    Lunch 2021

    Highly aromatic aged Comté (2yrs). Raw Sauerkraut Several types of brawn (with names in photo) Rye bread and non alcoholic beer More beer Pumpernickel and smoked herring Past Easter in Chilean Patagonia. Did a jump at 5:30pm, got up at 6 the next morning for another adventure. The tip of Villarrica can be seen in photo above, the snow-capped peak behind the canopy. Finally, made it to the crater of Villarrica. People for scale.

    Dinner 2021

    SV pork belly Duck pancakes in top left corner. To eat I sliced the slices thinly and ate them like tacos. This half kilo piece lasted 3 different meals. The beer Some people like to eat till they drop, I like to go walking till I drop. Past Easter in Austrian Alps. It's still safe to be alone in the Austrian woods. Forgot this: croissant dough filled with chopped mixed nuts and poppy seeds. Unfortunately, the fine spring weather didn't last but I made the most of it. This is the first food photo made in

    Lunch 2021

    Everything is loaded with ginger and dried shimp in this meal. Pointed cabbage. Tomato-scramble egg soup Fried taukwa tofu, flavoured with home-made chilli oil. Nice Gose Yes, exactly. Thank you. And some more preps that I know of: Krautkrapfen (roll in dough and then bake or steam. Can be layered like lasagne) Soup, gulyash/gulasch, casseroles, stews, to fill potato dumplings, strudel, pancakes, Bratlingen/puffer (fritters), Kuchen (bake like a cake or tart)

    Dinner 2021

    Black pudding, calf's liver and Speck. With Sauerkraut and bread dumplings. The lowly smoked herring. Spinach with cream underneath. Weather forecast promises spring on Tuesday. So far nothing but rain and cold, and hail showers in March. Yesterday hail: But I'm so glad this is over!

    Lunch 2021

    My imaginary Austrian granny would be proud of me! Button dumplings and scrambled eggs. Tyrolean-style cheese-bread fried dumplings in a broth of beef shin. Sauerkraut is a typical side dish. I like mine raw with crispy-fried Speck (a type of smoked bacon). 2/3 of Austria looks like this:

    Dinner 2021

    Purple carrots were cooked together with the octopus (on purpose). Like beetroots, purple carrots stain everything. Steamed halibut with Sichuan broad bean paste and fermented black beans

    Lunch 2021

    Semolina pancakes Pumpernickel, scrambled eggs and shrimps. Red cabbage tossed in gherkin brine. And German beer alongside. I got Anchor again yesterday. One bottle shop near me still sells these particular 2. I also like the nice labels.

    Dinner 2021

    Yellow puree is squash SV ginger chicken German beer The inside of a plane*. Still remember it? *My plane could not land in Lüderitz due to a big sand storm and had to return to the capital. The next morning they sent an empty plane to take the total of 5 passengers to Lüderitz again.

    Dinner 2021

    Came home from all afternoon biking and cooked this meal in one pan. Squash dumplings were made in advance and vacuum sealed so they only needed to warm up in the same pan. Steamed the brill yesterday: A little bird told me spring can't be far away

    Lunch 2021

    Lunches this week only needed opening packages and tins. A year ago in Mexico: curious whale approached me whilst holding intense eye contact. Who's watching whom now? This is what a whale sees underwater.

    Dinner 2021

    Not this one... it's protected. Also not this one. It's protected. Most likely. Wild season is coming to an end so I thought I'd eat some now. Don't care for rabbit (and besides, they are all imported from China). Half a bottle of wine went in here Baker thinks I give the crumbs to the garden birds* every time he empties the tray under the slicer into a bag for me. Free sourdough crumbs become bread dumplings. Very chewy and "substantial". (*I buy actual bird food for the garden birds)
