in season.
I am a tea person and drink at least one cup of tea on an almost daily basis. What is better than enjoying a warm cookie, or two, with a steaming cup?
We spent two lovely weeks hiking on the island of La Palma, one of the Canary Islands, also known as "la isla verde", and we arrived just in time for the almond blossom and it was more magnificent than I had imagined.
While waiting for winter to finally arrive, I decided to make one of my salads which can be served either in summer or in winter.
