  1. Koya-san is fantastic ... do you do a temple stay ? They sometimes offer hands on food preparation (zen-vegetarian, of course). I envy you !
  2. Bangers and mash

    Germans are known for their euphemisms...
  3. Bangers and mash

    I beg to differ ... sausage-wise and probably in most other instances as well
  4. Ants! Ive had enough!

    I know it's a bit gore, but I usually grab a few, decapitate them and put their heads on tip of shortened tooth picks for display in strategic parts of my flat. Scares them off every time ...
  5. eG Cook-Off 75: Meatballs

    My god, you are the meatball queen !!!
  6. Dinner 2017 (Part 3)

    No, I am in Mannheim. There is a "chain" of these Andechser outlets, serving their beer and sometimes cheeses from the monastery. A good choice for a hearty dinner, so my usual pick for dinner. I am very fond of Turkish food and honestly, my first dinner is always a mixed grill plate with Döner, lamb skewers (both Köfte and leg) and chicken (see below). Fresh salads and usually boiled grains (rice, bulgur). Fresh flatbread straight from the oven, for free. Only issue is that the ones in Mannheim do not serve alcohol and for me meat should go with beer (it's a German thing I guess ...).

    When in Germany ... While I do prefer other cuisines over that of my home country, you just can't argue with piles of meat and beer Haxe, Bratkartoffeln, Andechser Spezial (1L glass) and Schnapps. One happy meal ...
  8. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    I do hate starting business trips on a Saturday night. What reconciles me, however, is having Dan Dan Mian, Champagne and one or two Old Fashioned in the Cathay lounge. They do a good job here ...

    Don't worry - you can't taste radiation, but it sure helps them to grow
  10. Check this out ... https://www.lecreuset.fr/recherche-par-materiel/les-forgees-aluminium-forge-fonte-d-aluminium Aluminum plus perfluorated Polymer coating (probably a PEEK derivative).
  11. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    Desperation dinner: "Banh mi" with Spam, Omelet, quick pickled onion and carrots and a healthy dose of cilantro. Basically the entire content of our fridge. Plus some chicken croquetas, because they fell out of the freezer first when I searched for something eatable ...

    True on the beer! Asahi however is my "go to" choice, especially when I am through with all the seasonal options ...
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 2)

    I wanted to participate in the Meatball cook-off, but the lazy Sunday got the better of me. So: Pide with minced lamb, egg, cilantro. At the end maybe Kofta would have been faster, but hey ...
  14. Rural restaurants

    Etxebarri comes to mind. And El Bulli before it closed.
  15. Lunch! What'd ya have? (2017)

    Lazy Sunday lunch and comfort food for a German-Catalan family in Hong Kong: Nürnberger sausages, Bratkartoffeln (home fries), onion beer gravy and fried eggs with runny yolks for the Catalans to dip the potatoes. And while the little one refuses to eat anything he doesn't now - if it looks remotely like a sausage and comes with his favourite curry-scented ketchup, it's always a winner ... Japanese seasonal beer, just because ...
